October Road: ABC Changes Plans for Drama

Bryan Greenberg of October RoadAs previously reported, ABC had planned on running just four of its six episodes of October Road. Though the series shows evidence of losing steam, ABC has changed their plans.

October Road debuted on March 15th to 13.93 million viewers. The second episode dropped 16% and the third dropped to less than 8.3 million. Despite this decline, the series has been attracting a healthy percentage of the desirable 18-49 demographic.

ABC had planned to air only four of the six episodes of October Road this season. If the series was renewed then the remaining two episodes would air as part of season two. ABC has now decided to air the remaining two episodes this season.

October Road will take a one week break while a double dose of sitcom Notes from the Underbelly debuts on April 12th. Underbelly will then move to Wednesday nights beginning April 18th. The two episodes of October Road will air on April 19th and 26th. No word on what will occupy the timeslot after that.

A final decision on an October Road second season will likely be announced in mid-May at the network upfronts. Stay tuned! TV Series Finale home page

    what would it take to bring it back? It seems there is quite a bit of support for bringing it back, so there must be a way. Love the show!

    October Road is a great show and the viewers probably wouldn’t have dropped off if it weren’t so many months in between the “Seasons”!! I and lots of other I know religously watched OR, I want to know how everything turns out…PLEASE DON’T LEAVE US HANGING, IT’S NOT FAIR!!!
