Jeremy Piven's new USA drama Wisdom of the Crowd has reportedly been cancelled following sexual assault allegations made against the actor. "Even with the ratings boost of late National Football League games, the drama, which follows a tech visionary's efforts to use crowd-sourcing to solve crimes, the series has been averaging just 8.8 million viewers per episode over its first nine broadcasts". Those numbers aren't great, particularly the one among the age-range beloved most by advertisers.
"Wisdom of the Crowd" stars Piven as a tech innovator who develops a crowdsourcing app to help solve his daughter's murder. It's unlikely he'll ever find the killer now. The rest of the already-produced 13 episodes will continue to air at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT Sundays.
The crime drama is slated to wrap production on its 13-episode original order in mid-December. Piven vehemently dismissed the allegations, but has since been hit with further reports of inappropriate sexual behaviour by three other women, including another Entourage extra - all of which he has denied.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to announce ENGAGEMENT in special TV interview
Beloved Prince Harry was seen at the door of the shop Heidi Klein, which features a wide selection of beachwear. Rumors have been flying for months now that Prince Harry was preparing to pop the question to Meghan Markle .
On the same day, Piven posted a long statement on Twitter that said "the accusations against me are absolutely false and completely fabricated". Meanor claimed Piven pinned her down at her Los Angeles home in 1995 and Taneie accused him of grabbing her breast and genitals in 2009, during the making of Entourage. "I can not speak as to why a person would create a story like this". Freshman sitcom "Me, Myself and I" was canceled earlier this season.
Amy Meador also spoke to BuzzFeed News and alleged that Piven had assaulted her at her then-home in Laurel Canyon in 1995. The tests show that Piven "showed no reactions indicative of deception", and passed on his answers to all questions.
Piven did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment.
