A Bride Is Shot on 'Three Rivers'Your wedding day is supposed to be the best day of your life -- hypothetically, that is. But then there's always the possibility of a terrible speech by the best man, leering uncles, drunken bridesmaids, and so on and so forth. And then there's always the chance that your bride might get shot at the altar.

[Spoiler alert.]

Is CBS about to give Alex O'Loughlin another show?

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 18th 2010 4:00PM
Alex O'LoughlinWe told you a while back about a new version of Hawaii Five-0 that CBS had in the works. Now it looks like they might have their leading man: a vampire doctor!

Alex O'Loughlin, to be exact, who starred in two flops on CBS recently, the vampire drama Moonlight and the medical drama Three Rivers. The network seems to love the guy and they want to give him another show to star in, and that show might be the remake of the Hawaii-based cop show. Sources will only say that "talks are ongoing."

What do you think of this casting? Whoever they get for the show, I only have one request: please keep the original theme song.

CBS exec: NBC's Leno experiment didn't work - TCA Report

by Joel Keller, posted Jan 10th 2010 10:39AM
Nina Tassler at the Winter 2010 TCA CBS exec sessionIt was a long, long, lonnnng first official TCA day yesterday, with CBS, Showtime, and the CW trotting out their newest and finest in front of the critics, followed by the epic Survivor anniversary party Bob mentioned the other day. I'll spill out some highlights later on. But I wanted to quickly start with CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler's very confident executive session.

Why was she so confident? Shows that are often winning their time periods helps. But she also seems to be in a "told ya so" mood about NBC and its Leno / Conan mess. In her opening remarks, for instance, she mentioned how good the freshman slate of shows was doing on every network... except NBC. During the Q&A, she said that the other networks "fared very well during this experimental phase for NBC."

CBS exec: Three Rivers is cancelled - TCA Report

by Joel Keller, posted Jan 9th 2010 12:51PM
Three RiversHowdy from Pasadena! I'm here covering the Winter TCA tour, and the first bit of news has already come up. During her executive session, CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler was asked by the throng of reporters here if the Alex O'Loughlin medical drama Three Rivers was cancelled. Her response?

"You know what? Yes."

She went on to say that she didn't want to beat around the bush on it; the show just took longer to develop than they hoped. She was heartened by the stories she heard from transplant patients who appreciated the show's message, but that wasn't enough to save the show.

In the reporter scrum after her press conference, Tassler told me that she didn't anticipate as many angry letters from O'Loughlin fans as she got after she cancelled Moonlight, but judging from some of the notes we got here, I doubt that.

Somebody call 911.

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.'

Three Rivers will spend December on the shelf

by Allison Waldman, posted Dec 1st 2009 10:02AM
alex_oloughlin_cbsYou knew it was a bad sign in November when CBS decided to flip flop Cold Case and Three Rivers to test whether it was the time slots that were dictating the sliding ratings of the Sunday night dramas.

The results were hardly conclusive, but consistently drawing less than 2.0 in the demographics has doomed Three Rivers. CBS has pulled Three Rivers off the schedule for December. Merry Christmas, Alex O'Loughlin lovers.

This is the first step to cancellation and anyone who tells you otherwise is blowing smoke. Despite a big star in the center, Three Rivers is an earnest medical drama that's just not catching on with viewers. CBS will complete the 13-episode order and then kiss the show bye-bye.

Will a Time Swap With 'Cold Case' Save CBS' 'Three Rivers'?

by Elizabeth Chan, posted Nov 17th 2009 1:50PM
The cast of 'Three Rivers' Can CBS transplant some hope into its Sunday night lineup?

The network is about to find out after announcing a one-time scheduling swap between 'Three Rivers' and 'Cold Case.' The swap will take place next week, according to the Live Feed.

'Three Rivers'' current 9PM time slot makes it the beneficiary of a traditionally strong lead-in from 'The Amazing Race.' But so far this season, 'Rivers' has failed to 'Race''s audience, and is also being blamed for offering a weak lead-in for 'Cold Case.'

There is speculation that CBS is deciding whether or not to pull the plug on 'Three Rivers' altogether -- that is, unless the network can find the heart to order more episodes after this last-ditch programming attempt.

CBS's Sunday flip-flop: Cold Case for Three Rivers

by Allison Waldman, posted Nov 17th 2009 11:50AM
cold_case_lilySundays have always been a good night for CBS. It's been a good day for years, thanks to the NFL. Traditionally, the football games bleed right into prime time, which commences at seven o'clock because of 60 Minutes. Even in the days when CBS broadcast Sunday night movies, the network has done well on that night of the week.

However, the advent of the NBC Football Night in America has put a dent in CBS's strength. Also the ABC lineup and Fox's animation domination are no slouches either. So, CBS is going to do something to bolster Sundays. Three Rivers and Cold Case will switch time slots.

TV Shows Most Likely to Be Canceled: We Made the Odds, Now Place Your Bets

by Bryan Enk, posted Nov 9th 2009 3:11PM

It seems like just yesterday we were greeting the lineup of the 2009-2010 television season; every show was equal, and no show had a better chance at success than any other. What a difference a few weeks make, as now some series are already looking down the barrel of a shotgun, ready to be canceled with barely a few episodes out the gate. Television is a cutthroat world indeed -- here we look at the series that are currently on thin ice, and the odds that they'll come out the other side.

Don't agree with our odds? Let us know!

ABC:

'Ugly Betty'
It wasn't long ago that 'Ugly Betty' had its supporters in droves, proclaiming its brilliance to the heavens. Now, alas, the show seems to have been abandoned, allegedly returning this season only so it has enough episodes in the vault to qualify for syndication. Which it does, so there!
Odds of Cancellation: 2 to 1

Now you can know when CBS sports coverage is going to run long

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 26th 2009 1:03PM
CBSIt's something we see almost every Sunday during the fall/winter: CBS football coverage runs long, which means that 60 Minutes starts late, which means The Amazing Race starts late, which means Three Rivers starts late, which means Cold Case starts late, which means local news starts late. Sometimes it means that one of the shows won't get shown at all, which is what happened to Cold Case a couple of weeks ago.

Now you can be alerted to when the shows are going to be delayed because of football (or tennis or golf). You can sign up for CBS Eye Alerts, and they'll e-mail/text you when sports coverage run over.

This won't make you any happier, but at least you'll know it's coming. Though I think you can turn on CBS and figure it out for yourself.
