Jeremy Piven's 'Wisdom of the Crowd' Canceled Amid Sexual Harassment Allegations

The freshman crowd-sourced, crime-solving series hadn't quite found a crowd since premiering this fall.

Wisdom of the Crowd has failed to make a substantial impact on CBS, with the show averaging 7.4 million viewers per episode, making it the lowest-rated new show on the network, EW reports. Those numbers aren't great, particularly the one among the age-range beloved most by advertisers.

"Wisdom of the Crowd" stars Piven as a tech innovator who develops a crowdsourcing app to help solve his daughter's murder. It's unlikely he'll ever find the killer now.

"Wisdom of the Crowd" has also underperformed in the ratings so far this season. "Young Sheldon" and "SWAT" earned full-season orders, "9JKL" got a three-episode extension and "Me, Myself & I" was pulled after six episodes (though it will complete production on its 13-episode order). For now, the plan is for the remaining four to continue to air in the series' Sunday slot.

Piven has been accused of sexual harassment by several women and CBS is investigating the claims.

Piven has previously issued a statement that said in part, "I unequivocally deny the appalling allegations being peddled about me".
