Before ABC decided to pull the plug on the rogue submarine spy-fi drama Last Resort, the writers were prepping for a full season order that would never come.
American Horror Story: Asylum's mad tale finally comes to an end, Last Resort signs off forever, and Felicia Day goes LARPing on Supernatural.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
With a solid bit of ratings data in the books, ABC has made a decision on two of their freshmen series—the awesome Last Resort and scary soap 666 Park Avenue. So what's the latest?
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.
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?
