Jeremy Piven's CBS drama Wisdom of the Crowd will be canceled after 13 episodes, sources confirm.

Nine of the episodes have already aired, and the remaining four are reportedly going to air in the show's regular Sunday time slot at 8 p.m. ET. Like so many other men in Hollywood, a collection of troubling sexual harassment allegations against Piven have surfaced.

"Wanted to thanks all of you guys for supporting us at #WisdomoftheCrowd sorry we don't get to continue with this great family we have created".

Previously CBS said they were "looking into" the allegations against their star, who played a Silicon Valley tech innovator who used crowdsourcing to help solve crimes in the drama series. Several first described their experiences with the actor in an interview with BuzzFeed News last week.

The show earned mediocre but not poor, ratings - raking in 8.9 million viewers, almost the same amount the network's critically acclaimed "Madam Secretary" receives, according to Variety.

Piven confirmed the show was being canceled via his Twitter account Monday afternoon. It did not happen.

He has been accused of similar conduct by Longmire's Cassidy Freeman, and advertising executive Tiffany Bacon Scourby.

"I would never force myself on a woman", Piven wrote in an earlier tweet.

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".
