CBS announced today that Three Rivers, the Alex O’Loughlin drama about transplant surgeons, has been pulled from the schedule indefinitely and that reruns of NCIS: Los Angeles will take its place Sundays at 10 pm beginning Dec. 6. A CBS spokesman said the freshman drama will remain in production – the network ordered 13 episodes – but that no decision has been made about its future.
Averaging 8.4 million viewers, Three Rivers is currently ranked No. 45 among all primetime shows. The drama was one of the more anticipated shows on CBS this fall because it starred O’Loughlin, a fan favorite from the cult hit Moonlight.
