Tv Season Info

This medical drama follows the team at Three Rivers Medical Center, an acclaimed transplant hospital, during their day-to-day challenges and duties. Lead surgeon Dr. Andy Yablonski (Alex O'Loughlin) is highly skilled but works too hard; Dr. Miranda Foster (Katherine Moennig) is following in her father's footsteps and trying to live up to his reputation; resident Dr. David Lee (Daniel Henney) is somewhat of a womanizer who is more interested in his romantic connections; newcomer Ryan Abbott (Christopher J. Hanke) is finding the demands of the job harder than he expected; and surgical supervisor Dr. Sophia Jordan (Alfre Woodard) is brilliant and experienced but struggles to keep everyone in line. A unique perspective is given, as each case is seen through the eyes of the surgical team, the recipient and the donor.

Critic Reviews for Three Rivers Season 1

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (9)

"Three Rivers" is just more TV gurney sprinting - the same material that drove "ER'' for 15 seasons.

Oct 4, 2009 | Full Review…

It's entirely possible that a great series could have this as its sole subject, but "Heartland" wasn't that show and neither is "Three Rivers."

Oct 12, 2009 | Full Review…

Maybe "Three Rivers" just needs its own transplant.

Oct 12, 2009 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

You can be reasonably certain a show may have problems if you can't decide whether it's a comedy or a drama.

Top Critic

The medical cliches, the bad acting, and the poor character development, however, may not even end up being the biggest problems for "Three Rivers."

Jun 15, 2018 | Full Review…

It's an adequate, conventional CBS-y medical drama.

Oct 12, 2009 | Full Review…

The show labors to achieve originality and entertain, even in this premiere episode.

Oct 12, 2009 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

The show appears to be a friendly study in hard work and good manners.

Oct 12, 2009 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Sometimes, it really is kinder just to pull the plug.

Oct 12, 2009 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

If it can hang on long enough, maybe "ER" or "St. Elsewhere" will donate a soul.
