The Bridge: CBS President Talks About Cancelled Show

The BridgeBy putting The Bridge on the least-watched night of television, it was clear that CBS didn’t have much faith in the Canadian TV show from the start. After just two weeks, three episodes, and low ratings, the series was pulled from the schedule.

At this week’s press tour, CBS president Nina Tassler explained, “The show wasn’t delivering the numbers that we needed… Generally, our summer strategy works, and I think we’ll continue to look at other ways to do other Canadian productions and other kinds of scripted shows during the summer.”

The Bridge continues to be popular in Canada and CTV has already ordered a second season.

Unfortunately, there’s no such luck for US viewers. CBS hasn’t announced any plans to air the remaining 10 episodes of season one or to release them online.

A CTV representative also tells us that there are currently no plans to release the series on DVD.

What do you think? Do you want to see the remaining episodes? Would you consider buying The Bridge on DVD?
