Jeremy Piven’s crime drama “Wisdom of the Crowd” has reportedly been cut from the CBS network amid low ratings and sexual harassment accusations.

The show centers around Piven who plays an app developer who, after his daughter is killed, created a crime solving tech to help authorities solve murders.

It’s reportedly been the lowest-rated new drama on the network, scoring an average of 1.0 among adults ages 18-49 with 7.4 total million viewers.

The move also comes after several women have come out and accused the “Entourage” star of various sexual misconduct allegations.

“Longmire” actress Cassidy Freeman accused Piven of “predatory behavior” in her defense of actress Ariane Bellamar after she accused the him of cornering her in a trailer and groping her.

“You will deny this because, sadly, she’s deniable. The backlash this woman received was horrendous,” Freeman said of Bellamar. “And whether or not her accusations are true, the TRUTH is I know you. I know what you did and attempted to do to me when I was far too young. THAT I know. And you know it too. Unless there were so many of us, that you can’t remember.”

“Predatory behavior is a chronic way for you to seek power,” she added. “Do you feel powerful? With your lawyers and your networks and your die hard man-fans who call your victims bimbos? Or do you know, in your rotten gut, that you will have to lie for the rest of your life? I hope from now on, you keep it in your pants and you never get to do it again.”

Piven has denied the allegations. CBS has only said it was “looking into the matter.”

There has been no word yet from the network on the cancellation.
