CBS Passes on Additional Episodes of Jeremy Piven Series

Four new episodes remain in the original series order and will air in their usual time slot of Sundays at 8 p.m. ET.

The show has had low ratings for most of its first season with an average of 8.9 million viewers and a 1.3 rating among adults 18-49, according to THR.

The decision comes just days after a fourth woman accused Piven of sexual assault.

"Longmire" actress Cassidy Freeman accused of Piven of engaging in "predatory behavior", in an Instagram post. "I can not speak as to why a person would create a story like this". Piven wrote on his Twitter account, adding, "Thanks for all the love, going to miss it as well". Filmmaker Amy Meador told Hollywood Life in October that Piven "lunged" at her at her home in the mid-'90s, and most recently, advertising executive Tiffany Bacon Scourby told People that the actor forced himself on her in 2003 in a New York City hotel room. "I hope we can give people the benefit of a doubt before we rush to judgment". 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.

Meador said that after exchanging numbers at a coffee shop, and setting up a date with Piven, the actor stood her up. The tests show that Piven "showed no reactions indicative of deception", and passed on his answers to all questions.

CBS didn't immediately respond to a request for comment from HuffPost regarding the circumstances of the show's cancellation, but it's worth noting ― allegations against Piven aside ― the show wasn't exactly a smash hit.
