ABC finally has canceled Wednesday-night medical drama MDssafter the
show couldn't hold the lead-in of either of the network's high-rated reality shows,
The Bachelor or last week's Extreme Makeover special.
In its most recent showing, MDs brought in only 4.7 million viewers
and a 2.0 rating/5 share in adults 18 through 49, even though Extreme
Makeover, in which participants get plastic surgery, scored 13.2 million
viewers and a 5.8 rating/14 share in adults 18 through 49, according to Nielsen Media Research.
Next week, ABC will repeat Extreme Makeover in the slot. Then,
starting Jan. 8, it will air a celebrity version of The Mole Wednesdays
at 10 p.m., following The Bachelorette at 9 p.m.
