666 Park Avenue: Cancelled Because of One Million Moms?

666 park avenue cancelledIt was revealed yesterday that ABC had decided not to order any additional episodes of 666 Park Avenue. The show may not be technically cancelled but all acknowledge that it won’t be back. Thankfully all 13 episodes that have been produced are expected to air.

Before the show even premiered, One Million Moms (a site started by the conservative American Family Association) urged their readers to write to ABC to “strongly encourage” the network to cancel their plans to air the program. “Let them also know you are prepared to join thousands of other voices in urging advertisers to place it on their ‘do not advertise’ list and consider pulling all ads from the ABC network in protest.”

A later post lists some of 666 Park Avenue’s sponsors and encourages readers to email them in protest directly; Johnson & Johnson, Egg Beaters (ConAgra Foods), KFC (YUM Brands), Subway, Revlon, Colgate Total (Colgate-Palmolive), and Macy’s in protest of their commercial support.

666 Park Avenue TV show supportWednesday’s post claims victory, stating that none of the sponsors of the first episodes were seen advertising on later installments. The post urges readers to email their distaste for the program to other sponsors; Petco, Clorox, Outback, Dyson, Dairy Queen, and Red Lobster (Darden Restaurants).

While it was most likely just poor ratings that sank 666 Park Avenue, do you think that the protests to the network and their sponsors influenced ABC’s decision? Share your thoughts below.

I would like to hear what the moms have against this show, there is so much low values and violence broadcast on the rest of the channels! ABC I want the show back, moms you better watch Mtv for five minutes and watch all that $)$&8)7 that they are giving to your children as high values, before try to damage series like this one.

Are you kidding me with these moms. Kids should be in bed. Don’t watch if you don’t like it. I f eveyone complained and wanted certain shows off they would all be cancelled.
Put the damn thing back on. If you take this one off a lot more should come off. There are a lot of shows with violence, sexual inuendoes graphic scenes, language. Come on give a break. Why don’t they complain about all the commercials with sexual references. 666 is a great show.
