That means 6 more episode of Last Resort which might end up being just about perfect considering the subject. Would have really been a stretch to see it go beyond one season. Though many here would say it's gone on long enough already.

Never saw 666 - all the episodes are still on the TiVo. Was planning on doing a marathon but not sure whether I will bother now or not. Any advice on whether it's still worth watching or not?

I like Last Resort, never seen 666. Hopefully it will at least "end."

I deleted all off 666 off my Tivo this morning. I still have them on my laptop, but I think I'll just kill it.

Ya I hope Last Resort gets some sort of ending, not great show, but it's been ok.

The article said that ABC is retaining the option to pick up either show for next season, which would be hard to do if a show "ended."

The only way I can see either show having a firm conclusion is if its producers can somehow convince ABC that having an ending would increase its chances of being considered a miniseries for Emmy purposes (it has happened).

We dropped Last Resort after the second or third episode, I think. Just didn't grab either of us.

Wow, I just deleted "Last Resort" off my DVR last night. I think I got to episode 3 and just fell behind...

News is true. No Back 9 for #LastResort. We will film and and air all 13 episodes. We're going to give you no-holds barred kick-ass ending.


I am so sorry to see this show die. It was one of my favorite new shows.

I have been watching 666 as well, but it didn't hook me like Last Resort.

I will finish out both of them, especially Last Resort based on the promise above...

I'm behind an episode or two of Last Resort but I'm really digging the show. Sorry to see it not get a pick up.

I wonder if the superstorm damage to the set of 666 was a factor in the decision to cancel it?

I think the fact that it kinda sucked might be a factor.

But what do I know...I am still watching waiting for it to unsuck...

Not the first time Braugher's been in something (Gideon's Crossing) which was too good to be a hit on network TV.

With him being a big part of why it was good.

Didn't RTFA, but what do they have to fill the timeslots with? Seems like this year, there are slim pickings for new shows.

Last Resort had promise, but, honestly the last ep or two started to lose me...debating whether to even stick with it to the end.

Ratings sucked, nothing to do with the storm.

They have Red Widow and Zero Hour to replace these two.

I'm sensing network interference in the last two episodes.
It's too bad, I thought that Last Resort had a lot of potential and it's probably worth it just for Andre Braugher alone.

I also liked 666 Park Avenue.
I applaud that they are trying to do something different and Terry O'Quinn is great in it.

I was going to kill the two eps of Last Resort I have on the TiVo but I think I'll watch all 13 we get since it looks like we'll get an ending.

I'll watch Last Resort to the end, since they will actually get to wrap it up.

666 is boring to me, but my wife likes it.

Revolution would be better if it made sense. Why would bullets fire but the engine in an old car or generator wouldn't? How does no power make a spark fail to happen? Dumb.

Boy, Shawn Ryan has had a run of bad luck for a talented guy. Obviously The Shield ran for a long time and ended on his terms, but his followups Chicago Code and Last Resort, both decent shows with real promise, didn't even get a full season. And then there's Terriers, one of TV's best shows right from the start, that didn't get a second season.

Of the three, the cancellation of Terriers was the biggest shame.

That show was flat out awesome.
