'Miracles,' 'Veritas' No More at Abc By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)
CHICAGO (thefutoncritic.com) -- ABC has canceled its freshman drama "Miracles" after its disastrous showing earlier this week. Repeats of "The Practice" are set to fill in for the series beginning April 7.
The news comes as no surprise for the Skeet Ulrich led series as the drama has declined in the key 18-49 demographic in each of its six airings, culminating in its dismal 1.8 rating this past Monday, literally half its debut numbers (3.6/9). In total the series averaged 6.5 million viewers and a 2.5/6 in adults 18-49. It is not known if the six remaining produced episodes will air this summer.
Additionally, the network confirmed its hiatused drama "Veritas: The Quest" has been canceled. The axing of both series leaves only "Dragnet" left from the seven new dramas ABC launched this season ("Push, Nevada," "MDs," "That Was Then" and "Dinotopia" were the others).
"Miracles" came from Touchstone TV and Spyglass Entertainment with Roger Birnbaum, Gary Barber and David Greenwalt as executive producers.
