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?

Give us the show back.It was awsome

I loved the show. Since it debuted relatively strongly on Tuesday but tanked on Monday, why didn’t they try a different time-slot. After all, it was up against some pretty stiff competition on Monday’s in “The Blacklist”

It’s simple, TV program’s people have no common sense. Show does badly and they assume it’s the show and not their own stupidity for showing it at the time they did. It can’t possibly be their fault. It was on at 10 or 11pm here which was horrible. Then it got stopped due to tennis and they never showed the rest of the season!

Lena December 10, 2014 at 12:20 pm

jibin mathew Thomas December 8, 2014 at 2:22 pm

I enjoyed the show……I would like to see the next season…..pls renewed the show…


Rosalie Gray December 7, 2014 at 8:51 pm

My husband and I love the show and want it back. It doesn’t surprise me that people who watch Duck Dynasty, Honey Boo Boo and Dancing With The Stars wouldn’t follow a show named Intelligence. There are a few intelligent Americans who like T.V. that requires a brain.
Thanks, Rosalie Gray
