Fourth Freshman Series Bites the Dust

CBS decided the fate of two more shows said to be “on the bubble,” or having an uncertain future, on Tuesday.

The program aired Wednesdays at 10:00pm, immediately following the series it spun off from, CRIMINAL MINDS.  But ratings for the sequel just weren’t strong enough to warrant a second season.

The news follows CBS’s announcement on Monday that three other first-year series were also canceled.

The Network is expected to announce its full fall season plan to prospective advertisers on Wednesday.
