Natalia Tena and Jeremy Piven appear on last Sunday's episode of

In "Wisdom of the Crowd", Piven plays an app developer in San Francisco who uses technology to solve his daughter's murder.

"Jeremy Piven, on two occasions, cornered me & forcefully fondled my breasts & bum", Bellamar posted on Twitter.

Actually, scratch that, his CBS crime procedural Wisdom of the Crowd has been cancelled amidst allegations of sexual harassment surrounding the actor.

Though the network has not released an official statement on the matter, Piven tweeted that he was "sorry we don't get to continue with this great family we have created" and that the cast and crew plans to "finish out our 13 episodes with full hearts". The network will air the remainder of its original 13-episode order, but it will not produce any new episodes, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Cassidy Freeman accused Piven of "predatory behavior", and Tiffany Bacon Scourby claimed Piven forced her to engage in a sexual act at a NY hotel in 2003.

The news comes on the heels of accusations of sexual misconduct made against Piven, all of which he has adamantly denied.

Wisdom was CBS' lowest-rated scripted Sunday show, averaging 7.4 million viewers and a 1.0 18-49 demographic rating. Both comedies average less than 6.5 million viewers, but don't have controversy surrounding them like with Piven. He also took a lie detector test in an attempt to clear his name. Sitcom Me, Myself and I was yanked from the schedule early.
