Jeremy Piven's Wisdom Of The Crowd To End After 13 Episodes

Wisdom of the Crowd, the CBS series starring Jeremy Piven, won't receive a full season pickup, Variety reports. 

The freshman drama originally scored a 13-episode order with the opportunity for additional episodes to be handed out, but the network has chosen to cut things short. All unaired episodes of Wisdom of the Crowd are to air on CBS in the show's regular Sunday at 8 p.m. time slot. While this move hasn't yet been made official, it effectively means that the series has been canceled. 

Not only has Wisdom of the Crowd floundered in ratings (pulling in a measly 1.0 rating in the crucial adults aged 18 to 49 category and roughly 7.4 million viewers per episode), but it has also been tainted by recent allegations involving Piven, who was recently accused of inappropriately touching two women who were working as extras on the HBO comedy Entourage. Piven starred as Hollywood agent Ari Gold on that series, which was successful during its eight-season run, and vehemently denied that any misconduct took place. 

"I unequivocally deny the appalling allegations being peddled about me," Piven said in a statement after Playboy Playmate Ariane Bellamar came forward. "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."

In Wisdom of the Crowd, Piven portrays Silicon Valley tech creative Jeffrey Tanner, the man who invents a crowdsourcing app to help solve his daughter's murder and change the way law enforcement officers solve crimes. The series, which is based on the Shira Hadad and Dror Mishani-created Israeli series of the same name, also features Richard T. Jones as Detective Tommy Cavanaugh, Natalia Tena as Sara Morton, Blake Lee as Josh Novak, Monica Potter as Alex Hale, and Jake Matthews as Tariq Bakari. Ted Humphrey, Adam Davidson, Avi Nir, Alon Shtruzman, Peter Traugott, Rachel Kaplan, Dror Mishani, and Shira Hadad executive produce the series. Wisdom of the Crowd currently sits at a 28 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
