Report: Jeremy Piven’s “Wisdom of the Crowd” axed after sexual harassment allegations

CBS/Sonja Flemming(LOS ANGELES) — CBS reportedly is cancelling Jeremy Piven’s show Wisdom of the Crowd, after the star was accused of sexual misconduct by three women. According to TV Line, the network is passing on an order for additional episodes after the 13 episodes originally ordered by CBS air.

Reality star and former Playboy Playmate Ariane Bellamar accused Piven of groping her on two separate occasions. The actor immediately released a denial.

After Bellamar’s accusation, actress Cassidy Freeman leveled a claim on Instagram that Piven acted inappropriately toward her.  A third woman, advertising executive Tiffany Bacon Scourby, told People that the actor forced himself on her in 2003 in a New York City hotel room.

After the latter accusations, the former Entourage star slammed allegations as, “absolutely false and completely fabricated” and questioned how he could, “prove something didn’t happen,” in a tweet earlier this month.

“I would never force myself on a woman. Period,” he wrote. “As a human being, I feel compassion for the victims of such acts, but I am perplexed as to the misdirection of anger with false accusations against me and hope they do not detract from the stories that should be heard.”
