That wouldn't be a surprise, since the ratings for both are pretty bad (but worse for "DTtB"). However, the first line of that story said "With ABC‘s Tuesday comedy block gone in mid-March," so it appears that there wasn't going to be a good timeslot for those shows past February anyway, so this is a way to get them all aired without having to push them to the summer.

I guess I was only one of a few select that watched 666. I feel like I've been thrown under the bus making us wait till Summer. A big middle finger to ABC!

I was watching it but stopped when I heard it was cancelled. I have kept up with Last Resort though since they said they would resolve it.

I wonder if these will continue to air in Canada in January. If so, I can finish and be done. I'll forget about it by summer.

Perhaps not a concern in Canada, but ABC has a history of forgetting about these promises as well.

Recently?

I lose track, but name a few. I remember they held good with Life On Mars. Flash Forward too.

Did they wrap Flash Forward or just dump the last episodes online?

Anybody remember if all the episodes of Traveller aired?

Both shows finished their orders on the network. Traveller ended with a cliffhanger, but that was a writer decision, not because the network didn't air all the episodes.

But did FF reach any kind of "explanation of what happened" type ending?

I can't remember if I still have any episodes left to watch or not, or if I missed recording any.

I like watching the Canadian versions of shows anyway. Recently the president's speech screwed up a recording of the Simpsons, so I got a copy from Canada. I forgot how nice it is to watch a show without a bunch of moving ads and crap all over the bottom of the screen throughout the entire show.

I don't think they explained it, but they did manage to avoid the calamity of a second Blackout by making sure everyone was prepared for it before it hit, so the main "mission" of season one was accomplished.

There was also a cliffhanger with regards to whether or not Agent Stabler survived the Blackout.

FYI,

Episodes 10 and 11 of '666' are now available via magical means.

It might be a little difficult finding them on usenet indexing sites because the uploader named the files with random numbers. Many indexers are not handling them properly. You might have to search multiple indexers to find them.

For those that are interested, episodes 12 and 13 of '666' are available via magical means. So far, only in SD.

According to the cancellation notice, yes, but they didn't say when. Probably in the summer.

Anyone else watch the end of 666 Park Avenue? Spoilers, just in case...
Spoiler:
I wonder how much of the episode was changed when it was announced that the show was cancelled - especially as the episode's title was "Lazarus, Part 1".

I wouldn't be surprised if the only change was the whole "One Year Later" thing at the end; otherwise, why brick up the playwright and his wife without having them "absorbed" into the hotel walls as well? I have a feeling they would have escaped somehow at the start of Season 2.

"New Order"? Really?

* SPOILER *
Of the cancelled shows, this is the only one I've resumed watching. But I'm a few episodes behind, so I don't want to click your spoiler yet. I'm kind of on the fence as to whether I should bail. Did it have an ending, or does it just stop? If there's some sort of closure I'll keep watching.

There is some sort of closure so you're not left completely hanging.

I thought this was "not bad" and better than series like Revolution. I'm not broken up it's been canceled, but was happy to see it for a year.

Interesting,
I found that since they returned for the burn-off that I'm less interested in 666, on the other hand Zero Hour has just continued to ratchet up the batsh*t crazy ration and I'm having a blast with it.

Yeah, Zero Hour (IMO) got better the first episode back, and just kept getting better the rest of the way. [VERY general comments on how the rest of the series shapes up; no specific spoilers]
Spoiler:
It kind of fell apart at the very end, but until then it got to be a really fun, interesting show.


666 was just what it always was. And I suppose if they'd kept ZH on the air, the people it had already lost weren't coming back anyway and there would be little chance of gaining new audience. I can't even say it deserved a better shot, because it really did seem just silly in those initial episodes, and that was a fatal flaw. But I wish they had found a way to make it work straight out of the gate.

Avoiding the whole thread in case of spoilers but did Last Resort wrap up properly. I'd like to watch it if it did.

It felt really rushed (obviously I guess ) but yes, it did.
