CBS cancels 'Wisdom of the Crowd' amid Jeremy Piven sexual assault allegations

CBS cancels 'Wisdom of the Crowd' amid Jeremy Piven sexual assault allegations

"Proud of the work we did and we will Finish out our 13 episodes with full hearts!" he tweeted.

Jeremy Piven's CBS drama Wisdom of the Crowd will be canceled after 13 episodes, sources confirm.

The show has had low ratings for most of its first season with an average of 8.9 million viewers and a 1.3 rating among adults 18-49, according to THR.

Romelu Lukaku Facing No Disciplinary Action For Gaetan Bong Clash
Romelu Lukaku was caught on video clearly attempting to kick an opponent twice. And unfortunately not every player is the same. So Romelu, for me, [is] fantastic .

"Thanks for all the love, going to miss it as well".

CBS didn't immediately respond to a request for comment from HuffPost regarding the circumstances of the show's cancellation, but it's worth noting ― allegations against Piven aside ― the show wasn't exactly a smash hit. Last month, actress Ariane Bellamar accused Piven of groping her while they were on "Entourage". "It takes a great deal of courage for victims to come forward with their histories, and my hope is that the allegations about me that didn't happen, do not detract from stories that should be heard". A third accuser, advertising executive Tiffany Bacon Scourby, came forward on November 9, detailing a forced encounter with Piven in 2003.

On the same day, Piven posted a long statement on Twitter that said "the accusations against me are absolutely false and completely fabricated". He has denied all allegations and recently released polygraph test results in an attempt to prove his innocence. The only new show on CBS to see its tenure curbed was the underperforming Me, Myself and I., which was pulled from the schedule in early November.
