ABC Cancels 'Last Resort'

ABC has canceled its struggling freshman drama series, 'Last Resort' starring Andre Braughher and Scott Speedman after seven episodes.

The series premiere was watched by almost nearly 10 million viewers. The rest of the season dropped in viewership and the most recent episode only had a little over five million viewers which means it has lost half of its audience in seven episodes. With it airing on Thursdays at 8:00pm it has been dragging ABC's veteran drama series, 'Grey's Anatomy' which airs directly after it.

All 13 episodes will air in its original timeslot. No word on what will take its place but its looking like 'Wipeout.'

Here is a list of the last-five aired episodes:
Episode 03 - Eight Bells - October 11 - 6.89 million viewers
Episode 04 - Voluntold - October 18 - 7.06 million viewers
Episode 05 - Skeleton Crew - October 25 - 6.53 million viewers
Episode 06 - Another Fine Navy Day - November 8 - 5.98 million viewers
Episode 07 - Nuke it Out - November 15 - 5.68 million viewers

The now series finale will air sometime in Mid-January 2013.
