ABC will not continue its paranormal mystery series.
May 11, 2012
ABC has cancelled freshman thriller The River after one season. The show premiered earlier this year as a mid-season replacement, airing a short 8-episode first season between February 7 and March 20. Unfortunately the series struggled ratings-wise, not garnering enough viewers for the network to continue the story next season.

The networks are ratings greedy! It's unfair that they expect a show to get and keep 10 million+ viewers! WTF? 5 - 7 Million is a lot of views, but it = a D report card rating. So, in the network world that's a cancelation aka 5 million viewers.
Networks they are lame.

ABC Sucks. My husband & I loved the River. wtf are they basing this on anyway? The River was a unique show that was unlike any other on tv. Put it back on and get rid of crappy shows like dancing with the stars. What a waste

Every freaking show I started watching get's cancelled and this was one of the one's I really liked. Only other scary show on tv is American Horror Story and watch it get cancelled as well.

Crazy!! The next episode could never come fast enough. All it would have taken was a few investment dollars to get the name out. Would be a SICK a movie too.

I can't believe it....another show I like cancelled! It seems like all shows I like to watch end up cancelled..what the heck!!!!!! I wonder if they take into account the views they get from places like Hulu. That is where I mainly watch my shows because I can't always watch them when they are scheduled!! I can't stand all those reality crap shows. And it looks like I am not alone by a few other posts!!

I don't understand how ABC can avoid advertising this show the way they advertise other shows and then cancel when it gets weak ratings. We have to know it exists to watch it! I watched from the beginning and when talking to friends and coworkers about it I learned that no one had heard of it.
I will admit I do watch some reality TV, namely American Idol, America's Got Talent, and the X Factor (and stuff on HGTV). I don't give a crap about various Housewives, doing anything with "stars", matchmaker shows, etc. If I want to see a bunch of underdressed people acting like idiots, I can go to the mall.
