CBS cancels 'Wisdom of the Crowd' amid Jeremy Piven sexual assault allegations

It is thought that the remaining episodes will continue to air.

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. Like so many other men in Hollywood, a collection of troubling sexual harassment allegations against Piven have surfaced.




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". On Twitter, reality star and former Playboy Playmate Ariane Bellamar accused Piven of groping her on two separate occasions, and actress Cassidy Freeman leveled a claim on Instagram that Piven acted inappropriately toward her. 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. I would never force myself on a woman.

In response, Piven said in a statement to Deadline, "I unequivocally deny the appalling allegations being peddled about me. I can not speak as to why a person would create a story like this". The series averaged 8.8 million viewers had fallen in viewership to just 7.4 million total viewers in the most recent episode with a 1.0 rating among viewers in the target 18-49 demographic.
