CBS has passed on a back-nine order for Jeremy Piven procedural crime drama, Wisdom of the Crowd.

Per The Hollywood Reporter, "Wisdom of the Crowd" was the least-watched series on the network's Sunday lineup, pulling in around 8.9 million viewers among adults aged 18-49.

TV Line reports that the 13 episodes already in the can will air, but the move by CBS is effectively a cancellation.

CBS did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

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

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". Cassidy Freeman accused Piven of "predatory behavior", and Tiffany Bacon Scourby claimed Piven forced her to engage in a sexual act at a NY hotel in 2003.

On the same day, Piven posted a long statement on Twitter that said "the accusations against me are absolutely false and completely fabricated".

"I would never force myself on a woman", Piven wrote in an earlier tweet. "Period", he wrote on November 9. "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". The tests show that Piven "showed no reactions indicative of deception", and passed on his answers to all questions.
