Get More: Cancellations, News

A Gifted Man CancelledAlthough CBS has yet to officially confirm, A Gifted Man lead Patrick Wilson took to Twitter Saturday to confirm that the rookie drama has indeed been cancelled.

“So…shocking to no one, [A Gifted Man] is done,” he wrote. “Found out via email…and not from the network. Stay classy. Thanks to AGM fans! Great cast/crew!”

Wilson then admitted that he “couldn’t be happier” by the news, adding, “As good as it was (sometimes) it was not what I signed on for.”

TVLine’s 2012 Renewal Scorecard has been updated with the news.

      • Watched the 2011 fall season show trailers on my Apple TV and thought it was the weakest of all of them…I am sad that Prime Suspect was killed off though from that bunch.

          • I am saddened to hear that the show was cancelled. My family and I really enjoyed it on Friday nights. Patrick Wilson is an awesome actor. I hope to see him in something else that is worth my time watching on tv. Big mistake canceling that show.

          • CBS doesnt surprise me.. they like to cancel people, anjd shows (for that matter) without considering the fans.. I am in a plan to avoid falling in love with their shows.. dont want to go throughout this same ‘unclosureness’ feeling. CBS not anymore my fisrt alternative as a channel because of what they did to A Gifted Man.

      • I enjoyed it also. I am sorry that he was unhappy but would have been nice to see what it could have been. I am so tired of all the so all tne reality shows on air that really do not show any thing to anyone. All these reality shows do not really teach anyone anything no morals or values just mindless shows and we wonder what is wrong with people in today’s society. Yet when there is something that could be good and maybe teach or show something with value it gets yanked. So damnable sad….

        • I am sorry to hear it is cancelled. I enjoyed it yes I am also tired of all the reality shows. Just a load of trash really produces cant find good scripts that are clean.. There is still a lot of goodin the world why must we always see what other people do with their time and get paid for it . How about good series e.g DOwntown Abbey Good wife just to mention a few. This was good clean and still had a story line. . Patrick sorry to see you go!

        • I so totally agree with you. All the reality shows just show us, just how messed up some people are in life and why would people want to focus on that negative attention. It’s so nice to watch a show about how life should be and could be if everyone focus on the positive, It also gave people like me who lost their father a peace of mind.

      • I agree this was a good show and of course CBS cancels it and puts trash in it’s place. Why is every time CBS has a good medical show on for the last 2 yrs they cancel it just to push homosexual lifestyles on us with more shows using it during prime time. These editors need to take a hard look and get back to the values that made this country great and keep this new trash off the air and in the trashcan where it belongs

          • You’re thinking is dumb. I enjoyed the show very much. As for the other stuff, it’s time for this country to see all the values that work. It’s all based on change as it has for many years. No one is pushing anything, just showing another reality. How do you think we feel with all the heterosexuality being pushed constantly. Ignorant. I did enjoy this show. Sorry it had to go.

        • You hit the nail on the head. Who watches all that american TV trash? I mean uncomprehensible.
          There got to be something else behind the cancellation. The show was good. I accidentally discovered it on Netflix and enjoy every episode. I do not own TV- there is absolutely nothing to watch.

          • I couldn’t agree more. The show was very good and very poignant. I love the idea of two worlds trying to live together, science and the spiritual aspect of life, the meeting point being the heart. I hope the show, or the theme that was developped throughout will be continued in another series…because there is much to learn from it (and tha’ts what TV should be abou)t. I thought Patrick Wilson was terrific and incarnated superbly a man of science struggling to re-open his heart…

      • I just learned the show was cancelled. I loved the show. It at least showed the people still have the capacity to help people that really need it. It was a great show and I loved Patrick Wilson. They could have kept the show and not did Elementary. I don’t think that show will make it. Poor judgement CBS.

      • I discovered this show on Netflix. We dropped TV since there is nothing of character to watch. It was like reading a good book. It was hard to put down! I loved how the scientific collided with the spiritual. It was a great plot, perhaps shortsighted in where it might go next, but the writer/producers always seemed to come up with a great plot. I’m sure they would have found something interesting to start the next season. The show will be missed.

      • Actually, Gifted Man was usually in the top 25 in total viewers every week–usually around 9 million viewers. Problem was, it skewed older. So lots of people watched, but they were the “wrong” people. Still waiting for advertisers and networks to catch up with the graying of America, and adjust their key demo age range.

The so called ”reality” shows get dumber and dumber as well. Thank goodness there are a few cable shows worth watching and movies.

  • I was never crazy about the premise of the dead wife, but I guess I wasn’t the only one who felt that way, since that aspect of the show became little more than an afterthought as the season wore on. As a medical drama, though, I enjoyed the show. It’s too bad more people weren’t watching.

    Comment by TV Gord – May 13, 2012 10:13 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • This is how I felt about the show. The dead x-wife thing became more of an afterthought after a few episodes, but once they got beyond that the show hit its groove and it was a good fit for Friday night. But I guess if you don’t have 15 million viewers on CBS you get cancelled.

To be honest it was always a huge surprise when they announced he was starring in this show, just never seemed like a good fit.

    He needed something that really pushed the envelope and should have probably been part of a project that was being shown on a cable network like ShowTime.

    • Not even close! ‘House’ is a legend in his own right. Hugh Laurie rocks, but to a different genre of ‘medical pushing the envelope’. I don’t think Patrick Wilson’s character had any intention to be anything less than a fortunate man allaying his personal matters with genuine benevemt kindness.

      • Hi, I am a netflix person too. I only knew about the show from watching it on Netflix. When I saw that there were only 16 episodes I became deeply saddened. What an awesome show! I could watch Patrick all day. I fell in love with his character and his persona. I will just have to do watch the episodes again and again and again. The entire cast worked well together in my opinion and each episode kept me wanting more….But actually, after episode 16, I got the feeling that the spirit of the x-wife was going to be moving on since her heart died from the taxi crash. I believe this to be a source of closure to the ‘ghost’ part of the storyline. Patrick truly is a “Gifted ” man! I will be patiently waiting to see what the next step is for him…

  • Wasn’t like most reality crap, networks seem so eager to keep. It was different. I must be the only one who got the whole “gifted man” thing… Bummer!

  • I am very disssapointed. I loved the story line……..loved the actors, especially Patrick. It was so interesting!. My two favorites ” A Gifted Man” and “”The Good Wife”, enjoyed watching with my husband Mark. He’s going to be surprised

  • A Gifted Man and Terra Nova were the two best shows that started last fall, now there is nothing on TV that is any good. I agree, everytime they put some show on that is different than all the cop shows and CSI’s, murder investigations it is cancelled. Why is that?

  • who was the idiot that canceled A Gifted Man? Why is it everytime a good show comes on they cancel it and 9 times out of 10 replace it with a stupid show? CBS is getting worse and worse to watch, only one show on there to watch, will not mention it before they decide to cancel that one too…..

  • I really loved this show! Really hate when networks cancel shows and leave us hanging. Maybe the show’s failure was put planning and research. The show was really good. One of the few new shows I like

  • too scripted…liked the concept needs better writers and actors commited to their role. if main character “couldn’t be happier” no incentive for cast.
    wilson seemed trapped in the role kinda came across as constipated. think its worth a revisit, go back fo th drawing board, focus on th end game.
    tough idea to tackle need commited team of writers & directors. let viewers kbow its not just another dr show!

  • My wife and I looked forward to Friday nite TV starting with A Gifted Man. Cast was excellent fit for a show about urban medical and human problems. We were surprised and very disappointed. Please, no more reality shows or supposedly funny sitcoms. CBS is starting to get as bad as ABC and NBC for evening TV.

  • I was hoping that the show could at least have the opportunity to show that traditional medicine can exist in the world of evidence based medicine even in the eyes of skeptical doctors like Holt. :/

  • My mom and I loved A Gifted Man, and we are sad that it was canceled! It was a wonderful show, and the actors were very good! It’s too bad all of the reality shows are thriving, even though they are a waste of time and money! :(
    Sincerely,

  • I loved the show. Did not like the dead woman thing, but it was still a great show. Loved the female lead with the great hair.

  • Ouch, not seen this series and as it was about to air here in the UK, thought I’d check out some comments. Seems if it’s been pulled, it’s hardly worth watching.. however the comments on here I find deja vu about what is being aired lately. Reality shows are dragging across the bottom of society now, documentaries are love and hate affairs, and as someone suggested, we seem to have a minority of gay people in the world, becoming far more dominant on the tv recently. How is that… is it supposed to insinuate the minorities need shows..? If so, lets have something for everyone and start pulling some of those other shows mentioned. Moan over… got little but 60 odd days of Olympic tv now anyway..

    • Couldn’t agree more. I do hope that you take a glance or two and give the show a chance. It was something that I enjoyed most Friday nights.
