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 am really disappointed this show was cancelled. My husband and I have been waiting for it to return. What a shame as it really kept us on the edge of our seats.

I loved this show. Only problem for me was it started so late in the season the weather started getting better and was a lot going on in the spring.

Very disappointed this show has been cancelled. I don’t know why they didn’t try another night or a different time slot. Anyone who bothered to watch this show would have loved it.

This is crap. Finally a good show worth sitting down for and the ratings don’t agree. Best show since Lost and guess what they ended that also. Boo Boo Boo

Terrible. This was a really good show. It should have gone 2-3 seasons. I thought The Firm (also cancelled) had its ups and downs, but also should have gone for another season or two. Missing was consistently good

This show needed to stay on, it was incredible and was left with a cliff hanger

Of course it was cancelled, it was actually a decent show. People would rather watch stupid things like the Kardashians or Big Brother or any of those full of crap reality shows. Too bad, I really liked it.

They always cancel the good shows, and continue to air those stupid ass adult cartoons. Who are they polling for these ratings anyway, I know I sure have never been asked if I like a particular show. I really liked this show and was looking forward to the next season. So sad it was cancelled.
