The River Debuts To Weak Ratings!

| Filed under: Steven Spielberg

Well, it's a good thing that Steven Spielberg also has Smash!

The famous director is serving as exeutive producer on the new musical series, as well the midseason replacement ABC horror show The River, but apparently, the ratings for the latter's two-hour series premiere last night were less than stellar!

The series managed to garner around 8.2 million viewers and a 2.5 demo rating during the 9pm spot, but by the second part at 10pm, it was down to 6.8 and a 2.2!

Who knows, though? Maybe it just needs a few weeks to get word of mouth going and attract more of an audience!

That, or it will sink without a trace!

What do U think?? Did U like The River??

    the premise is SO far fetched & the acting is atrocious. THAT is why we all tuned out after the first hour!

    Ok the show stars a British Guy doing an American accent so bad that it sounds like he's choking on his own snot, and the scariest thing is they are battling an angry almond joy with a demon inside it, I mean WTF?

    The show definately needs some tweaking! But I'm watching next week to find out what the wife and blonde assistant are hiding. Oh, and the son seems too darn old for this part.

    I didn't think it was the worst show I've ever seen, but it definitely needs some help in the acting department. It was a little cheesier then I thought it would be.

    What @hollywoodnt said. The dialogue and acting were sooooo bad! This show couldn't figure out which movie it wanted to co-op most (Blair Witch? Anaconda? Event Horizon? Paranormal Activity? … LOST?). I won't be tuning in again.

    Ya the show has "holes" in it for sure..LOL..like sleeping in a grave yard with a bunch of creepy dolls hang en from a tree and then they hang around when the tied doll of the son keeps falling off the tree..RUN RUN RUN ATTACK OF THE DOLLS!

    Hollywoodnt had it right, poor premise, poor acting, and above all poor direction. I was actually yawning after the first 40 minutes and thats when I decided to check-out. Won't be following this storyline. I imagine most will come to the same conclusion on their own, a dog is a dog.
