If your television show revolves around a search for someone missing, it helps to have Ashley Judd looking.
That’s ABC’s lesson from Nielsen’s television ratings. Last Thursday’s premiere of the network drama “Missing,” starring Judd as a former CIA agent trying to find a teenage son who disappeared in Rome, landed among the 10 most popular series last week with 10.6 million viewers. The strong sampling came despite “Missing” competing directly with Fox’s “American Idol.”
Meanwhile, ABC’s newish drama “The River,” involving a family’s hunt for a naturalist missing in the Amazon region, landed at No. 73 on Nielsen’s list with an audience of 4.1 million. The man’s family does not include Ashley Judd.
