Ten's Wisdom of the Crowd axed following allegations against star

Ten drama Wisdom of the Crowd has been axed by US network CBS amid sexual misconduct allegations against its star Jeremy Piven.

The series, which stars Piven as a tech guru who launches an app to help find his daughter's murderer, was effectively ended by CBS this week in the wake of poor ratings and several misconduct claims against Piven.

The network ruled out any additional episodes to the show's initial 13-episode order.

Piven, 52, has denied allegations from four women, which largely stem back to his time on HBO sitcom Entourage, calling them "absolutely false and completely fabricated", while CBS said it was "looking into the matter".

CBS noted it would finish airing the remaining episodes of the show's initial run.

Ten did not respond to queries regarding local broadcast plans for the series.

Piven, who last week shared results from a polygraph test aimed at proving his innocence against the allegations, took to Twitter on Wednesday to thank the show's fans for their support.

"Proud of the work we did and we will finish out our 13 episodes with full hearts," he wrote.

The series - one of Ten's high-profile imports from its new mothership CBS, and flagged as part of their international schedule for the new year at their recent upfronts - has underperformed for the network.

Airing in Sunday's primetime 8.30pm slot, the show has averaged around 260,000 viewers per episode (five-city metro) since premiering on November 5, and failed to crack the top 20 programs on Sunday.
