[News]Daniel Henney's "Three Rivers" cancelled in U.S.


Was the warmth of the drama not enough to overcome its low ratings? The cold reality of television viewership ratings was harsh enough to cut short the show starring attractive actors Alex O'Loughlin and Daniel Henney. With critics calling the show dull and viewers not tuning in to watch, CBS finally announced last weekend that it was cancelling the show "Three Rivers". According to an overseas media outlet, a source claimed that the show has been put on halt, but with no clear prospects as to whether it will air again in the future. CBS's announcement virtually means a cancellation of the show.

"Three Rivers", which premiered on October 14, is a show about the lives of organ donors at a Pennsylvania transplant hospital that drew much publicity with the casting of Korean-American actor Daniel Henney as a pancreas transplant surgeon. But the show received little attention after the pilot episode aired and had seen its ratings decline ever since. Of the 13 episodes that have already been produced so far, only eight have aired on TV. CBS has asked the show's producers to finish production but is making no guarantees about airing the remaining episodes. The current time slot for "Three Rivers" will be replaced by re-runs of other successful shows including the popular spin-off series "NCIS: L.A.", "Cold Case" and "Criminal Minds".
