Even though it’s always depressing to see one of your favorite shows come to a close before the first season is even over, there is at least a little bit of a silver lining here for fans of “Last Resort” as well as “666 Park Avenue”: ABC is not planning to leave you hanging when it comes to constructing some sort of proper ending to the shows.
According to a new report from TVLine, both of these drama series were told of their cancellation early enough that they have been able to re-work their endings, that was they can construct something that viewers will be reasonably satisfied with as a series-ender. It’s admittedly far earlier than anyone would have wanted to see the shows end, but at least this way everyone involved can save a little bit of face.
However, we still contend that the biggest problem with both these shows is merely that neither was given enough of a chance to build, as they both seemed to get better and better as time goes by. At this point, we’re almost hoping that Shawn Ryan returns to his roots from “The Shield” at FX, at least so that he will no longer have to worry about a great product getting the ax simply because not enough people are watching within the first few weeks. (There were a good many people watching “666 Park Avenue,” but nobody was bothering to do so live. This, dear readers, is proof that strong DVR numbers are no replacement for great live viewing figures.)
