The Los Angeles Times reports that CBS has canceled The Education of Max Bickford. The drama series, which starred Richard Dreyfuss, featured a lesbian subplot as well as regular appearances by Helen Shaver as the title character's transgendered best friend. Max Bickford started in strong ratings in the Sunday night post-60 Minutes slot, but the numbers soon dropped substantially, a situation not helped when the show's creators left the show a few weeks into the run over differences regarding its creative direction.
