It was an okay start for Ashley Judd and company. Former occupant Wipeout had been attracting a 1.5 in the demo and it’s of course important to remember that the debut was opposite American Idol. In the fall, Charlie’s Angels also debuted in the 8pm timeslot with a 2.1 in the demo and was cancelled not too long afterward because the numbers dwindled downward. Will the same happen to Missing? Stay tuned.

The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

    What a big mistake to cancel this series….. We absolutely looked forward
    to seeing this every week. Need it back. Yes, I think we learned from it also.
    I”m not a comedy type person for shows to watch. Can’t believe it didn’t
    continue.
    Bring it back.

    I really enjoyed watching missing,it was so
    Intense, the suspense, the actors and actresses
    were great. I don’t know why the networks
    would have stupid reality shows and these
    other new shows coming out but cancel Missing.
    I was so looking forward to Season 2

      You cancel Missing and it was really good never miss it, Yet you keep these shows on that have no merit to them shame on you. Bring it back, because alot of people don’t want to start watching a show then you cancel it and ABC is good for that.
