4.12.00 - "Wonderland" has been pulled from ABC's schedule, leaving six episodes un-aired. The show has not been officially cancelled, however. ABC has said that it will definitely be off the air at least through May sweeps, and any future after that is undetermined.
4.12.00 - Even though ABC has stretched its winning streak in television's primetime ratings to 15 weeks, "Wonderland" faltered last week against NBC's "ER." "Wonderland," along with CBS's "Falcone," had a combined viewership of barely more than half of the "ER" audience on Thursday. Of the 27 million people who had been watching ABC's "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" on Thursday, an eye-popping 20 million changed the channel rather than watch "Wonderland," Nielsen Media Research reported.

title as the network ratings leader for a 14th consecutive week and
smoothed the way for the premiere of the new series "Wonderland." The
new psychiatric hospital drama followed Thursday night's installment
of "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" and drew an average 13.2 million
viewers, ranking it 25th among programs for the week of March 27 to
April 2. That's less than half the number of viewers that watched the
quiz show that night - about 29 million - but "Wonderland" still
managed to boost ABC's showing in the time period by 17%. The three
editions of "Millionaire" ranked No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3 for the week.

3.29.00 - Just days before the premiere of "Wonderland," the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill (NAMI) is denouncing how the show portrays mentally ill people. According to Variety, NAMI criticized the show for depicting people with mental illnesses as "killers, crazies and freaks." In a letter to "Wonderland" producer Peter Berg, NAMI executive director Laurie Flynn wrote: "Imagine if the first network television series that featured African-American characters had been set in a welfare office." In the second episode of the drama, a schizophrenic man who killed several people in Times Square commits suicide. Flynn believes this story line could create an increased risk of suicides in ABC affiliate cities. NAMI has requested that ABC provide warnings to suicide hotlines around the country, air disclaimers before each episode; and show public service announcements "to offset the show's negative messages."
