32 Bubble Shows — Which Will Survive?
"The River" (ABC)
Wrapped March 20; aired Tuesdays at 9 PM
The Good News: Word is that producers are trying to find a new home for the show -- and it's a lot less expensive than "Terra Nova," which also sought out (but failed) to score an afterlife elsewhere after Fox canceled it.
The Bad News: When it comes to dramas that work on ABC, it's all about targeting women: "Grey's Anatomy," "Revenge," "Castle," "Desperate Housewives," "Private Practice," "GCB." Horror? Not so much. And those viewers who did sample the show's premiere, about an expedition to find a lost explorer, quickly rejected the experimental shaky-cam found-footage mystery. Just under 4 million tuned in to the finale.
