Last Resort debuted to a mediocre 2.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 9.31 million viewers. The second episode dropped 14% in both categories and the third installment dropped another 16% in the demo. This week’s episode bumped up a little, by 6%. The drama averages a 1.9 in the demo with 7.81 million viewers.
666 Park Avenue premiered to an also-disappointing 2.1 rating in the demo with 6.9 million viewers. The second episode dropped 19% in the demo and 28% in viewership. Week three saw declines of 12% and 3% respectively. It currently averages a 1.8 in the demo and 5.57 million.
As you can see, neither of these shows is a hit and their numbers may very well may keep falling. By ordering two additional scripts for each of them, ABC is buying themselves a bit of time before deciding on the futures of the shows.
Because all of ABC’s new shows are ratings disappointments, it looks like the network is biding their time, waiting to see if any of them show positive signs of growth.
What do you think? Do you watch either Last Resort or 666 Park Avenue? Do you think either or both will get full season orders? Will either get a second season?
