It looks like CBS has quietly cancelled the Pure Genius TV show. Deadline reports the network has decided not to order any episodes beyond the initial 13. That said, expect all produced episodes to air.
A medical drama from Jason Katims, Pure Genius stars Dermot Mulroney, Augustus Prew, Odette Annable, Reshma Shetty, Aaron Jennings, Ward Horton, and Brenda Song. Production will reportedly wrap on December 15th, with episode 13.
Pure Genius: A Look at the Ratings
Pure Genius premiered on October 27th. The pilot garnered a 1.05 in the 18-49 year old viewer ratings demographic and drew a total audience of 6.229 million viewers. It has been mostly downhill since then.
To date, CBS has aired four episodes of Pure Genius. The show’s season average in the demo is a paltry 0.94, and its total average audience is 5.617 million viewers. In other words, the cancellation is not a huge surprise.
