It looks like we'll never find out the dark mysteries behind Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue. ABC has canceled both new shows due to low ratings and opted not to pick up the back nine episodes. That means both shows will end after 13 episodes, with ABC planning on airing all the episodes.

Initially ABC had ordered two additional scripts for both shows, however in both cases the viewership just never improved. Last week, Last Resort had just under six million viewers with a 1.4/4 share, and 666 Park Avenue dropped to under four million viewers with a 1.2/3 share.

Meanwhile, the comedy The Neighbors got a full season.

Does this news crush you? Or did Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue fail to live up to their promise?
