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 was saddened to learn they cancelled my show. I really like this show and waited all week to watch another episode. So upset.

    I am getting tired of ABC altogether. They seem to cancel the best shows and cater to the bad ones. They are about their programing just about like they are with their politics. I have had it with them and I can live without them and I know many more people feel the same way I feel.

    One of the 4 shows we watch every week. Now, I suppose, it will be replaced by fake reality. Oh well. More Netflix now!

    Just terrible that ABC has cancelled 666 Park Avenue – it was an awesome show!!! Maybe they should’ve moved it to a different night

    Couldn’t they give it a second season?! I don’t watch much television at all, and it figures that one of the few shows I do watch gets the ax after one measly season. I would like to have seen a lot more of the Drake’s eerie story. ABC is not a channel I watch…well, except for 666, so I guess they’ve completely lost a viewer.

    This show is honestly amazing, and I am so sorry to hear that it is being canceled, it has just the right amount of action, suspense and romance. I honestly can not believe they canceled it, I think it was probably because of the time it was at, but if it was on at 10 pm on friday or saturday or 8 or 9 pm on any day, I’m certain the show would have had way more views. I can honestly say I am really going to miss this show!
