Real Estate on TV
It looks like 666 Park Avenue learned the hard way that the only thing harder to find than a sprawling rent-controlled apartment was renewal for another 13 episodes.
The supernatural evening soap opera, which was shameless when it came to the inaccurate portrayal of Manhattan real estate, has been evicted from ABC’s Sunday night lineup for a lackluster performance, according to Variety.
There’s nothing scarier than failing to attract viewers.
Recently, we’ve started watching 666 Park, mostly because we like to fantasize that we live rent free in a spacious two-bedroom on Park Avenue. Also, once in a while, when we’re feeling lazy, we like to fantasize that a hard day of work would involve a little light reading at the library, mulling for 30 minutes or so over some blueprints, visiting the basement 10 to 15 times for no real reason whatsoever and a leisurely lunch at a very expensive restaurant.
