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.
