LAST RESORT (2012) has been Canceled by ABC: Andre Braugher

Last Resort Canceled. Last Resort (2012) has been canceled by ABC. This comes as a big surprise will respect to the quality of Last Resort, its acting, action, and storyline, evident by Last Resort (2012): Season 1, Episode 1: Captain. ABC is granting Last Resort the courtesy of its initial 13 episode first season, even though ABC had received two additional TV scripts for the season. ABC decided to cancel Last Resort due to “underwhelming ratings”. ABC is granting fans of the fledgling TV series its remaining episodes “in [the shows] original time slot of Thursdays at 8pm.”

On the ratings of Last Resort and the Thursday night time slot:

Last Resort, which was averaging over 7 million viewers in its Thursday night lead-off spot. The time slot isn’t a particularly friendly one, as THR reports, since Missing, My Generation and the Charlie’s Angels reboot have all met their ends there in recent years.

On what TV show might replace Last Resort and fill its time slot:

ABC has yet to announce its mid-season line-up and, as such, has not singled out replacements for the vacated time slots. Their new mid-season comedies include How to Live with Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life) and Family Tools, while dramas Zero Hour, Mistresses and Red Widow are also on the docket. In addition to The Neighbors, freshman drama Nashville has also been ordered to a full season. Scandal also managed a full-season order, while ABC has picked up additional scripts for  Reba McEntire’s Malibu Country and Tim Allen’s Last Man Standing.

    While “Last Resort” WAS a little out there, it was still good. It’s one of the few programs that I watch every week. I CANT be alone. I think they made a mistake.

    I stated this on my FB page, “I. haven’t seen a show on TV that captured me this way since 24.” But they will keep all that ‘reality tv’ crap shwing! Now just when they’ve got me again, they want to cancel ANOTHER HIT! I’m gonna stop watching TV altogether!
