CBS Officially Cancels Drama

May 25, 2016  •  Post A Comment

Despite having delayed-viewing numbers that were strong, CBS has canceled one of its dramas.

Writes Lesley Goldberg for The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed blog, “Days after CBS president Glenn Geller told reporters that producers were trying to find a home for the second season of [‘Limitless’], showrunner Craig Sweeny took to Twitter to announce the fate of his series: ‘I’m truly sad to report that #Limitless will not continue on any platform. Thanks so much to everyone who watched,’ he wrote.’

The article adds, “The freshman drama averaged a 2.4 rating among adults 18-49 with impressive DVR numbers factored in, but its live-plus-same-day stats (1.4) placed it well behind that of Tuesday night counterparts ‘NCIS’ (2.2) and ‘NCIS: New Orleans’ (1.8). With all three ‘NCIS’ shows returning as well as cop dramas ‘Training Day’ and ‘MacGyver,’ CBS has opted to see if it can improve on ‘Limitless’’ performance.

“Limitless” was based on the 2011 feature film of the same name.






  2. This breaks my heart. Surely another service or network would want to rescue this show. It was so creative.
