According to New York’s Vulture blog, CBS has cancelled The Bridge after three episodes. The CTV cop drama is loosely based on a Toronto officer’s experience working both the Rosedale and Regent Park neighbourhoods. But not even Battlestar Galactica alum Aaron Douglas could entice viewers in the States to watch.

The third episode was seen by 2.8 million people, and according to Vulture, “Even though CBS paid very little for The Bridge—less than $500,000 an episode, per industry estimates—the network decided that airing repeats of other CBS crime shows (starting with Cold Case this week) would make more sense.” CTV, on the other hand, has renewed the series for a second season.
