It looks like Secret Millionaire has been cancelled — again. The feel-good reality show ran on FOX for a single season back in December 2008. The network cancelled it after few people watched the half-dozen episodes.
ABC brought the series back in 2011 and found much better ratings — averaging a 2.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 10.7 million viewers.
Season three wasn’t nearly as successful however, averaging a mere 1.3 in the demo and 5.03 million. ABC had ordered 13 episodes but pulled the show off the schedule prematurely last August, leaving six installments on the shelf.
The network never got around to airing the leftovers and left the series out of their upcoming summer and fall plans. Clips are still available for viewing on the ABC site but it certainly doesn’t look like Secret Millionaire is coming back to primetime.
Hopefully they’ll release the extra episodes at some points so the fans can see them.
What do you think? Did you like Secret Millionaire? Are you sorry that ABC has dropped the show?
