    i think the network should move the show to another night. it is apparent that this night and timeslot is going to be difficult for any show that they air. the network should have kept brothers and sisters on the air because no show has done better since they cancelled it. give 666 park avenue a chance and move it to another night and if the ratings then don’t increase then cancell the show.

    “666 Park Avenue” is an amazing horror-thriller soap. It has a brilliant cast, amazing writing and an incredible look to it with special effects. Why this is not a huge hit is stunning to me – what is wrong with people today? If it was on cable (like “The Walking Dead” or “American Horror Story” – without all the restrictions of network TV mind you!!) – it would be one. ABC needs to move it, not cancel it. It seems people will watch the boring CBS dramas no matter what (I say it’s old age with most). To think some say they won’t watch “666 Park Avenue” because there is 666 in the title … how pathetic, and paranoid. It’s lauaghable really … people afraid of their own shadows perhaps should not be up after 10pm. Yet, the same lot has no problem with zombies, graphic murders or anything else. Kudos to ABC – you make great TV.

      I watched “The Good Wife.” It keeps on getting better and better as the characters get fleshed out. The acting and writing are superb! What is laughable is that anyone would buy into the premise of “666 Park Avenue.” It has nothing to do with “666”, but from the tone of your comment Jed, I understand why you watch it!

      At first, I wasn’t going to watch it because it has “666” in the title. The word you’re looking for is “superstitious,” not “paranoid.” Then I decided to give the pilot a try and ultimately gave up on the show not because I’m a superstitious Catholic, but because it’s a bland, boring show.
