Katherine Heigl and Laverne Cox's new show Doubt has been pulled from the CBS schedule after only airing two episodes. The show was largely redeveloped and recast from its pilot season. It's now unknown if the last 11 episodes will air.

Then "Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders" with Gary Sinise starts its second season at 10 p.m. March 8.

Production on all 13 episodes of "Doubt" was completed in December, prior to the holidays.

Franchise tag gives Chandler Jones time to develop in Cardinals' defense
The Cardinals have a number of key free agents to deal with, including impact starters like Calais Campbell and Tony Jefferson. If Jones receives an offer from another team, Arizona can match it or receive two first round draft picks as compensation.

The network has declined to call the move an outright cancelation, claiming it may return at a later date.

The network will show a "Bull" repeat in the time slot next week. "Doubt" followed attorneys at a New York City law firm including Heigl who played a lawyer falling for her client and Cox who portrayed a transgender lawyer. Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, on the other hand, ended its first-season run with a 1.0 rating back in May. The series premiere of Doubt earned a 0.8 rating in the 18-49 demo and 5.31 million total viewers. The series marks Heigl's return to broadcast television, following her short-lived NBC political drama State of Affairs. That was the lowest CBS Live+SD in-season drama series debut in the demo and the lowest rated show on any of the Big 4 last night.

Doubt is a rare miss this season for CBS, which had given full-season orders to almost its entire fall freshman class including Bull, The Great Indoors, Kevin Can Wait, MacGyver and Man With a Plan.
