Has CBS killed BrainDead? Network chief Glenn Geller recently discussed the show’s status at the TCA summer press tour.
From Robert and Michelle King, the dark comedy stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead as a young Washington DC staffer who begins noticing something wrong with the politicians on Capitol Hill—mysterious bugs are eating their brains. The cast also includes Aaron Tveit, Tony Shalhoub, Nikki M. James, Johnny Ray Gill, Charlie Semine, and Jan Maxwell.
At the TCAs, Geller said no decision has been made yet regarding BrainDead‘s future:

So far, the show hasn’t performed as well in the ratings as many of CBS’ other series. Seven episodes into season one, BrainDead is averaging a .46 in the 18-49 demo and 3.054 million viewers.
