CBS medical drama “Three Rivers” starring Alex O’Loughlin has been cancelled. The series will complete production on all 13 episodes from the show’s original order, but there’s been no word on whether they will air.
TNT has also cancelled legal drama “Raising the Bar” after second season ratings dropped to half of their first season numbers.
The series finale of the long running USA Network series pulled in 9.4 million viewers, making it the largest audience to date for a drama series on basic cable, topping the third-season finale of TNT’s “The Closer” in September 2007 which pulled in 9.2 million viewers.
The record helped push new series “White Collar” up to ratings highs of 5.55 million viewers, the highest rating for the timeslot on the network since the series debut of “Psych” several years ago.
Ex-“24” regular Elisha Cuthbert will play a recurring role on the procedural with her first episode airing in February.
Cuthbert plays Maxine Denver, a strong and successful Chicago professional who is forced to put her skepticism of “amateur detectives” aside when The Forgotten Network begins investigating a case close to home.
“CSI” creator/showrunner is setting up the procedural drama at CBS about the online world reports Variety.
The story centers on a newly formed government agency that fights the modern onslaught of Internet- and technology-driven offenses – basically think a TV version of the first act of 2008 Diane Lane thriller “Untraceable”.
