Warner Bros. Agrees To License Eight TV Series To Netflix

Warner Bros. Agrees To License Eight TV Series To Netflix
This is the clearest sign yet of the thaw in the companies’ once-frosty relationship — and could intensify industry concerns about whether Netflix will cannibalize ad-supported TV. Warner Bros. Television Group has agreed to license complete previous seasons of serialized dramas including Revolution, Political Animals, Longmire, 666 Park Avenue — and The Following, which debuts this month on Fox. Netflix also landed Chuck, Fringe and The West Wing. The companies say that in addition to these eight shows, Warner Bros may also make available “potential future shows.” Warner reserved the right to sell the programs into traditional syndication windows, via electronic sell-through services and on a catch-up basis for recently aired episodes. But Netflix has exclusive rights to subscription streaming. Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos calls it an “unprecedented agreement” that “is making the production economics right for the continued creation of the kind of compelling serialized dramas and thrillers that our members love.

Happy Endings, Don’t Trust the B Move to Sundays
Odd news from the ABC scheduling department today: Happy Endings and Don't Trust the B will be replacing 666 Park Avenue on Sunday nights come January 6. Park's fate was a done deal, but Sunday night sitcoms? It's a world gone mad! The move means that Happy Endings and B will air twice a week for a few weeks, both in this substitute Sunday spot and in their regular Tuesday homes. This is what we call a bad sign, kids. Get those "save Happy Endings" petitions ready.

Exclusive: Last Resort, 666 Park Avenue Tweaking Final Episodes to Give Fans Closure
Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue will not leave viewers hanging.

Despite ABC pulling the plug on the freshman dramas last week, the brains behind both shows tell TVLine that they were given enough time to turn their respective swan songs into series finales.

“We have time to tweak,” confirms Last Resort creator Shawn Ryan, adding that Episode 13 will indeed function as a full-fledged series finale.

666 exec producers David Wilcox and Matt Miller, meanwhile, tease that their Sunday spookfest “is building to a powerful and surprising series finale, where all your questions will be answered.

ABC Cancels Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue

ABC Cancels Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue
ABC has done what the U.S. Armed Forces could not: It sunk the Colorado.

The network cancelled Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue Friday, our sister site Deadline reports.

Both freshman dramas had struggled to maintain an audience. Thursday’s Last Resort, which reportedly was an important factor in whether or not the series would receive a full-season pick-up, saw a slight ratings drop to 5.8 million total viewers and a 1.3 demo rating.

Similarly, last Sunday’s 666 Park earned only 4 mil/1.3, matching the previous episode’s series low.

ABC cancels '666,' 'Last Resort'

ABC cancels '666,' 'Last Resort'
It’s a sad day for fans of two ambitious ABC dramas that came up short in the ratings this fall: Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue will soon end their runs.

ABC will continue airing the original 13-episode orders for both shows, but neither will receive a full-season pickup.

For 666, the writing has been on the wall for weeks. The Sunday-night supernatural drama starring Terry O’Quinn has been shedding its Revenge lead-in and been on a downward spiral since its debut.

For Last Resort, the news is somewhat surprising. Though its ratings matched the performance of 666, Shawn Ryan’s

'Mentalist' ratings improve

'Mentalist' ratings improve
The Mentalist hasn’t had an easy time on Sunday nights this fall. Moved from its longtime Thursday perch, Patrick Jane & Co. recently fell to series lows, not helped by CBS’ ever-shifting time zones on Sundays due to the network’s sports coverage early in the evening. Last night, The Mentalist (10.6 million, 2.0) may have jumped 25 percent to beat ABC’s 666 Park Ave. (4.9 million, 1.5), though once again the morning numbers are a bit more approximate than usual thanks to sports overrun in a few markets. The latest 666 was down 12 percent.

Another bit of good news for a broadcast show: ABC’s Revenge (8.2 million,

'666 Park Ave.' ratings getting scary

'666 Park Ave.' ratings getting scary
ABC’s drama block took a hit in the ratings Sunday night, but none of the numbers were more frightening than the second week of the network’s supernatural soap 666 Park Avenue.

Week two of 666 (5.1 million viewers, 1.7 preliminary adults 18-49 rating) was down 19 percent (and, yes, there’s a lot of numbers in that sentence). But the new show’s more popular lead-ins slipped too. Once Upon a Time (9.6 million, 3.3) was off 15 percent and Revenge (8.3 million, 2.6) fell 19 percent.

CBS’ 10 p.m. rival for 666, The Mentalist (8.7 million, 1.6), potentially dropped even more than the ABC show, but these CBS numbers are all slightly off kilter in these preliminary ratings due to football overrun early in the evening. It looks like Amazing Race (9.8 million, 2.5) and Good Wife (9 million, 1.7) were relatively unchanged this week.

'Once Upon a Time' return delivers ratings magic

'Once Upon a Time' return delivers ratings magic
ABC’s Sunday drama block launched to strong ratings overall, but newcomer 666 Park Ave. opened surprisingly weak.

The season two return of Once Upon a Time (11 million viewers, 3.8 adults 18-49 demo) was last night’s top-rated entertainment show and returned down only 5 percent from last year’s high flying series premiere. (See our interview with the showrunners about last night’s episode).

Revenge (9.5 million, 3.2), in its new time period, did well too — down a mere tenth of a point from its Wednesday night series debut last fall and tying last year’s Desperate Housewives premiere in this slot. This rating is firmly better than the second half of Revenge’s season, suggesting the move to Sunday paid off. Airing against CBS’ Good Wife (9.8 million, 1.8), which declined 18 percent, Revenge firmly got the upper hand in the adult demo.

How '666 Park Ave.' will be like 'The Shining'

How '666 Park Ave.' will be like 'The Shining'
There’s a long and rocky history of TV producers trying to successfully adapt Stephen King novels. Could a new series capture the horror master’s sensibility while having nothing to do with his actual work?

ABC’s upcoming horror soap 666 Park Ave. (see the show’s curiously sexy marketing poster here) isn’t drawn from any of King’s material (it’s based on a novel with the same title by Gabriella Pierce), but producers admit the author’s work was a heavy influence on the show. “It’s absolutely Stephen King influenced,” said executive producer David Wilcox told TV critics Friday.
