CBS’ Sunday night medical drama, Three Rivers, is destined to be cancelled here in the US but at least the show is still on the air.
The network hasn’t announced any plans to pull the Alex O’Loughlin series yet, perhaps in part due to the actor’s active fanbase from his days on Moonlight. Apparently people from the actor’s home land of Australia aren’t as sentimental. Three Rivers has already been cancelled there.
Three Rivers was pulled from the schedule of Australia’s TEN network after just one airing.
The premiere ran on a Wednesday night and attracted fewer than 500,000 viewers, putting it in fourth place for the timeslot. The show was replaced on the schedule by an NCIS repeat the following week.
TEN has yet to indicate any interest in returning Three Rivers to the schedule.
What do you think? Why isn’t this show working? Bad storylines, poor acting, a flawed premise, or something else?
