ABC has done what the U.S. Armed Forces could not: It sunk the Colorado. The network is choosing not to move forward with Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue, TVLine has confirmed. 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. Both freshman dramas had struggled to maintain an audience. Thursday’s Last Resort, which reportedly was an important factor in whether or not the series would receive a full-season pick-up, saw a slight ratings drop to 5.8 million total viewers and a 1.3 demo rating. Similarly, last Sunday’s 666 Park earned only 4 mil/1.3, matching the previous episode’s series low
I hope they will have enough time to give it a decent ending and not some cliffhanger ending... if filming is still going on, that is.
