666 Park Avenue: Cancelled by ABC

666 park avenue canceledTo little surprise, ABC has cancelled 666 Park Avenue, their struggling Sunday night series. While the network will air all 13 episodes, there won’t be any after that. In addition, ABC also cancelled Last Resort today and CBS canned Partners.

666 Park Avenue follows a Midwest couple who’ve moved to New York City. They end up managing The Drake, a prestigious residential hotel that’s not as nice a building as it seems. The TV series features the talents of Terry O’Quinn, Vanessa Williams, Dave Annable, Rachael Taylor, Robert Buckley, Mercedes Masöhn, Helena Mattsson, Samantha Logan, and Erik Palladino.

The show debuted on September 30th, in ABC’s troubled Sundays at 10pm timeslot. The premiere’s ratings weren’t very impressive, attracting a mediocre 2.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 6.9 million total viewers. That was 30% lower than what Pan Am had registered a year earlier.

666 Park Avenue TV show supportPark Avenue’s numbers have gotten even worse since the debut. The coveted demographic dropped to a 1.7 rating in week two (down 19%) and a 1.5 rating in week three (down another 12%). The ratings perked up a bit in weeks four (a 1.7 rating) and five (a 1.6 rating) but dropped to a 1.2 rating last Sunday.

But, what do you think? Should ABC have cancelled 666 Park Avenue? Will you miss the show?

    I think the show was great, I think all or most reality TV need to be cancelled, there are way too many of them and they are getting to be too much, I would like to watch shows with real actors rather than wanna be actors.

    I loved that show, wish they would continue to air it so good and exciting. This ruins my day & night.

    Seems every time I really fall in love with a series they remove it. Was in a bad time slot to begin with. I wasn’t even aware it had come back on, And Id been watching and waiting for it. So I guess we will just be left hanging with no idea who what happened at the end. So very disappointed. Feel they did not even give it a chance. Same as they do many of their really good shows. Bad time slot, no real fan fare, so many don’t even see it. Listen to the viewers!

    I hate that this show 666 Park Avenue was cancelled – they always do that…just when it was getting good ..poof .. all that time wasted. Thanks ABC, real good. Why not give a show a chance. Seinfeld was terrible also in the first year but lucky for them the ABC euthanizers weren’t around.

    I loved 666. I was not always able to watch it when it aired originally, but I made sure to follow up on missed episodes on demand. I really liked the shows concept and I am really upset that it was cancelled. I believe this show would have deserved a second season, aired at a different time spot.
