Missing: ABC Series Cancelled; No Season Two

Missing on ABC canceled, no season 2Becca Winstone’s chase is over. ABC has cancelled Missing, their Thursday night TV series, after one season and 10 episodes.

Starring Ashley Judd, Missing follows a former CIA Agent turned single mom as she searches for her missing son in Europe. The action show also stars Adriano Giannini, Nick Eversman, Cliff Curtis, Tereza Voriskova, and Sean Bean.

Missing got off to a disappointing start on March 15th, registering a 2.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 10.60 million viewers. It was in third place for the demo and second place in total viewership.

In week two, the numbers took a significant drop, to a 1.6 rating with 8.81 million. Over the next several weeks, Missing fell lower and lower. The most recent episode hit a new low with a 1.1 demo rating and 6.37 million total viewers.

How long should Missing have run?

Overall, Missing’s been averaging a 1.5 rating with 7.70 million viewers. If they had more episodes in the season, those averages would surely keep sinking lower.

On our ABC Ratings Report Card, which measures the relative demo success of TV shows on the network, Missing has a “D-” for a grade. Of the 22 scripted shows on the network this season, Missing ranks 21st — just above the already-cancelled Charlie’s Angels remake.

With low ratings and steep declines, it’s no wonder that ABC decided not to renew Missing for a second season.

The series finale airs next Thursday and will hopefully include enough closure to satisfy the viewers that stuck with it.

What do you think? Are you sorry to hear that Missing has been cancelled? Why do you think the show didn’t succeed? How long should have the show realistically lasted — one season, two, three or more?

I loved it. Should have a second season

So sorry Missing is to be cancelled. What is wrong with people. Stupid shows like Amazing Race, and Brother go on endlessly but a good show like Missing only lasts one season.

‘missing’ was among the fantastic series which left me with strong desire to know what will happen to becca (ashley judd) who real deserve to be starring in this show. i think promotion was poor as the results viewers rate drop day to day

I think the show ‘Missing’ with Ashley Judd was fantastic. Couldn’t get enough of it. Wish so much to find out what happened to Becca. I am so disappointed there was no more seasons. Really bummed.

How could they not have a 2nd season for Missing? After the way it
Ended. You leave people wondering what happened to Becca?

But yet and still these crappy shows keep getting renewed. Yeah makes a lot of
sense. As in none at all, thanks for nothing ABC.

If missing was on today it’s rating would be up there with covert affairs or higher, I loved season 1.


watkins August 20, 2014 at 9:17 pm

We need season 2, season 1 end with becca getting shot and taken out of her car, so who took her? Paul needs to be out looken for becca in season 2, then in season 3 michael could become a cia agent.

So sad to hear there will be no sn 2…just watched sn 1 the whole night for two days…kept me on the edge of my seat…lots of twists and turns in the drama, gripping suspense…we need sn 2 and even more pliz…..

Just watch the season1 , this week and really impressed by the show, pretty good quality if you compare it to the mentalist or criminal minds which the last few years have been disappointing. I think it is really sad that because the promotion has been so poor the show is canceled. Because there were intrigue, action and some really good actors. But like I think it is in most of the case now, it is not show business any more it is just business. You unfortunatly don’t look at the people but the numbers. Just sad for the cast and the people who work on the show, because the quality of work was very good, if you compared to what you’ve got now days.
