CBS Pulls The Plug On “Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior”

CBS Pulls The Plug On "Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior"

Was anybody watching this show? I wasn’t, and evidently neither was anyone else since CBS has officially cancelled the spin-off of Criminal Minds, which was toplined by Forest Whitaker , citing weak ratings.

It came down to Criminal Minds of CSI:NY (which suffered a drop in the ratings this season), as to which show would survive; and CBS decided that there was still life in the CSI series, which was renewed yesterday, but probably not for an entire season.

Suspect Behavior never seemed to catch on with viewers, and since they’re doing well with their other series, such as The Good Wife, Blue Bloods, NCIS and its sister show NCIS: Los Angeles, the netwrok felt it could afford to lose Suspect Behavior.

But don’t worry, no doubt Forest won’t be out of work for long.
