ABC Cancels Two Drama Series B&C
ABC has canceled two drama series, B&C reports. The network will burn off the remaining episodes of freshman shows "Last Resort" and "666 Park Avenue," but will not place back orders for complete seasons.
Both series struggled to build an audience after debuting with modest numbers, the piece notes. "Last Resort" was scheduled at 8 p.m. on Thursdays, which has proved to be a difficult timeslot for ABC. In previous seasons the network has tried "Charlie's Angels" and "My Generation" in the slot, ultimately canceling those series as well.
"666 Park Avenue" was up against NFL football on Sunday nights, and its most recent episode matched the series low with a 1.3 average rating in the key 18-49 demo.
Both shows will air their remaining episodes in their initial 13-episode orders.
