CBS has determined the fate of several of its shows with back orders handed out to two and one quite visibly NOT getting such a handout. Though networks don’t officially ‘cancel’ things until they have to, that lack of a back order is effectively the same thing.
The network has picked up its sophomore Monday comedies, the Judd Hirsch-led “Superior Donuts” and Matt LeBlanc-led “Man with a Plan” for full seasons.
At the same time, the network has opted not to pick up additional episodes of the Jeremy Piven-led crime drama “Wisdom of the Crowd”.which is slated to wrap production on its thirteen-episode original order in mid-December.
For now, the plan is for the remaining four to continue to air in the series’ Sunday slot. The decision has been being complicated by an investigation CBS recently launched into sexual harassment allegations against Piven.
CBS has already given full season orders to “S.W.A.T.,” “SEAL Team” & “Young Sheldon,” has effectively canned “Me, Myself & I,” and is still undecided on “9JKL”.
