KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Jeremy Piven, who starred on "Wisdom of the Crowd" as a tech guru who launches a crowd-sourcing app to solve crimes, confirmed the cancellation on Twitter late Monday night.

"Wanted to thanks all of you guys for supporting us at #WisdomoftheCrowd sorry we don't get to continue with this great family we have created", Piven wrote. The remainder of Wisdom of the Crowd's 13 episodes will finish out in the show's current timeslot.

According toTV Line, Wisdom of the Crowd will be canceled after 13 episodes, with network CBS reportedly dropping plans to order a second season of the show.

The decision comes just days after a fourth woman accused Piven of sexual assault. 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. The most recent episode had 7.8 million viewers but only a 1.1 rating among adults 18-49 - that's enough to barely save some shows, but presumably not enough to justify keeping it going for CBS given the controversy. Both comedies average less than 6.5 million viewers, but don't have controversy surrounding them like with Piven. I would never force myself on a woman.

Piven has denied the allegations, telling BuzzFeed in a statement, "Let me be absolutely clear, this simply did not happen".
