CBS has a knack for basically producing the same show over and over again, until one variation of it finally works. So after striking out with “Intelligence” — a Josh Holloway vehicle, featuring an enhanced hero who could tap into the Internet — the network returns with “Limitless,” which brings not only name recognition from the movie on which it’s based, but a cameo (possibly recurring) by Bradley Cooper, who is among the producers. The resulting show, placing Jake McDorman in what had been Cooper’s predicament, isn’t bad, although in terms of dramatic possibilities, the formula hardly lives up to its title. Yet while “Limitless” is competently executed, what it lacks, finally, is any spark of inspiration. And alas, there’s no pill for that.
