More network shows canceled

ABC's '666 Park Avenue,' 'Last Resort' canceled

(CNN) - CBS wasn't the only network cleaning house on Friday.

As "Partners" was swiftly axed from that network's calendar, ABC has done the same with "666 Park Avenue" and "Last Resort."

Freshman supernatural drama "666," which centered on a tony New York apartment building where residents faced hellish circumstances, has been struggling in ratings for weeks.

Airing after ABC's hit "Revenge" didn't help, and the network opted against ordering an additional nine episodes to run after the initial 13, Variety reports.

The same can be said for another one of the network's freshman dramas, "Last Resort," whose cancellation was more surprising. The series centered on a Navy SEALs submarine crew who wound up on an island after surviving an attack, and was critically well-received.

But being scheduled at 8 p.m. on Thursdays did "Last Resort" zero favors, and, like "666," will finish out its 13 episodes before heading off the air.
