Thanks a Lot, Witch Hunters: Jeremy Piven's Show Is Cancelled

Thanks a Lot, Witch Hunters: Jeremy Piven's Show Is Cancelled

The network will air the remainder of its original 13-episode order, but it will not produce any new episodes, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Piven, who previously starred on HBO's Entourage is facing allegations of sexual assault from at least five women.

Wisdom was cancelled Monday after CBS opted not to pick up the show's back nine.

The show failed to pick up steam even paired with Sunday Night Football, earning just 8.9 million viewers in its latest numbers.

Previously CBS said they were "looking into" the allegations against their star, who played a Silicon Valley tech innovator who used crowdsourcing to help solve crimes in the drama series.

Ariane Bellamar took to Twitter on October 30 to accuse Piven of groping her breasts and buttocks twice on the set of the HBO show.

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. "As a human being, I feel compassion for the victims of such acts, but I am perplexed as to the misdirection of anger with false accusations against me and hope they do not detract from the stories that should be heard". Actress Anastasia Taneie revealed to BuzzFeed that Piven groped her breast and genitals as he forcefully pushed her against a wall when she was working as an extra on Entourage. I would never force myself on a woman.
