ABC's Freshman TV Series '666 Park Avenue' Closes Its Doors

The first meaningful casualty of the 2012 Fall TV season has been announced, with ABC canceling the creepy crawly New York-based 666 Park Avenue. The net says the hour-long spook drama, starring Terry O'Quinn and Vanessa Williams, alongside hotties Dave Annable and Robert Buckley, just never set fire to the ratings.

The show was set at The Drake Hotel in NYC, where you paid a dear price to remain a resident... To be honest, I was riveted by the first three episodes, and then the show started collecting in my long list of Tivo shows, although I do intend to see it through... for as long as it lasts.

Truly, this season appears to have fostered more aces than losers. Few freshmen shows had been canceled: only Animal Practice and Made In Jersey up to this point. Now, along with 666, ABC's Last Resort has also gotten the axe, also after 13 episodes; as well as CBS' The Wrap and Partners.

Meanwhile, CBS’ Elementary and Vegas have both been picked up for the full season. *
