CBS Reduces ‘Numbers’ Order by Six Episodes

Nov 5, 2009  •  Post A Comment

CBS’ Friday night “Numbers” got its own numbers cut, from 22 episodes to 16, Variety reports.

CBS executives said the cut was made in order to schedule midseason shows sitting in wait, and doesn’t mean a final decision has been made on the show’s fate. “Flashpoint” may take over the time slot.

  1. Maybe the network realized that despite the theme of the show…the storylines are not, in fact, infinite.

  2. Numb3rs is the only show I never miss, and buy the series. It has all the ingredients of a good show: Adventure, love, a family, great detective work, etc. Flashpoint does not do that. Good grief. What’s the matter – not enough gore and predictable plots like those in the CSIs and the NCISs? I am really geting tired of those. “Earth to CBS!”
