ABC’s Life With Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows debuted Sunday with the highest number of total viewers of any movie on network television this season, reports Inside.com. Assuming young-adult viewers turn out in similar numbers for Monday’s conclusion, ABC has the possibility of ending up in third place in the February sweeps among adults 18-49. Still, experts say that the Garland story, produced by gay producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, brings only a little life back into the decaying genre of network miniseries.
