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.

I can officially say the Katherine Heigl is being blackballed by Hollywood. Most shows get five weeks to see how they will perform and they cut it after barely two weeks, smells like they are trying to give hr a hint. State of Affairs failed and everything she has done has failed after Grey's Anatomy.

Of course this show didn't do well look what it was up against and the morons out there all say they don't watch unreal reality BS but they wouldn't keep them on or keep coming out with more if they weren't being watched and i agree not every show on tv doesn't have to have trans or gays on every show on the air

I see the PC crowd are defending Laverne Cox who is just untalented irrespective if she is man,woman or duck plus Heigl act like a 4 year old and looks like a pensioner

Do networks test piots out on a group of people to see if the like it? Memo to CBS never have the cast of a new show on "The Talk". Every time you have the show gets cancelled. Just saying.

The show had nothing to do with the film of the same name. Does everyone involved still get paid if episodes never air?

I love watching all types of shows. While I agree this show was not that out there it is watchable just not on regular tv. It is the type of show you could watch like on Netflix or Hulu. Now to blame actors is really not fair because sometimes actors are not at fault it takes the work of all behind and in front of the cameras to make a good show. You just have to find the right combination that works. Just because an actor is difficult to work with or not liked it is not fair to place all the blame on one person. Like the saying says it takes two to tango. So we should all be tolerable to one another then we wouldn't have so much hatred in the world.

And now I remember why I never watch a show until it's fate is already decided. I knew this was a major chance, but I actually let myself watch this as it aired - knowing full well that one viewer couldn't really help the ratings. Still I tried, and I liked it! It had several actors I really like. (I liked Katherine Heigl in State of Affairs too though.) Are they, at the very least, going to burn off the episodes they have already filmed some Sat. night this summer?

@ A I'm a huge Psych fan too I just watched the finale again I saw on IMDB none of the cast are really doing anything. I wish they would bring it back. I didn't watch this new show because no offense to anyone but I'm sick of every show I watch now has a gay couple it seems like they're trying to shove some social agenda down our throat to normalize everything. I really don't need to see a transwhatever or 2 guys or 2 girls going at it

I was thrilled to see Laverne Cox and DulÃ© Hill when promotions started but as soon as I saw Heigl I knew that was the kiss of death. Damn shame.
