ABC to Cancel Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue

by at . Comments

ABC has announced the cancellation of two new programs, though there's a twist:

Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue will complete their initial 13-episode order before going off the air.

  • Sam & Marcus Prepare for Negotiations
  • 666 Park Avenue Cast Pic

Though Last Resort has received critical acclaim, it struggled to hit six million viewers on a weekly basis, garnering only 5.8 during a critical airing this past Thursday.

The scary writing has been on the wall longer for 666 Park Avenue. It often fell below five million total viewers and, though placed in an alluring timeslot following Once Upon a Time and Revenge, failed to attract a regular audience.

For the show The Last Resort-
There are so many possibilities for the storyline. you have those who served in the armed forces who can tell you stories and your writers can build the show around it but leaving out pertinent secrets of the military missions.
you guys are really DUMB. AND for Mr. J. J. Abrams and Mr. Kripke they can show you a thing or two about writing storylines, since their show Revolution for which I wish I could talk to them and ask them one simple question how did they hear my synopsis of what would happen when all lights go out around the world.

one other bit of info. why is it when you finally want to tell why the Drake became infested with supernatural happenings especially when you begin the story of the grandmother and why she is the one who can tell the entire story.
And when that man in the newspaper article who killed his wife.
what is wrong with you people or is it that you have forgotten your English Literature storytelling lessons whether fiction/non-fiction?

I wonder what a second season of Last Resort could be? It is such a well written show, I am sure they could come up with so many new arcs that could pull in a lot more fans.
