Are "Numbers'" days numbered?
CBS has opted to cut back the order for the veteran crime procedural from 22 to 16 episodes.
Friday nights have taken a big ratings hit this fall, and "Numbers," now in its sixth season, has been no exception. Last week, the drama starring Rob Morrow and David Krumholtz averaged a 1.7 rating/6 share among adults 18-49 and 7.9 million viewers overall.
Additionally, CBS has a couple of drama series on tap for midseason, including another crime procedural, Canadian co-production "Flashpoint," which has performed well on Fridays.
As for "Numbers' " future, a rep for CBS said no decision has been made.
But with the series, from sibling CBS TV Studios, already secured a syndication run, continuing it at the high cost associated with a long-running drama is considered unlikely. »
