CBS Cancels 'Scorpion,' Starring Katharine McPhee, After Four Seasons

According to Deadline, CBS has cancelled its show SCORPION after four seasons. SCORPION starred Katharine McPhee, who is currently playing Jenna in Waitress on Broadway.

After a strong start in the Monday 9pm slot, the series struggled to keep its steam in the 10pm slot in later seasons, and is now one of the least watched CBS scripted series.

CBS is expected to clean house in its Monday lineup, but SCORPION marks the first official cancellation. CODE BLACK and Elementary appear to both be on the chopping block, as well as Wisdom of the Crowd.
