After ABC failed in the Thursday 8 PM EST time slot in the
fall of 2012 with adult drama series Last Resort, they made the decision
to go with Zero Hour. It failed miserably. It didnít help that fans and
critics complained that the show was convoluted and derivative, but scheduling
was definitely a major factor working against it. After only a handful of
episodes aired, ABC shuffled it to a summer burn-off run. It is available for
viewing through Amazon video streaming services.
