The premise for The Great American Dream Vote was that the audience would choose which contestant deserved to have their wishes and fantasies “magically” fulfilled. It could have been a good deal for contestants, but ended up being not so good for ABC. After only two episodes, the Donny Osmond-hosted reality show was making their audience disappear.
The sneak preview episode (which followed the Tuesday edition of Dancing with the Stars) lost over 11 million from its lead-in, leaving fewer than six million viewers. The second night was even worse, attracting less than 4.6 million. As a result, ABC has pulled Dream Vote from their schedule effective immediately. There are no plans to air the three remaining episodes.
