The Limitless TV show on CBS is likely to be cancelled. According to a Deadline report, the show is being shopped around. The Limitless season one finale aired April 26, 2016. Whether or not it ends up being the Limitless TV series finale remains to be seen.
On Limitless, when slacker Brian Finch (Jake McDorman) is given the drug NZT-48, it activates 100% of his brainpower. Since his has total recall of anything he has learned in his life, either actively or passively, the FBI wants to use him to help solve crimes. The Feds aren’t the only ones interested in exploiting Brian and the drug. The Limitless cast also includes: Jennifer Carpenter, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Hill Harper, and Colin Salmon.
In the first season of Limitless, the hour-long drama’s ratings have been somewhat wanting. The show averaged a 1.34 in the 18-49 year-old viewer ratings demographic and attracted an average total audience of 7.049 million viewers. When sorted by the 18-49 demo, Limitless ranks 13th out of the 24 CBS scripted series we’re tracking in the 2015-2016 television season. In terms of total audience size, it is ranked 19th out of 24.
In an earlier report, prior to hearing that Limitless is being shopped around to other prospects, Deadline said:
Limitless, which is fully owned by CBS, is considered 50-50 at best and does not look very promising at the moment. It is a recognizable title that makes money for the studio internationally, comes from Alex Kurtzman and Bob Orci, and is part of the network’s push into attracting younger audiences on the hourlong side that also has included Scorpion, already renewed for next season, and Supergirl.
What do you think? Did you watch the first season of the Limitless TV series on CBS? If CBS cancels Limitless, would you follow it to another network?
I would definitely follow this to another network, I really enjoy the show and was really looking forward to another season
Limitless had the potential to be a great show but it started to get stupid. I loved the scenes where he interacts with his father over what he is doing. Why is it that he never figured out or why anyone else on NZT don’t figure out to develop their own cure or whatever rather than relying on someone else for it?
I hope someone other channel will pick this up because at least this one can be character building where so many other shows offered on major channels are trash.
CBS made sense. But I still like the show, think I’m gonna follow it. Waiting for news.
I really don’t understand why they cancelled the show. I thought it was great and was looking forward to the next season. Very disappointed, I definitely watch it on another network, put it on Netflix
I would follow it to a new network. I found the show’s premise and characters refreshing and interesting.
I would def follow this show to another network. Sometimes a show doesn’t score as well as it expects to is bc of a crowded night on prev followed shows. Hope this finds another home. Would miss it very much.
I would watch this show anywhere! Please CBS, don’t cancel it! There is so much space for development! Love LIMITLESS, and would definitely follow the show to a different network if it would change.
I have liked this show from three beginning, it is well written, and Jake Mc Dorman is incredibly underrated. I hope they don’t cancel it.
I LOVE this show and really hope it gets picked up somewhere.
I agree with Sue. Shouldn’t cancel it but would move with show to watch it.
What a clever and well-written show! The casting is excellent and the plots are never boring. Hey, CBS, *wise up*. 20-Somethings are NOT your only audience. (I’m retired and I find the show fresh and fun). In fact, I’ll follow this show wherever it moves.
