ABC Cancels "666 Park Avenue," "Last Resort"
By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- ABC has pulled the plug on its freshman dramas "666 Park Avenue" and "Last Resort."

Both series however will continue to broadcast their initial 13-episode orders on Sundays and Thursdays, respectively.

The news was first reported by Deadline.com.

"Last Resort" and "666 Park Avenue" both posted a 1.3 rating among adults 18-49 in their most recent telecasts, matching their series lows.

Last year's time period holders "Charlie's Angels" and "Pan Am" suffered similar fates as the former served up a 1.1 in said demo for its final Thursday broadcast (11/10/11) while the latter - following the more potent "Desperate Housewives" - actually outperformed "666" in year-to-year comparisons (1.8 on 11/13/11).

Reactions from the cast and creators:

3:12 PM - @AutumnReeser: "Thank you so much to all our #LastResort fans for your support! All 13 episodes will air, and there are some AMAZING stories coming up!!"

3:48 PM - @ShawnRyanTV: "News is true. No Back 9 for #LastResort. We will film and and air all 13 episodes. We're going to give you no-holds barred kick-ass ending."

4:21 PM - @OQuinnTerry: "Thanks for the love... Onward and upward! Peace (not) out!"

4:40 PM - @jschramer: "Thanks for all the love & support for #LastResort. We won't be adding to the season, but there are 6 eps left that will BLOW YOUR MIND :)"

4:53 PM - @KarlGajdusek: "Sorry, folks. #LastResort didn't make the cut. We'll still bring you 13 episodes of kick ass, but then we take our bow. Thanks for watching."
