CBS Cancels Jeremy Piven Show Amid Sexual Assault Allegations

Actor Jeremy Piven's show

Piven confirmed the show was being canceled via his Twitter account Monday afternoon.

Actually, scratch that, his CBS crime procedural Wisdom of the Crowd has been cancelled amidst allegations of sexual harassment surrounding the actor.

"Wanted to thanks all of you guys for supporting us at #WisdomoftheCrowd sorry we don't get to continue with this great family we have created".

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.

According to EW, recent allegations of sexual assault by Piven likely led to the cancellation.

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".

Then on November 1, Longmire actress Cassidy Freeman responded to Piven's denial of Bellamar's claims via Instagram, alleging that "whether or not her accusations are true, the TRUTH is I know you".

Days later, advertising executive Tiffany Bacon Scourby told People that Piven sexually assaulted her while the two were awaiting a publicist in his hotel room in NY in 2003, according to the November 9 report. An NFL push has still left Wisdom with an average 1.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 8.9 million viewers. 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.
