TV: ABC’s ‘The River’ Has “Soft” Premiere

One thing about watching a new TV series is that you risk getting attached, only to have it canceled before the debut season ends. This is why I typically wait until the second season is announced to jump aboard (although I took the day one dive with “American Horror Story” and “The Walking Dead”).

THR writes that the two-hour premiere of ABC’s “The River,” which, while soft in its returns and declining every half hour, still topped last season’s comparable mid-season time slot entry, “Off The Map.”

“The River” pulled in a 2.4 among adults 18-49, with a 2.5 at 9:00 p.m. and a 2.2 at 10:00 p.m.., and gave the net its strongest showing in the time slot since the fall finale of “Dancing With the Stars.” ABC averaged a 2.4 among 18-49-ers for the night and 7.6 million viewers.

While off to a weak start, there’s still plenty of hope for the new series from Paranormal Activity creator Oren Peli — but it can just as easily capsize into the abyss…
