Jeremy Piven suggests his show has been canceled

Jeremy Piven's new U.S. drama Wisdom of the Crowd has reportedly been cancelled following sexual assault allegations made against the actor. Four new episodes remain in the original series order and will air in their usual time slot of Sundays at 8 p.m. ET.

"Piven appeared to confirm the show's end in a tweet on Monday: ". sorry we don't get to continue with this great family we have created", he said in a Twitter post.

The network did not give a reason for the move, but the news comes just weeks after CBS told Deadline it was "looking into" sexual misconduct allegations against Piven. The show first aired in October.

The claim echoes one made by actress Ariane Bellamar, who also said Piven groped her while on the "Entourage" set.

Trump and Time magazine dispute Person of the Year plans
The best Trump tweets spawn joking imitations and the US President's tweet about Time magazine's Person of the Year did just that. And Oscar victor Patricia Arquette wrote in response to Trump's tweet that he could just print himself "another fake cover".

Piven has denied the allegations, telling BuzzFeed in a statement, "Let me be absolutely clear, this simply did not happen".

He has been accused of similar conduct by Longmire's Cassidy Freeman, and advertising executive Tiffany Bacon Scourby. "As a human being, I feel compassion for the victims of such acts, but I am perplexed as to the misdirection of anger with false accusations against me and hope they do not detract from the stories that should be heard". Freshman sitcom "Me, Myself and I" was canceled earlier this season.

One of the women, Anastasia Taneie, told the outlet Piven forcefully groped her breasts and genitals in 2009 when she was working as an extra on the HBO series "Entourage".
