Jeremy Piven Suggests It's Curtains for His CBS Crime Drama

CBS has canceled new TV show "Wisdom of the Crowd" after just 13 episodes. "Even with the ratings boost of late National Football League games, the drama, which follows a tech visionary's efforts to use crowd-sourcing to solve crimes, the series has been averaging just 8.8 million viewers per episode over its first nine broadcasts".

In "Wisdom of the Crowd", Piven plays an app developer in San Francisco who uses technology to solve his daughter's murder. It's unlikely he'll ever find the killer now. All unaired episodes will continue to run in the show's Sunday at 8 p.m. slot. "Proud of the work we did and we will Finish out our 13 episodes with full hearts!" the Emmy-winning actor tweeted.

The accusations cast a shadow over Piven and the ratings are hardly a strong argument for the show's continuation.

The decision comes following allegations by several women that the procedural drama star sexually harassed them on past projects.

"Thanks for all the love, going to miss it as well..." Filmmaker Amy Meador told Hollywood Life in October that Piven "lunged" at her at her home in the mid-'90s, and most recently, advertising executive Tiffany Bacon Scourby told People that the actor forced himself on her in 2003 in a New York City hotel room.

One of the women, Anastasia Taneie, told the outlet Piven forcefully groped her breasts and genitals in 2009 when she was working as an extra on the HBO series "Entourage". Freshman sitcom "Me, Myself and I" was canceled earlier this season.

CBS did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The polygraph examiner confirmed to BuzzFeed News that Piven passed the test.
