Ready for “The River”? Check out Mo Ryan’s “River” review, she breaks it down into reasons why you should and shouldn’t watch.

You have to give “The River” (9 p.m. EST Tuesday, ABC) credit for living up to its name.

It does indeed take place on a river, and its premise is, like a big body of water, pretty easy to follow: Emmet Cole (Bruce Greenwood), the world-renowned host of a popular nature program, has gone missing in the Amazon, and his family is trying to find him. Spooky hijinks ensue.

Some thoughts from yours truly (Chris) and my fellow AOL TV staffers on the new ABC pilots. These aren’t reviews, just first reactions. Find out what we liked, thought was “eh” and the ones that didn’t float our boat.

Also, look at how fabulous the ‘Good Christian Belles’ cast is.
