Vanessa Williams Hits The Unemployment Line Again! ABC Pulls The Plug On ‘666’
Okay, that’s a bit of an exaggeration because you certainly won’t see Vanessa on anybody’s unemployment line.
But unfortunately, she is out of a tv gig. After only about a month and a half, ABC has decided to put her drama 666 Park Avenue on ice. The network originally ordered 13 episodes (that’s half of a full season) and while they’re going to let them play out, there will be no more after that. The interesting thing is that ABC is still holding on to the show by saying it will be in consideration for next season but much like last season’s flop, Pan Am, it isn’t expected to actually return. The season opened with a 2.1 rating but have plummeted ever since.
Don’t cry for Vanessa though because in case you haven’t noticed, she always keeps a job. Next year, she’ll be in Tyler Perry’s The Marriage Counselor. I’m sure we’ll see her on Broadway again very soon and she’s always singing. Besides, it seems as though ABC has become her television home, so to speak, as she also had roles on Ugly Betty and Desperate Housewives. It wouldn’t come as a surprise at all if we see her back on there next season on another show.
