I think it looks terrible, but I'm not really CBS' target demographic.

From FutonCritic, a *great* source for all things TV:

DESCRIPTION:
(from CBS's press release, May 2017) WISDOM OF THE CROWD stars Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Jeremy Piven as a visionary tech innovator who creates a cutting-edge crowdsourcing app to solve his daughter's murder, and revolutionizes crime solving in the process. Inspired by the notion that a million minds are better than one, Silicon Valley entrepreneur Jeffrey Tanner (Piven) develops "Sophe," an online platform for publicly shared information, and recruits the original cop who searched for his daughter's killer, Det. Tommy Cavanaugh (Richard T. Jones), to work with him. As Tanner taps into the "wisdom of the crowd," his unexpected success fuels his determination to solve even more cases than just the one that's personal to him.

Yep, pretty much a rehash of APB.

Piven is better in comedy than drama IMO so going against his better skills in a drama where he is supposed to be taken seriously

Nothing more than a social media tv show making life changing decisions, whether right or wrong.

I'll pass.

I'm enjoying it so far, a little more than halfway through the pilot.

I liked it. I don't even know what APB is, as I hardly watch television. But I'm a Piven fan. It looks like it could get a little hackneyed, but I'll give it a chance.

APB was this show but the rich guy also outfitted one Chicago police precinct with the Popular Mechanics or Popular Science cover story of the future cop/soldier"s gear

It wasn't bad. Nothing like APB. More like Scorpion, where every time they need a miracle...poof...it happens.

I'll give it one more, and see which way it goes.
