666 Park Avenue and Last Resort Cancelled

Link
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.
I watched two episodes of Last Resort before giving up, and four episodes of 666 Park Avenue. I genuinely thought that Last Resort was going to a lot more exciting than it turned out to be. 666 started off strong, but delved into soap opera territory very quickly.

I haven't seen either yet. Would catch up w/Netflix someday but it sounds like neither were worth it.

I thought 666 might be a fun, spooky, sexy, glitzy romp but no such luck, huh?

I was actually enjoying Last Resort, so that sucks, but I gave up fast on 666.

Re: 666 Park Avenue and Last Resort Cancelled

Not terribly surprised about either being cancelled. I really tried to like 666, because I like Terry O'Quinn,but it's a bit too repetitive and the leads --the young couple--are dull as dishwater. I thought Last Resort, however, might make it a little bit longer.

They really should have made Last Resort a mini-series. It probably would have done well in the ratings and would have gotten attention for being an "event." But the premise is too limiting to sustain an entire series and I think that's why people started dropping out.

One reason 666 Park Avenue was cancelled was because of Hurricane Sandy destroyed most of it's sets

The problem with 666 Park Avenue is that the much better American Horror Story exists.

Both are horror shows, but the one on cable has the better writing, acting, production vaules, and being on cable means it can get away with tons of graphic violence and sex.

The last two episodes of Last Resort were horrible, I think ABC saw there was no plan and pulled the plug. I wish they have them 7 more episodes and called it a miniseries event.

Last Resort--can't say I'm disappointed--I gave up on it after about 2-3 episodes. I don't know when the networks are going to realize these ambitious limited premise series just don't work. It also didn't help that the cast was bland as could be and the characters were annoying. Add to that another conspiracy driving the mythology--tired of those.

Park Ave on the otherhand is the only show I enjoyed. The pilot was mediocrre but the show definitely picked up over the last several weeks. I plan to see it through the final 13 episodes.

Well at least going into 2013 I'll be looking for something worthwhile since Park Ave was the only show I watch. The Following unfortunately looks like your standard serial killer fare with a troubled agent pulled back into duty--yawn. Zero Hour looks like another of those limited premise type shows so I don't expect much.

I don't care much for Park Ave, but I liked Last Resort.

Zero Hour's premise could go anywhere, so I don't see how that's any more limited than Once Upon a Time or Grimm, both successful.
