Fall TV Scorecard: Which shows are returning? Which aren't?
Last Resort, which stars Andre Braugher and Scott Speedman as crew members of a renegade nuclear submarine, debuted in September to 9.31 million viewers and a 2.2 demo rating, just a tenth higher in the demo than Charlie's Angels, which failed to deliver last season in the same timeslot. Its most recent episode tied a series low of 5.8 million with 1.3 rating.
666 Park Avenue also consistently fell in the ratings, bowing to 7 million and a 2.2, well below Pan Am's 11 million and 3.1 in the timeslot last fall. The series stars Dave Annable and Rachael Taylor as an innocent Midwestern couple who get hired as resident managers of a spooky New York apartment building owned by Gavin Doran (Terry O'Quinn), who may or may not be the devil. Sunday's episode matched a series low of 4 million with 1.3.
