TV show description:
In this dramatic thriller, Gabriel Vaughn (Josh Holloway) is a high-tech intelligence operative who’s been enhanced with a super-computer microchip in his brain. He’s the first human ever to be connected directly into the global information grid and have complete access to Internet, WiFi, telephone, and satellite data. He can hack into any data center and access key intelligence in the fight to protect the United States from its enemies.

Leading the elite government cyber-security agency that was created to support him is Director Lillian Strand (Marg Helgenberger). She’s a straightforward and efficient boss who oversees the unit’s missions.

Director Strand assigns Secret Service Agent Riley Neal (Meghan Ory) to protect Gabriel from outside threats — as well as from his appetite for reckless, unpredictable behavior and disregard for protocol.

Also on the team is Chris Jameson (Michael Rady), a resourceful federal investigator. Doctor Shenendoah Cassidy (John Billingsley) is the brains behind the design of Gabriel’s chip. His son Nelson (P.J. Byrne) is jealous of Gabriel’s prominent place in his father’s life.

As the first supercomputer with a beating heart, Gabriel is the most valuable piece of technology the country has ever created and is the US’s secret weapon.

I was shocked to see Intelligence cancelled, along with Believe, Almost Human and most of all the Crazy Ones. The excuses are poor ratings, to expensive to make, but they keep the cheaply made mindless dreck TV and reality shows on. It just shows you that people in those demographics don’t want intelligent programming , or shows that can make you think outside the box! It is very sad that society is going in this direction, it is hard to find a decent comedy show that doesn’t have stupid, tired one liners and constant sexual undertones. Maybe if they cancelled the cheaper programs and put the money into the decent programs and worked on the lineups this next season could be a great one!

This show was excellent and why it was cancelled is a mystery. It seems any shows that actually are intelligent and take some thought, are cancelled. Very sad statement on television.

This was one of our favorite shows and do no understand its cancellation. Really worry about the intellect and morality of fans of Big Brother, and ALL other “so called” reality shows.

You should bring this “intelligent” show back. You make it difficult to watch new shows when it is likely that you will cancel them after 6 episodes. Frankly, I have started watching other channels who present good shows and don’t drop them right away. I would rather watch TNT, USA, HBO, Starz, and Showtime series because they rarely cancel one of their good shows!!

Such a smart show. Do the remaining shows reflect the intellect if decision makers?

COULD SOMEBODY @ CBS, WITH SOME LEVEL OF SMARTS , CONVINCE ME AND THE REST OF THE WORLD WHY THE SHOW “INTELLIGENCE” GETS CANCELLED, AND BRAINLES SHOWS LIKE “BIG BROTHER” KEEPS COMING BACK LIKE A COLD SORE. THIS IS REALLY A SHAME. I KNOW IT’S ALL ABOUT RATINGS, HAVING SAID THAT, “INTELLIGENCE” COULD HAVE BE GIVEN A BETTER TIME SLOT INITALLY, SO IT WOULD HAVE HAD A CHANCE TO GROW AN AUDIENCE.

Forgive my cynicism, but I truly don’t think “ratings” is the reason for the cancellation of Intelligence while that dreck called Big Brother is renewed. I think they gave us Intelligence deliberately for only one season, just because they didn’t have another mindless cheap-to-produce “reality” show for the time slot.
I have come to the conclusion that none of the networks give a flip about what the viewers really like, it has to do with profitability. The cheaper the show is to produce, the more they can make off it. Yes, they do continue to renew certain fan favorites, but only a few new shows were given the opportunity to build a following before being axed. Some were not even given the full season! And yet we are inundated with trashy cr*p like Big Brother, the Fighting Housewives of wherever, the Bachelor/ette sluts, and so on because they do not involve having to pay for excellent scripts or actors.
It’s a terrible state of television offerings when I would rather watch reruns of cancelled shows than any of the new stuff they are throwing at us. It’s a shame, but it has become a greed-driven country and the new network execs are just as corrupt as the rest of the nation’s corporations have become. Sad, sad, sad. I am not a cook, but ithank heaven for the Food Network!!

I agree with Mary S also. CBS is not giving its viewers what they want. There is just trash to watch. Who cares about Big Brother, Fighting Housewives and silly stuff like that.

I TOTALLY AGREE WITH MARY S. My family was just asking when the show was coming back just to find out it has been Cancelled! I don’t like reality shows, think they are stupid.

A. Blanco August 6, 2014 at 10:19 pm

This is a great show. I can’t believe it is cancelled. I can’t believe other crappy, stupid shows like ‘Bachelor’ and ‘Bachelorette’ stay on the air while the good shows get cancelled. It really sucks. Its getting to a point that there is only crap on cable and regular T.V. Why bother paying so. much when there is nothing worth while watching

Everytime a good show comes on the damn networks cancel it. Bring Intelligence back it was a good show to watch with exciting episodes every week.

IS THERE ANYONE WTH SOME LEVEL OF SMARTS PLEASE TELL ME WHY INTELLIGENCE IS CANCELLED & WORTHLESS SHOWS LIKE BIG BROTHER ARE STILL ON THE TV LINEUP ??????

A REALLY GREAT SHOW BITES THE DUST AND A SHOW THAT RANKS RIGHT UP THERE WITH JERRY SPRINGER STAYS ON THE SCHEDULE.

I JUST DON’T GET IT !!!!

Intelligence is an expensive show that got poor ratings so it wasn’t profitable to make additional episodes. Big Brother airs three nights a week, costs very little to make and all three nights have much better ratings, so is far more profitable. Make sense?

Paula Galvan August 5, 2014 at 5:55 pm

Doesn’t say much for the American public that a show as disgusting as Big Brother could air 3 nights a week & get better ratings than Intelligence a very good show. BTW it fell well inside the top 50 shows last season. Better than two CBS shows thst were renewed.

I wish FX or TNT would pick it up, we watch a no of shows on there anyway. Maybe invert it to summer, too many reruns!

Bob Yeager August 10, 2014 at 11:20 pm

NO………. IT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE. IF INTELLIGENCE WOULD HAVE BEEN GIVEN A BETTER TIME SLOT SO IT COULD GROW AN AUDIENCE, IT WOULD STILL BE ON…

IF Big Brother has higher ratings, it’s only because there are more morons who like to see fighting and idiocy than there are intelligent people who enjoy well-scripted well-acted shows of substance… (and here is the part where I “would” make a correlation between Big Brother’s ratings and the tea-partiers who prefer to believe lies and fake scandals then pay attention to the facts and statistics of a situation…but, this is not a political forum, so I won’t do that)…I do not believe that BB could possibly have had better ratings than Intelligence IF it had not been in the same time slot as Castle and The Blacklist. I am lucky to have a DVR system that will record up to 4 shows at a time, so I never had to make a choice about what to watch; I don’t know what I would have done if I could not have recorded all three for later viewing.
As for that trash that is BB – I cannot explain why anyone would enjoy watching people behaving so badly toward each other. I do not think it is a good example of how to behave and I do think it might explain why there is so much disrespect for others in this country. BB, Fighting Housewives, and all those shows that glorify sabotaging each other simply lets kids know that it is “OK” and acceptable behavior to emulate. They all are contributing to the dumbing-down of America and teaching callous disregard as the standard for living. I have watched about 10 minutes of each of the shows and, through them, have learned the joys of the Food Network. If I want to watch a goose getting cooked, I want to know that it will be a tasty dinner!
