Year to Year Ratings: Changes 666 Park Avenue vs Pan Am - THIS MAKES ME HAPPY

 "-15.79% - 666 Park Avenue (vs. Pan Am)"

Yep. It's the little things that make me happy. Pan Am was a great show and nobody can convince me otherwise. It had a lovely setting, superb acting, convincing character development and compelling stories. Yet it was cancelled after 13 episodes. Don't be surprised when I am doing the happy dance upon the grave of 666 Park Avenue.

It was a very small consolation that Pan Am had a very fitting and rewarding final episode as they rang in the new year of 1964. One year (and a half!) before I was born. I could have happily watched Pan Am for seasons to come, but ABC thought they could do better. Nice gambles were taken first on GCB (which suffered the title curse, but I otherwise enjoyed immensely) and now 666. The latter certainly fits the bill, doesn't it?

If you want to relive just how much I loved Pan Am, revist my reviews at TV Fanatic. You can do that right HERE.
