CBS Essentially Cancels Wisdom of the Crowd

For any fans of the show, which has aired nine episodes so far, the story will likely somewhat wrap up before it fulfills its 13-episode order.

Somewhat ironic, as it is the wisdom of the crowd that has refused to separate this man's alleged actions from his art.

The accusations cast a shadow over Piven and the ratings are hardly a strong argument for the show's continuation. "Proud of the work we did", he said, adding that the episodes will be finished "with full hearts".

Piven stars in the series as a tech guru who creates a crowd-sourcing app to help solve crimes, including his daughter's killing. Its latest live-plus-3 averages only give it a 1.3 rating among adults 18-49 and 8.9 million viewers.

Trump, Putin discuss Syria in lengthy phone call
Trump and Putin spoke informally several times earlier this month when they attended a summit in Vietnam. Trump and Putin have had some success on Syria, brokering a ceasefire in southwest Syria last summer.


The Wisdom decision comes as Piven faces multiple allegations of sexual misconduct, with the most recent coming last week.

Shortly after Bellamar accused Piven, a representative for CBS said the network was aware of the accusation and was "looking into the matter".

Piven confirmed the show was being canceled via his Twitter account Monday afternoon. Piven denied Scourby's claims in a statement to People: "Let me be absolutely clear, this simply did not happen". I would never force myself on a woman. Meanor claimed Piven pinned her down at her Los Angeles home in 1995 and Taneie accused him of grabbing her breast and genitals in 2009, during the making of Entourage.
