Intelligence: No Season Two for CBS Series; Cancelled

Intelligence TV show cancelledJosh Holloway enjoyed a long run on Lost but unfortunately he hasn’t been as lucky with Intelligence. The CBS TV show has now been cancelled after one season of 13 episodes.

On Intelligence, Gabriel Vaughn (Holloway) is a high-tech intelligence operative who’s been enhanced with a super-computer microchip in his brain. It allows him to be connected directly into the global information grid. Other castmembers include Marg Helgenberger, Meghan Ory, Michael Rady, John Billingsley, P. J. Byrne, Tomas Arana, Lance Reddick, and Peter Coyote.

After the failure of Hostages, the network was hoping for Intelligence to be a ratings hit to fill their Mondays at 10pm timeslot. It wasn’t to be. Despite some impressive star talent and special effects, the show couldn’t draw enough viewers.

The network debuted it after NCIS on a Tuesday night and the show drew decent numbers but, once it moved to its regular Monday night slot, the ratings tanked. The season of 13 episodes averaged a 1.3 demo rating with 6.85 million viewer, making it one of the lowest-rated shows on the network.

That wasn’t good enough to mandate a second season renewal so Intelligence has been cancelled. The final episode aired on March 31st.

What do you think? Did you like this Josh Holloway series? Should it have been cancelled or renewed for a second season? Why do you think it didn’t catch on?

I’m from Hungary, and here I was hyping all my buds over for Almost Human and Intelligence and they just cancel it… if the management of CBC is stupid why top it with punishing the viewers? I hope CBC will read this: get your **** together, fire the noobs who moved the show’s airtime, and keep in mind that shows and movies are a form of art. If its good (and both of them were good) it should be aired and people will watch. It’s not rocket science… just leave the airtime alone

I am disappointed that no DVD set has been created. Almost Human was also canceled after the first season (broadcast in the same season as Intelligence) but the DVD set (in DVD-R) has been available since September 2014. Intelligence was very well done and Josh Holloway was excellent with a wonderful cast of co-stars. If you advertise and broadcast a new series on one night and then move it — you lose a lot of viewers. They should have left it on after NCIS at 9 PM and it might have made a 2nd season OK. Too bad.
