* ScrewedByTheNetwork: {{ABC}} has a lengthy history of failure on Thursday nights at 8pm[[note]]except for ''UglyBetty'', ''30+ years'' of failure, to be exact[[/note]], a timeslot dominated in the fall by ''TheBigBangTheory'' and, to a (much) lesser extent, ''TheXFactor''. So, naturally, they placed ''Last Resort'' in that very slot. The ratings were about as low as one would expect, and only got lower as the season progressed. After finishing last in the timeslot[[note]]and that includes TheCW; the fact that TheVampireDiaries is one of two shows on the whole network capable of beating even the dregs of the Big Four series in the ratings speaks to how low both that net and Last Resort are rated[[/note]] twice in a row, [[http://www.deadline.com/2012/11/last-resort-666-park-ave-cancelled-abc/ ABC finally announced the show's cancellation]].
