New US drama Doubt, starring Katherine Heigl has been dropped by CBS after just two episodes.
The plot sees Heigl as a brilliant attorney who falls for her client, an altruistic pediatric surgeon (Steven Pasquale), accused of murdering his girlfriend.
The series debuted to 5.31 million total viewers, in live-plus-same day numbers, before falling to 4.03 million viewers a weeks later – but that was a drop of 45% from its Criminal Minds lead-in.
It’s not good news for the former Grey’s Anatomy star whose previous series, State of Affairs, also ended at 13 episodes.
Nor is it good news for TEN, which announced the series for Australian viewers as part of its 2017 line-up.
Whether it will now be shafted to a multichannel remains to be seen.
