CBS is taking this Bull by the horns. The network just announced they’ve renewed the TV show for a fourth season amid controversy over star Michael Weatherly.
The legal centers on the brash and charming Doctor Jason Bull (Weatherly), who combines psychology, human intuition, and high-tech data to learn what makes jurors, attorneys, witnesses and the accused tick. The cast also includes Freddy Rodriguez, Geneva Carr, and Jaime Lee Kirchner.
It’s a little surprising that CBS has ordered another season of Bull. First of all, the show’s third season has dropped significantly in the ratings, going from 1.19 rating in the 18-49 demo during season two to only .75 this season with 6.686 million viewers. Compare this figure to season two’s 10.618 million viewers.
Additionally, the series is currently plagued by controversy. Deadline reports Steven Spielberg’s production company Amblin Television has left Bull because of recent sexual harassment allegations made against star Michael Weatherly.
Nevertheless, CBS has decided to pick up Bull for the 2019-20 season.
What do you think? Do you watch Bull? Will you watch season four?
