ABC Pulls the Plug on Drama Series

Oct 22, 2015  •  Post A Comment

ABC has made the decision not to move forward with a drama series, pulling the plug on the alien drama “The Whispers” after one season, The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports.

“The Whispers,” which starred Lily Rabe and Barry Sloane, aired 13 episodes this summer, pulling decent ratings.

“The series opened to respectable returns — 1.5 million among adults 18-49 in its Monday at 10 p.m. slot — and ranked as ABC’s highest-rated summer scripted premiere since the now-canceled Canadian import ‘Rookie Blue,'” THR notes. “With three days of delayed viewing, that jumped 53 percent to a 2.3 — becoming the highest-rated three-day gainer among summer debuts on any network since CBS’s ‘Under the Dome’ in 2013.”

The series reportedly remains a standout performer among DVR viewers.

  1. I’m fed up with ABC cancelling their new shows! The Whispers was one I loved and now it’s cancelled. I got interested in Blood & Oil on Sunday nights and they’re pulling the plug on that one already because of lower ratings! Instead of changing the night Blood & Oil airs to give it a chance…they put it up against Sunday night NFL and deem it a failure only a few episodes into the season. I won’t make the mistake of getting interested in an ABC drama any time in the near future because it’s pointless and frustrating!
