Tony Scott Crunches 'Numb3rs' Premiere

Series producer tackles fourth season opener

Feature director Tony Scott will make his network television directing premiere on the season premiere of CBS' "Numb3rs."

Scott and brother Ridley Scott have long served as producers on the mathematical CBS procedural through their Scott Free banner. The company's TV credits also include Showtime's "The Hunger," for which Tony Scott directed several episodes.

CBS boasts that "Scott's episode will serve as a template that freshens up the production values of the show for the fourth season." The episode will pick up with last season's finale revelation that Dylan Bruno's Agent Granger was a mole. That news will continue to ripple through the premiere.

The "Numb3rs" premiere has been scheduled for Friday, Sept. 28. In its third season, "Numb3rs" regularly won its Friday night slot, averaging 10.5 million viewers per night.

Scott's feature directing credits include "Deja Vu," "True Romance" and "Top Gun."

Are "Numbers'" days numbered?

CBS has opted to cut back the order for the veteran crime procedural from 22 to 16 episodes.

Friday nights have taken a big ratings hit this fall, and "Numbers," now in its sixth season, has been no exception. Last week, the drama starring Rob Morrow and David Krumholtz averaged a 1.7 rating/6 share among adults 18-49 and 7.9 million viewers overall.

Additionally, CBS has a couple of drama series on tap for midseason, including another crime procedural, Canadian co-production "Flashpoint," which has performed well on Fridays.

As for "Numbers' " future, a rep for CBS said no decision has been made.

But with the series, from sibling CBS TV Studios, already secured a syndication run, continuing it at the high cost associated with a long-running drama is considered unlikely.

Reruns of "Numbers" already air on TNT.<br class="Apple-interchange-newline">

It was a mockery of maths, not a popularization.

I liked Rob Morrow, but couldn't stand David Krumholtz!

And loved Navi Rawat!
