CBS has dropped the Katherine Heigl rookie drama, Doubt, from its Wednesday 10 p.m. ET lineup after just two episodes, writes Deadline.com.
The show, which features Heigl as an attorney who falls in love with her client, an accused murderer, was a failure with both critics and viewers. Deadline notes that the second episode generated just four million viewers.
While CBS did not say Doubt was officially cancelled, it seems unlikely the network will ever air the remaining episodes, considering the dismal ratings for the first two.
In Doubt’s place, CBS next week will air a repeat of Bull while the rookie spinoff, Criminal Minds: Beyond Border, will take over the spot after that.
For Heigl, Doubt is yet another television failure. The actress also starred in NBC’s State of Affair, which was cancelled in 2015 after one season, and she left Grey’s Anatomy amid whispers that she was difficult to work with.
