Fall TV Shows in Trouble
666 Park Avenue
“666 Park Avenue” (ABC)
ABC had high hopes for this new supernatural thriller, giving it the prime Sundays-at-10 time slot following established hits “Once Upon a Time” and “Revenge.” But “Park Avenue” failed to live up to its lofty location: Its premiere dipped sharply from its “Revenge” lead-in, and attracted 29 percent fewer young adults than “Pan Am” did last year in the same slot. (Ouch.) Based on that precedent, we don’t think the new residents at The Drake should unpack their things just yet.
Prognosis: On the market by Christmas. That Sunday night real estate is just too valuable to waste on a show that’s underperforming.
