It was big week for new and returning shows. Over on The CW, Arrow had a very promising premiere, and Beauty and the Beast got off to a pretty good start. Meanwhile The Walking Dead had a huge opening night, and things got worse for 666 Park Avenue and Last Resort.
It was another big week for some TV shows, while others slip further and further into obscurity. The Big Bang Theory once again set a high in viewers, while The Walking Dead continued to dominate Sunday night. But things weren't so good for shows like 666 Park Avenue, Last Resort and even Beauty and the Beast, all of which are slipping as we head toward the holiday break.
It looks like we'll never find out the dark mysteries behind Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue. ABC has canceled both new shows due to low ratings and opted not to pick up the back nine episodes. That means both shows will end after 13 episodes, with ABC planning on airing all the episodes.
One of the best new shows of the season, ABC's Last Resort, was an intriguing "what-if" about a U.S. nuclear sub crew going rogue amidst a global political conspiracy. Sadly, the network decided to pull the plug last week—and show creator Shawn Ryan is here to explain why.
We're very near the holiday break now, and some shows are already leaving us, but there's still plenty to talk about in TV. The Big Bang Theory once again set a record, dominating the whole week, while The Walking Dead slumped but still stayed on top, and Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue got some unwelcome news.
You're in luck, Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue fans. We're far enough into the new season that freshmen shows are starting to drop like flies, but at least these two recent casualties at ABC will be able to wrap things up with a proper finale.
Fall TV is finally upon us as we get to explore new frontiers, reboots and reality programming, while saying goodbye to some old friends. In part one of our three-part 2012 Fall TV Preview, we'll take a look at canceled and new shows.
As we noted in our Fall TV Preview this week, ABC's new thriller Last Resort is one of the most promising shows of the 2012-2013 TV season, a big idea with a big cast that could pack a big punch. The show doesn't premiere until September 27, but now you can watch the pilot two weeks early.
Premiere week has come and gone, and we've once again got a full slate of new fall shows to follow. This week saw the return of Fringe, Once Upon a Time, Person of Interest and more, along with the debuts of new shows like Elementary, 666 Park Avenue and Last Resort. So how'd they do?
What would you do if your government tried to kill you? And then what if you had the most powerful sub on Earth and a stack of nukes at your disposal? That's the premise of ABC's military thriller, Last Resort.
ABC has picked up nine new series, including the alien sitcom, The Neighbors, the conspiracy theory race-against-the-clock-to-save-humanity show Zero Hour, a series starring Lost's Terry O'Quinn involving an evil-infested building called 666 Park Avenue and the nuclear sub series, Last Resort.
ABC announced its Fall TV schedule today and released trailers for its new series which feature aliens, an evil apartment building and global conflict. No doubt, the success of the fairy-tale themed Once Upon a Time, which has been renewed for a second season, has inspired ABC to get creative.
