What a bummer. CBS cancelled Doubt after just two episodes. 🙁 Hopefully we’ll get to see the rest of the season in some way!
CBS is removing all Doubt from its primetime lineup.
The Katherine Heigl legal drama has been yanked off the schedule after just two airings, TVLine has learned. In its place, CBS will air Season 2 of Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, beginning Wednesday, March 8 at 10/9c. (Next Wednesday, a Bull rerun will air in Doubt‘s former timeslot.)
With an all-star cast including Heigl, Laverne Cox and Dule Hill, Doubt was one of the higher-profile shows debuting this midseason. But its Feb. 16 premiere only drew 5.3 million total viewers and a 0.8 rating, placing below timeslot predecessor Code Black‘s sophomore average. (TVLine readers gave the legal sudser’s launch an average grade of “C+.”)
In Week 2, it dropped 25 percent, to 4 mil and a 0.6. Beyond Borders, meanwhile, averaged a solid 6 million viewers and around a 1.0 rating with its last few outings last spring.
