CBS Cancels 'A Gifted Man'

CBS has canceled its freshman supernatural medical drama 'A Gifted Man' starring Patrick Wilson and Margo Martindale.

'A Gifted Man' was never a huge hit for CBS, it's series premiere was watched by over nine million viewers which is fantastic but not by CBS standards. Since its premiere in September, 'A Gifted Man' has been steady in viewership and ratings bringing in between eight and nine million viewers.

Currently CBS is airing many dramas and most of them bring in between 10-20 million viewers an episode, when a show like 'A Gifted Man' can only get eight million it's a big difference. The series finale aired on March 2, 2012.

Here is the break down of the last five aired episodes:
Episode 12 - In Case of Blind Spots - February 3 - 8.41 million viewers
Episode 13 - In Case of Complications - February 10 - 8.78 million viewers
Episode 14 - In Case of Co-Dependants - February 17 - 9.54 million viewers
Episode 15 - In Case of Letting Go - February 24 - 9.05 million viewers
Episode 16 - In Case of Heart Failure - March 2 - 9.70 million viewers
