[TV] NBC Moves Out Of “666 Park Avenue”

666_Park_Header_51512

This is why I typically don’t watch a new television series until it’s picked up for a second season.

It looks as though the sub will never get off the island in “Last Resort” and “666 Park Avenue” is an address to be forever haunted, says Variety.

“666 Park Avenue,” which airs at 10 o’clock Sunday, the supernatural drama has been up against NBC’s “Sunday Night Football,” which draws a big weekly audience.

Starring “Lost” vet Terry O’Quinn as a demonic superintendant of a high-end Gotham apartment building, “666 Park Avenue” has been averaging a 2.2 rating in the 18-49 demo and 6.3 million total viewers in live-plus-7 data.

Show is from Warner Bros. Television and was created by David Wilcox, who exec produces with Matt Miller, Gina Girolamo and Leslie Morgenstein.

ABC plans to run the entire 13 episodes already produced before canceling each show.

    this is why i rarely (VERY rarely!) start new shows anymore. after like the 3rd or 4th show being prematurely canceled (in the past) i just got so tired of it (i’m STILL not over ABC’s canceling of INVASION! lol).

      Cable is where it’s at! Broadcast tv sucks now. AMC, HBO, Starz, etc is awesome! NBC, ABC, FOX (and god forbid my guilty pleasures on the joke that is The CW) are full of dreck nowadays.

    oh, ABC has also canceled LAST RESORT as well.

  • djblack1313

    oops, nevermind you already said that. LOL.

    Psh. Sure, right when things are finally getting good they cancel it. Well I’m at least glad ABC didn’t ax Nashville.

    Saw the pilot….couldn’t get into it, so I stopped after the first episode. Terry O’Quinn is the ONLY reason why I gave this show a chance in the first place (loved him as Locke on Lost). But yeah, the first episode of 666 Park Avenue couldn’t hold my attention, and the NFL is just a ratings juggernaut, so this doesn’t shock me.

    Oh, well we still have AHS: Asylum and The Walking Dead!

    rather annoyed. i actually am enjoying 666 Park Avenue, i think its a great twisty show and was looking forward to another season or 2.

    Wtf is wrong with channels these days?? They cancel all the good shows :@@ i was hooked on Ringer (still extremely upset and mad at CW) and they canceled it. Then they canceled The River (also a really cool show and had potential for a great second season) and now 666 PA?? But they’re keeping all the investigating series and the ones with spoiled or supernatural teens. It’s really annoying.

    I followed this show for 5 episodes hoping that it would pick up but it never did. It had an interesting concept but it ended up being really boring.

    I have to say, I really enjoy “666 Park Avenue”. I am sad that it has been canceled. I thought the stories were really going to many interesting places… sadly now, we’ll never see what could of been… *sigh. Just think, if the Brady Bunch or Gilligan’s Island, etc., came out these days, they wouldn’t have survived beyond a season to achieve iconic classic television status… hmmm…

    On the main title you did mean ABC and not NBC correct… I’m sad to see it go…

  • Joe-Banger

    Well the good news at least is that NBC is letting you all know in advance instead of pulling the plug without notice! Ive seen many shows I liked or loved go off the air without any notice and that really burned me! Talk about a cliff hanger! LOL.

    WTF MAN???? Well Last Resort I thought that would of been canned from the very start. But 666 is so damn different and awesome. I hope another station picks it up or maybe netflix can pick it up. But I didn’t expect a 2nd season of 666 how can you do one ?
