No Back Order For 'Wisdom Of The Crowd'
2 weeks ago
Things aren't looking good for new CBS drama Wisdom of the Crowd. Reports are out this afternoon that the network has declined to order any additional episodes of the Jeremy Piven series, essentially indicating that it has been cancelled.
One of three new dramas in the CBS fall lineup, the hour-long show premiered early last month but has not fared overly well at 8:00pm on Sunday nights, regularly losing out to its time slot competition. Critically, reviews were generally not very favorable either, resulting in an overall lack of buzz for the freshman entry.
Making matters worse, Piven was one of the recent high-profile names to be accused of sexual harassment by a past co-star, allegations of which the network stated they were "looking into". Since the news broke late last month, CBS hasn't commented further, though Piven denied the allegations.
