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 the show, interesting thrill ride, that a shame! Too much class for US, the brain-dead would rather watch Honey Boo-Boo!

MISSING WAS THE BEST SHOW ON TV. IT SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN CANCELLED. IT NEEDED NO IMPROVEMENT. THE ACTING WAS EXCELLENT, THE SCRIPT WAS EXCELLENT. IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN AIRED FOR THE NEXT HUNDRED YEARS AT LEAST. PLEASE BRING IT BACK ON THE AIR. FOR THE PEOPLE THAT DON”T ENJOY WATCHING IT TURN TO ANOTHER CHANNEL, THEN THE REST OF US WILL NOT BE DEPRIVED OF THE EXCELLENT SHOW……..

Just finished watching the season one and it was amazing! We looked forward to watching it every night, it always kept our attention! I am SHOCKED, and disgusted to hear that there is not going to be a season two! How can you just leave the end of the first season like that………..That hardly seems fair to the faithful viewers that loved the action and suspense of the show! PLEASE give us season two!!!!!

I throughly enjoyed Missing. Many of us watch it ON Demand. I like it better because less interruptions. That should be taken in account. It was one of the best action series. Ashley Judd is a great actress. Bring it back.

I have been waiting and waiting for the series to pick back up! I finally just now googled the show only to find out it’s been canceled!! I just cannot believe it! This was the best tv series I have seen in many years! I believe ABC made a huge mistake in this one!!! I would absolutely love to see it come back.

I can’t believe it’s off the air. It was by far the best suspense TV show I had ever seen. It was like watching an action packed movie every week. I am extremely disappointed to find out it was cancelled.
