ABC Cancels 'The River'

ABC has canceled its freshman thriller 'The River' after a very short eight episode first season.

'The River' was never a huge hit for ABC, it's series premiere was watched by over seven million viewers, but the following week it dropped to four million. The season had only eight episodes and every episode lost viewership and ratings which isn't good for a TV series that cost millions of dollars to shoot all over the Amazon.

Here is the break down of the last five aired episodes:
Episode 04 - A Better Man - February 21 - 4.80 million viewers
Episode 05 - Peaches - February 28 - 4.04 million viewers
Episode 06 - Doctor Emmet Cole - March 6 - 4.21 million viewers
Episode 07 - The Experiment - March 13 - 4.09 million viewers
Episode 08 - Row, Row, Row Your Boat - March 20 - 3.99 million viewers
