ABC debunks ‘Miracles,’ drops drama

Show is 6th freshman series axed by net this season

Apparently, ABC’s “Miracles” needed one.

The Alphabet web has yanked the drama off its schedule for the remainder of the season, opting to air repeat segs of “The Practice” on Mondays at 10 p.m. for the time being.

ABC had high hopes for “Miracles,” which stars Skeet Ulrich as a man who investigates unexplained phenomena. Webheads premiered the show the day after the Super Bowl and moved “The Practice” to Mondays as a lead-in, angering that show’s David E. Kelley in the process.

Even though the show was retooled from its original dark, religious undertones, “Miracles” had trouble finding an audience from the beginning. After six airings, it averaged a 2.5 rating/6 share among adults 18-49 and 6.5 million viewers overall, according to Nielsen.

Cancellation was a foregone conclusion after this Monday, when the show posted a dismal 1.8 rating in adults 18-49. “Miracles” had declined every week since its debut (3.6/9).

Show now reps the sixth freshman drama axed by ABC this season, following “Push, Nevada,” “MDs,” “That Was Then,” “Dinotopia” and “Veritas: The Quest.” Of all its new hourlong scripted fare, just “Dragnet” remains.

“Miracles” came from Touchstone TV and Spyglass Entertainment. Roger Birnbaum, Gary Barber and David Greenwalt exec produced.
