666 Park Avenue

I hate the title. I hate that it's on ABC. I love everything else I've heard about it. Oh... and Jack and Locke are officially reunited.

Premieres Sunday, Sept. 30, at 10 p.m.

What it's about: Lost's Terry O'Quinn gets all mysterious on us again as Gavin Doran, the owner of The Drake, a place where all your dreams can come true ... for a price. This supernatural soap follows an idealistic young couple from the Midwest who take on the job as the building's managers. Jane Van Veen (Rachael Taylor) and Henry Martin (Dave Annable) quickly find themselves drawn into the seductive world of The Drake, which will put them at the center of an epic battle of good versus evil. Vanessa Williams also stars as Doran's equally mysterious wife. From creator David Wilcox (Fringe, Life on Mars), Matt Miller (Chuck), Alex Graves (Fringe), Gina Girolamo (The Secret Circle) and Leslie Morgenstein (The Vampire Diaries).

What Terry O'Quinn says about 666 Park Avenue: "If you ask me if I'm the Devil, I have no idea. I don't know where [the show] might go, because the possibilities seem to be limitless."

Our take: The pilot is filled with rich visuals, an intriguing premise and, of course, Terry O'Quinn and Vanessa Williams. Initially we get loads of mythology and plenty of chilling moments. There also seems to be a touch of Lost in the walls of The Drake, so we're hopeful. Still, the series is going to have to offer more than a "deal with the devil" every episode, and we're not sure about the soap opera aspect of things. But the biggest concern is whether this series will last long enough to give us any answers at all.
Here's a preview:

Re: 666 Park Avenue

The premiere was everything I hoped it would be. This will most certainly be in my rotation.

Re: 666 Park Avenue

I love where this show is headed. Interesting wrinkle in the way this last episode ended.

Re: 666 Park Avenue

It doesn't look good for one of my favorite new shows:

666 Park Avenue (ABC)
4.82 million viewers/1.5/4 share



Quote:
666 Park Avenue dropped again this week, and things just keep looking worse. This time it finished dead last among the night's drama, and finished second to last on the night behind only America's Funniest Home Videos, a show that's probably a good bit less expensive to produce. We're only three episodes in, but this show's days could already be numbered.
Bummer.

Re: 666 Park Avenue

The network has ordered a script to make their decision on the next season.

This is only slightly better than last week's news.

Hurricane Sandy damaged the sets to 666 Park Avenue.



Do I smell nail in the coffin?

Re: 666 Park Avenue

It really blows that this show is going to get cancelled just as it is hitting its stride. This last episode was top notch.

Re: 666 Park Avenue

And there you have it.



Quote:
666 Park Avenue dropped to a new low Sunday night, coming in dead last in viewers among non-animated shows for the night, and finishing flat-out last in the ratings among all shows. It even got beat by a rerun of The Simpsons. We could be saying goodbye to this one soon.
It was just getting good.

Only new drama I really enjoyed. Garbage shows like Nashville will get picked up for another season, but actual decent shows like Last Resort get canned.


Aggravating.

Re: 666 Park Avenue

Remaining episodes pushed back to Summer.

ABC is pulling cancelled freshman drama 666 Park Ave, which was to continue in the Sunday 10 PM time slot until it finishes its 13-episode run. The remaining episodes of the series will now air in the summer.
Will the hurting never cease?
