ABC Cancels Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue

Get More: Cancellations, News

Last Resort CancelledABC has done what the U.S. Armed Forces could not: It sunk the Colorado.

The network is choosing not to move forward with Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue, TVLine has confirmed.

RELATED | ABC’s Nashville Gets Full-Season Pick-Up

Despite a recent order for two more scripts apiece — traditionally seen as a vote of confidence — neither series will receive a back-nine pick-up, meaning both series will end after 13 episodes.

An ABC rep tells TVLine the network is planning to air the remaining hours in their entirety.

Both freshman dramas had struggled to maintain an audience. Thursday’s Last Resort, which reportedly was an important factor in whether or not the series would receive a full-season pick-up, saw a slight ratings drop to 5.8 million total viewers and a 1.3 demo rating. 

Similarly, last Sunday’s 666 Park earned only 4 mil/1.3, matching the previous episode’s series low.

  • 666 I could take or leave, but I’m really heartbroken over Last Resort – it was probably my favorite of this year’s newbies.

    • Could not got into 666 despite Terry O’Quinn starring in it. Most of the LOST alums have been struggling on unsuccessful shows: Elizabeth Mitchell is now on her second show (remember the likewise ill-fated “V”?) and is now being wasted on Revolution, which to me is not as good as Last Resort. At least Michael Emerson has a hit on Person of Interest, my favorite now. Hoped Last Resort would succeed but the last two episodes were bizarre: first the Alice in Wonderland drugfest then the annoyingly overly segmented saga last night with starkly out-of-place drinking/love scenes. Shawn Ryan could never manifest the innovative greatness of The Shield.

      • Last Resort started out great and then fell on its face every episode thereafter. It had some of the worst episodes I’ve seen this season. 666 was just above Elementary on the shows I watch and it wasn’t good enough. I’m not too sad that they got cancelled.

        • Story line wasn’t too bad but things seemed to get worse as the series progressed. As a retired Navy man I was appaled at the disrespect shown by enlisteds to officers, including the Chief of the Boat (COB) who is supposed to set the example. Then there are the SEALS who seem to think they are NOT a part of the Navy but are independent contractors. They do what they please. The last episode was even more confusing. The XO’s wife was kidnapped off the ship. How did the XO and his SEAL buddy know to go to Manilla to search for her? Flogging went out of the Navy back in the 1800s yet Captain Chaplain uses flogging as a punishment. Never in the history of the US Navy has there ever been such a rebelious crew. Movement from ship to shore is never shown. Did they have some means of transportation? It was NEVER clearly explained why the Colorado HAD to be sunk. Why not just let it return to port and arrest the crew for disobedience of orders.

          This show was badly in need of a Navy advisor, preferably someone retired with a wealth of experience. This show could have gone places with a good advisor and better writers who understood Navy life. It is a shame it was so bad. I kinda enjoyed watching it, mistakes and all. Sure beat any reality show.

      • I cannot believe they are canceling 666, just when it is really getting good! Give it a chance. It is at the point that I will not start watching anything new, just to watch it get canceled. I’ll get it on Netflix later on if it’s picked up.

        • I hope they give it a second chance as this series is going to get better as time goes on.I will giving up on any new series as ABC is to fast to pull the plug

    • Yeah, ditto on both shows. What really sucks is that ABC chose the worst possible time slot to put Last Resort in and it never really had a chance to build an audience. What a missed opportunity this was.

      Comment by TigerNightmare – November 16, 2012 06:39 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I so agree with this post. Last Resort should never have been slotted for 8:00. I was really excited about it after watching the pilot…too bad it lost its way. 666 Park seemed a pale imitation of last seasons American Horror Story. I watched the pilot and then flushed it.

    • Why Don’t you IDIOTS CANCELL: ALL YOUR NEWS SHOWS. SPORTS SHOWS. DANCING SHOWS. ALL YOUR SPORTING SHOWS. SUNDAY NEWS SHOWS. JUST PUT ON 24/7 OF CARTOONS. FOR AS LOBG AS I LIVE.

    • 666 is one of the best shows to come along since Lost. Sunday nights are going downhill again. Perhaps it will get picked up by another network. Hint…Hint…SYFY?…FX?…Somebody, Pleeeease…!

      • I thouroughly enjoyed 666 and Last Resort… I am not sure why all of the unique story lines get canned… give these shows a chance to survive…. i am so tired of cop shows and reality tv…. it makes me want to not want to invest time in any new show because I get hooked and they get cancelled : V/Flash Forward/The Event…the list goes on and on…

        • Your so right I was not sure about 666 at first, It started of messy but its starting to get good and actually lead somewhere Im disapointed its been cancelled, and your right about investing in new shows the event and V were good I forgot about them

          Comment by Nieem – December 4, 2012 01:10 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • I feel the sane way. I liked V as well. What pisses me off the most is they cancel shows without giving them any resolution! Abc should at least let the viewers and show have that. It seems like all that’s on tv anymore is reality and cop shows, don’t get me wrong, law and order svu is one of my favorites,not that it hires on abc. Anything a little different gets tossed.

        • I agree. I am so tired of investing time in watching a TV Show just to be left wondering what was next. I enjoyed Last Resort, but I guess the mentality of your executives is to place “Dancing” shows in the best time slots. ABC killed the “Last Resort” BEFORE it had a chance.

      • I totally agree. I would love to see 666 picked by another network, I.e. SYFY. They know how to do scary. Loved 666.

      • I definitely hope someone will pick it up that can do it justice. Umm, and pick up The River as well. It (666) did not have to move so slowly but I thought it was building up to something.

    • Honestly. I’m done watching a single show from this series. The fact that ‘one million moms’ can target this show for having ‘the mark of the beast’ in it’s title and get away with it? I say we start burning christians on their cross. Their zealousness should equate to death…not me to be forced to live by their standards.

    • I am saddened to see both Last Resort and 666 Park Ave. leave the weekly TV line up I enjoyed both series tremendously. The shows taking there spot (in my estimation only) leave a lot to be desired and have no meat to the plots of the show. I am disappointed with the ABC executive decision.

        • That is exatly what my first thought was when I read this. Tried Last Resort but couldn’t get into it and ever since Last Resort has been “The Show That Stole Cinderella From Once Upon a Time” to me. She’s a woefully underused character on OUAT.

    • I agree. Powers that be should at least try different, better time slots for Last Resort before nuking it. They don’t even try to see if their initial optimism for this show will work somewhere else. They put in all this effort, time and money into making a show wiith substance and at the first bump in the road, they throw it all away. There is nothing on any of the major networks on a saturday night. The demographics on this nite would probably be better for Last Resort to survive. TRY SOMETHING! Some of us need substance in our TV watching, reality shows suck.

  • Never, EVER trust ABC to know what the hell it’s doing. I bought into Last Resort…that’s my fault but it won’t happen again. It’s the one network that will never attain any stability only because they are so quick on the trigger. Do yourselves a favor, give NBC a try….they at least give decent shows a chance to grab an audience.

    • I don’t think they were quick to the trigger on LR… I just don’t think a show like that fits their current brand image (i.e. lifetime lite).

      What ABC needs to realize is what exactly does it want its brand image to be? If it wants to diversify and attract more males to its brand, it needs to nurture and promote shows like Last Resort. Otherwise stick to your brand and don’t develop pilots aimed at a male demographic

      • Lol at “lifetime lite” there. That’s a good way to describe ABC these days. Shows like Grey’s Anatomy, private practice, once upon a time, revenge, scandal…A network full of those seems like the exact same opposite place for something like Last Resort.

        Side note,the actress who plays Grace is just too soft and princess-looking to buy as a naval Lieutenant. She was a weak spot in the cast.

    • LMAO, NBC canned Animal Practice well before ABC cancelled Last Resort and 666. ABC gave both shows plenty of time to show some life. They didn’t; they’re gone. Just watch something else. TV shows come and go.

  • So sad, Last Resort was one of the only two new shows I watch! …the second being Mob Doctor which we all know is next.

  • Damn. I really liked Last Resort, and I liked 666, as well. :)

  • I liked Last Resort at first, but then found it to be silly — it’s characters portrayed a lack of common sense. For such a small crew, in a dangerous place, the CO would have put in place a mandatory musters to account for all crew at all times. They would have also put in place a buddy system. When the female sailor was dropped off with explosives taped to her body or the COB kidnapped, drugged and tortured — it is more likely that they would been identified as missing muster and search teams dispersed. Instead, the crew sits around and parties. Nonsense! They needed better military liaisons to help writers develop realistic scenarios. I’ll still miss the show. Hopefully, it ends with a bang.

    • You pointed out many inconsistencies with the show. The characters are also poorly written, especially XO-Sophia. It could have been good, but they jumped the shark with the laughable Russian SEAL equivalents and fake relationships.

  • I love Last Resort… Unfortunately, fan excuse bingo her, it was aired in the wrong time and the wrong net. LR is primarily male friendly show aired on a night against Football and on a network that for all intents is the Lifetime of broadcast television.

    This show would have worked on Tuesday @ 9 or 10PM on ABC…

  • 5.8 million viewers isn’t enough? What a joke. I am really going to miss Last Resort.

  • Really enjoyed 666 Park Avenue. Last Resort was good at first but I was wondering where they were going with it.

  • i never got interested in either of these but that sucks for the viewers they did pull in, its never fun when a new show you just started watching gets canned (awake is still fresh in the memory, can you tell?).
    its a real shame for rachel taylor, she deserves a star maker not two shows getting dropped in two years, not to mention getting dropped from transformers after being the best part of the first one in order to give more screen time to megan fox’s ass

    • Agree about Rachel. This gorgeous, talented actress deserves better.
      Awake atleast had a somewhat decent ending. Just hope every show learns to wrap up when it knows its not coming back.

  • Bummer news about Last Resort. It was the best and most original of the new season, in my opinion, and I fear that its cancellation will only lead to more cop/doctor/soap dreck. Sigh. Heavy, heavy sigh.

    • Everything I’ve heard about ABC’s Zero Hour suggests it’s anything but cop/doctor/soap dreck. It’s apparently quite wacko.

      • Zero Hour looks awesome.

  • Well thank God I abandoned 666 after 2 episodes and Last Resort after 3…..
    666 looked goon on the paper and in trailer but was going nowhere. I didn’t really love first episode. It was just O’k. But I ave it chance and watched second episode. But it was kind of boring and I didn’’t care about any characters.And I didn’t care how it will go on.

    Last Resort never had a chance. It should have been mini-series with 6 episodes. First ep. was cool and fine. But where will it lead after they settle down on that island? They are gonna stay on that Island until they will be canceled and every episode they will have some small fights with locals and between themselves. AND THEY KILLED David Karofsky in first episode for absolutely no reason. I couldn’t believe it. Why? Max Adler was a well recognizable face. He even has fans. Why didn’t they let him be supporting character on Last Resort? It’s not like he was some big star who demanded more money.

    • now it’s going to be a mini-series with 13 episodes

  • I will miss Park Place because of the cast. But I was expecting it. The writing is really poor and the plots make no sense. I still don’t have a sense of where this is supposed to go. Last Resort was already boring me. The critical acclaim comes from the acting but the actual plot is terrible. The US bombing an unsuspecting Pakistan. A sub going rogue and firing a missile at the US. The evil US trying to destroy its own. Too much. I watched because I’m an ABC fan but I was getting restless and bored with the direction this was taking. ABC skewed towards women. They should try to appeal to that demographic with something that is not as patronizing and gratuitous as Charlie’s Angels. Maybe Body of Proof…

    • I wonder if NOW Rachael Taylor will wish she has returned to Grey’s Anatomy when she was asked after CA was cancelled.

  • I have no idea what I’m going to do with myself now Vanessa Williams is officially off my tv. She BETTER star in a show next season.

    Comment by Jason – November 16, 2012 03:45 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I AGREE!!!! What’s TV without Vanessa Williams, man!!!!??? She was too good for “666″ anyway, but still…I definitely think there’s going to be a void without her.

  • As cynical as it is, I’m so glad I never watched Last Resort. The previews actually looked great to me, but I just couldn’t see it surviving and I didn’t want to get invested. Looks like I made the right decision. Am I part of the problem? Perhaps. Perhaps viewer distrust of the networks hurts these shows. Still, if the pilot had good ratings (Like say, Revolution) I definitely would have re-watched the pilot and then commited to the series if I liked it. This just seemed immediately dead in the water.

    There were so many things against this show it’s baffling it even got picked up on ABC. First of all, ABC is definitely heavily skewing to a female-oriented audience for dramas. This seems much more like a male-oriented show. It doesn’t fit at all in their lineup. Also, a seemingly mature show like this airing at 8pm? Fail. Before Grey’s? Fail.

    This should have been on FX, hell even CBS.

    • Yes, I can see this doing quite well on CBS, which leans more toward male oriented programs. And I wish ABC would have given them another chance in a diferent timeslot, heck even try them out on Saturday night before giving them the ax.

  • With 666 being canceled, is terry o’quinn going back 2 h50

    Comment by Cody – November 16, 2012 03:51 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • well hmm should I even watch the episode of 666 Park Ave. that I have on the dvr from Sunday?

    Comment by Robin – November 16, 2012 03:51 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Not surprised about 666 though still too bad; the pilot was pretty terrible but it seemed to find some footing in the last 3 or 4 episodes, which were all very good. And Rachael Taylor, Dave Annable and of course my wonderful Vanessa Williams were all great(plus she had some pretty good chemistry with Terry O’Quinn). Still, hopefully this will bring Body of Proof back to the schedule sooner rather than later.

    • It definitely improved as time went on. I wasn’t planning to watch any new shows since last year most of the ones I did start ended up canceled, but was bored one night and stumbled onto 666. Kinda bummed now. Was looking forward to seeing how the craziness was going to play out. Hope they at least wrap it up nicely.

  • I was hoping 666 would get a full season just so they could finish the story…if they don’t give us some type of answers I’m going to be very upset…

    • What a wonderful idea!!!

      Comment by Chloe – November 16, 2012 05:01 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • GREAT idea-it would explain how she managed to get to live in the US, for starters. Ashley said to someone last season that she’d grown up in a dreary town in England named Croydon. Maybe it turned out she was dumped there by her American mother to live with her father or something. And they could bring on a great British acfor ti play her dad.

  • Can we please ship Rachael Taylor back to Grey’s Anatomy now? She had a great character on that show that really worked well with Alex. please?

    Not surprised on Last Resort. With 666 gone can we move Nashville to Sunday at 10? it would be such a better fit directly after revenge.
