NOTICE: SHUTTING DOWN 4 JAN 2015

On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk

NUMB3RS is an crime thriller that aired CBS.

The story revolves around FBI special agent Don Eppes (Rob Morrow) and his mathematical genius brother, Charlie Eppes (David Krumholtz), who develops formulae to predict the actions of various criminals. Judd Hirsch plays the brothers' amiable father Alan. Peter MacNicol also stars as Charlie's fellow CalSci professor, Dr. Larry Fleinhardt. The show creators are Cheryl Heuton and Nick Falacci, and the letter E is replaced in the title by the number 3. This is also found in the Internet language known as Leetspeek. The show is a balance of the relationship between Don and Charlie and of the efforts they make to fight crime, normally in Los Angeles. On some fronts, it is similar in execution to CSI. Several mathematicians from Caltech work as consultants for each episode. Though the show does not actually present any mathematics, methods for solving similar types of problems actually exist, e.g. Bayesian search theory.
