After Pulling the Plug on ‘Reckless,’ CBS Cancels Another Show

CBS has canceled its second show within a week. As previously reported, “Reckless” was canceled last week.

CBS has also canceled “Unforgettable,” again.

Writes Lesley Goldberg in The Hollywood Reporter: “This marks the second time the procedural from Sony Pictures Television has gotten the ax. CBS passed on bringing the series back for a sophomore run following its standard in-season run in 2011-12. The network then teamed with SPT to revive the series for a short 13-episode second season and moved the drama to the typically lower-rated summer period, where the series was able to score solid returns.

“After the drama ranked as Sunday’s top scripted drama in total viewers last summer, CBS renewed it for a third run for another summer return. Season three ended in September with an average of 6 million total viewers, down about 2.2 million year-over-year.”

Adds Variety, “Sony Pictures TV is likely to shop the property to potential cable buyers.”
