CBS has confirmed that it's pulling the rookie medical drama 'Three Rivers' off of its Sunday-night schedule, effective this week. The reason: bad ratings, according to the Live Feed.

CBS has confirmed that it's pulling the rookie medical drama 'Three Rivers' off of its Sunday-night schedule, effective this week. The reason: bad ratings, according to the Live Feed.

The series, which stars Alex O'Loughlin ('Moonlight') as the leader of a group of Pittsburgh-based transplant specialists, was unable to hold onto the audience from its lead-in, 'The Amazing Race.'

For O'Loughlin fans, this is the second time in two years that CBS has delivered disappointment. The network also canceled 'Moonlight' last year after similar ratings struggles.

Officially, the CBS announcement is not a cancellation, according to the report.

'Three Rivers' will complete production on its current 13-episode order, leaving five episodes in the bank. While CBS very well could might burn those off later this season, it seems quite unlikely that the medical drama will return for the next campaign.

In place of 'Three Rivers' on Sunday, CBS will air 'Cold Case' at 9PM., followed by repeats of 'Criminal Minds' and 'NCIS: Los Angeles.'
