“666 Park Avenue” is still canceled, but it’s not done airing just yet. ABC is pairing the supernatural soap starring Terry O’Quinn and Vanessa Williams with another failed drama, “Zero Hour,” on Saturdays this summer for a two-hour block of burn-off theater.
The “Zero Hour” return was previously announced and begins June 15 with a two-hour premiere. “666” returns the following week, on June 22, when “Zero” airs in its regular 8 p.m. ET timeslot leading into the remaining episodes of “666” at 9 p.m. ET.
But fans shouldn’t get their hopes up about seeing the shows back on ABC’s schedule. There’s no chance ABC will revive either of these series and the Saturday night timeslots all but guarantee abysmal ratings. At least devoted viewers will have the opportunity to see the complete runs of each show.
