ABC Cancels "Last Resort," "666 Park Avenue"; CBS Yanks "Partners"

ABC/MARIO PEREZ(NEW YORK) -- It was a black Friday last week for three new TV series.

ABC cancelled the Andre Braugher drama Last Resort, which airs on Thursday night and follows a nuclear submarine captain and his crew.

In addition, it pulled the plug on the Sunday-night supernatural drama 666 Park Avenue, which stars Terry O'Quinn and Vanessa Williams.

Both shows will remain on TV until their episode order runs out.

CBS is also making a change to its primetime lineup.  It cancelled its freshman comedy Partners, which revolved around two best friends/business partners -- one straight, one gay.

Partners' Monday-night time slot will be filled by comedy reruns for the time being.

Vanessa Williams: ABC's "666 Park Avenue" Is 'Not Blood and Guts'

ABC/ERIC LIEBOWITZ(NEW YORK) -- Actress Vanessa Williams was among the stars at the New York City premiere Monday night of ABC's new thriller, 666 Park Avenue.

The 49-year-old actress told ABC News Radio that viewers shouldn't be scared by the horror genre title.  She says the new series, which debuts this Sunday, is more suspense than scary.

"Don't let the horror label fool you or scare you away," Williams said.  "There are some unfortunate things that happen on a weekly basis at The Drake, but it's not blood and guts.  It's not going to make you not be able to sleep at night."

The Drake is the fictional luxury building around which 666 Park Avenue is centered -- a building that contains many secrets and evil spirits.  So why would anyone stay there? 

Actor Terry O'Quinn, who plays Gavin Doran, the Drake's mysterious landlord, tells ABC News Radio, "They're seduced by the glamour of the place and it's a great address...I would probably jump at the chance to live in The Drake."

ABC's 666 Park Avenue premieres Sunday, Sept. 30, at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
