The new drama is pulled from the schedule.
February 24, 2017
After just two weeks on the air, CBS has pulled the plug on its mid-season drama Doubt. The freshman series is the latest starring vehicle for Katherine Heigl, who has yet to find a long-term gig on broadcast television since her 5-year Emmy-winning turn on Grey's Anatomy.
Doubt is a legal drama that starred Heigl as a top attorney who starts to fall for one of her clients who may or may not be guilty of murdering his past girlfriend. Premiering February 15 in the 10:00pm time slot, the series struggled out of the gate with its first two episodes losing in the ratings to both Chicago PD and Match Game by a considerable margin.
With such low viewership, the network opted to cut its losses and has removed the show from its schedule effective immediately. Replacing Doubt next week will be a rerun of Bull. Starting the following Wednesday, March 8, Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders will fill CBS' 10:00pm time slot.
As for the unaired episodes of Doubt, it is currently not clear whether they will ever see the light of day. All 13 ordered episodes have already been produced, so it is possible we will see them burnt off at a later date.

Watched all the episodes and it really is a great show it should have been given at least a complete season.

I watch the show Saturday, because there was reruns on the other major channels.
I agree,it should be cancelled. There are great actor but bad writers. I would cancel the writers or let them be trained by the writer of Bull(which is my favorite shoe on TV)

I agree with cancellation decision. The actors are great but writing is horrible. I would prefer to see the great actors in something else and not tied up in a show that was just not very good. Laverne Cox is a great actor!! So bummed after seeing her amazing performance in orange is the new black. Also a big fan of Dule Hill and Katherine Heigl. Hope to see them all in better projects!

I think it is unfair that the show was cancelled before it was given a fair chance. The story line is good. There is so much crap on TV these days that keeps getting renewed. Why not Doubt. I watched the two episodes and really feel cheated by not getting to see more.

Unfortunately all of CBS shows have to be on "The Talk" (the worst daytime tv talk show!) Julie Chen is married to the president of CBS! Why do you think Big Brother has been on the air for more than ten years? CBS never gave "Doubt" an opportunity to develop an audience, they only put out two shows for goodness sake! If you look at the main cast members they have all had long term television shows, even Kathryn Heigel. Poor Laverne Cox is trying so hard, the problem is that it looks like she trying too hard! The show had a solid cast and some really complex backstories and personally I wanted to see if the boyfriend murdered the girlfriend! Maybe CBS Studios needs a change! Imagine if we were only given two days to prove we could do our jobs, suffice to say many of us would be unemployed!

I really should not laugh, but I really feel that almost anything Katherine is in will not survive since Grey's Anatomy. She just really shot herself in the foot and almost black balled herself when she said what she said and pissed off Shondra.
I really want to give her the benefit of the doubt, but I just cannot be confident that any show of her will survive and any move she does will do well. I feel sad for her, I really do, but she brought this onto herself.

ANYTHING with Heigl is Tainted..That woman is cursed..She needs to stick with the Cat Pride commercial..

Another show dropped too soon, maybe not put a new show up against a proven show people love. Try another time slot or another day.

I liked the show so far. 2 episodes? It wasn't even given a chance. Especially since they have all 13 episodes already produced. They could have given it a couple of more weeks. Oh well, we can at least all go watch Baby Daddy! WooHoo!!

I was so bored watching this. Glad to see it pulled.
