The first season of the Bull TV show was a top-five performer for CBS. Now it has a new showrunner and a second season to try to increase its audience even further. Will the ratings rise or fall? Will Bull be cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned.
A legal drama inspired by the early career of Doctor Phil McGraw, Bull stars Michael Weatherly, Freddy Rodriguez, Geneva Carr, Jaime Lee Kirchner, Annabelle Attanasio, Christopher Jackson, Dena Tyler, Jill Flint, and Eliza Dushku. The CBS TV series centers on the brash and charming Doctor Jason Bull (Weatherly). In heading the team at his Trial Analysis Corporation, Bull combines psychology, human intuition, and high-tech data to learn what makes jurors, attorneys, witnesses and the accused tick.
