    In case anyone here tried this show during it's short run and found it promising, you can join others looking to find it a new home. This is probably a wasted effort, but stranger things have happened. Those involved with this program include the extremely talented David Greenwalt (Buffy, Angel, Profit) and Richard Hatem (Strange Luck, The Mothman Prophecies).

    Networks now claim that they're looking for "water-cooler" shows, shows that build interest and cause people to come back week after week, yet they won't give programs that build that sort of support--character-driven, deeply plotted programs (hm, programs like Alias), time to take root and get the foothold that they need. What happened? ABC claimed that they would allow Miracles (and Veritas, for that matter) to air several weeks unmolested, but instead it was repeatedly promoted only to be pre-empted. First, understandably, it was pre-empted for war coverage (although CBS and NBC went ahead with their lineups), and later it was promoted then inexplicably pre-empted for re-runs of The Practice.

    What I don't understand is why ABC wastes its money developing a program that it obviously doesn't want to put any kind of push behind. Does ABC enjoy having its shows fail?

    hmm i can't say i liked miracles that much, i wasn't comfortable with it, but i did love veritas. any word on how to make that come back::):? yeah i agree with you...i always tuned in to try to watch veritas but something else was always on. that's just not cool. however, knowing what little returns abc is getting for the network sweetheart alias (see thread about shows getting booted) i may understand why they cancelled the shows. maybe it was to save alias. if that's the case, i can do without the shows. whatever it takes to save my alias.

    altho i only saw one or two shows of miracles (because everytime i tried to find it, it was on), it was a great show!

    I haven't seen anything about an effort for Veritas, but that doesn't mean there isn't one.

    After having many of my Tv shows cancelled, and I mean a lot, this is by far the one I'm furious at. I watched every episode, and I loved it. I think there were 5. And that's it. If it weren't for Alias, I would boycott ABC. This was such a creepy show! Unfortunately, there hasn't been any progress in saving Miracles, as I'm sure would be the same with Alias, as unfortunate as it is.

    Believe it or not, hope seems to spring eternal, for a fan push still exists for this series, hopeless though it may be. See http://miracleshq.com/.

    *bump*

    I've heard that this is getting a DVD release, thanks to the huge push from fans. Its not a replacement for the loss of the show itself, but at the very least fans will be able to own the series. :D

    There is news at the following link:
