Disney's ABC dumps Donny Osmond's "Dream Vote"
Los Angeles - March 30, 2007
Well, this is one Disney "Dream" campaign that certainly didn't work out. ABC Television dumps Donny Osmond's "The Great American Dream Vote" after two episodes which tanked in the ratings. The show ranked fifth in the Wednesday ratings war, and being slotted up against "Idol" is not exactly helpful at building a viewership base for a reality show.
Mr. Osmond is, of course, no stranger to ABC Television where he was the co-host of a popular TV program in the 70's... Or the Walt Disney Company when he provided, among other performances, the voice for the character Shang in the animated feature, Mulan... But don't worry about Mr. Osmond's TV Career, as he still hosts the British version of the game show "Pyramid."
