'The Whole Truth': One more week to prove itself?

the-wole-truth-tierneyImage Credit: Michael Ansell/ABCABC has announced a Plan B scenario for Wednesdays at 10 beginning Nov. 3 that could spell the beginning of the end for The Whole Truth, the new legal drama starring Maura Tierney. On Nov. 3, ABC will air In the Spotlight with Robin Roberts: All Access Nashville that’ll feature the Good Morning America anchor interviewing some of country music’s biggest stars. On. Nov 10, ABC will preempt all of its Wednesday programming for the Country Music Awards.

At least one more original episode of Truth will air on Oct. 27. After that, ABC execs will likely gauge whether to stick with the drama that’s only averaged 5.3 million viewers (ranked No. 69 among all primetime shows) and a 1.5 rating/4 share among adults 18-49 (ranked No. 72). If yanked, Truth will become the fourth cancellation of the 2010-11 season, behind Fox’s Lone Star, NBC’s Outlaw, and ABC’s My Generation.

    The Whole Truth is a great show!!!!

    • Larry David

      Everyone, do no take Colbea’s opinion. If this person thinks that ‘The Whole Truth’ is a great show then she obviously does not know quality. I bet she loves the ‘Jersey Shore’ also.

  • Mark

    Wait, wasn’t “My Generation” cancelled already too?

  • kate

    Wouldn’t it be fourth? I thought My Generation got cancelled too.

  • Dicazi

    I’ve seen it twice when there wasn’t something else on I watched to see…..but I certainly wouldn’t miss it if it was cancelled.

    If yanked, Truth will become the fourth cancellation of the 2010-11 season, behind Fox’s Lone Star, NBC’s Outlaw, and ABC’s My Generation.

  • Casey

    I’ve been watching it and it’s enjoyable enough. I think ABC should give it a chance.

    • Bernice

      I agree Casey. I think they just don’t give these shows a chance at all. I’ve watched and and its not a bad show.

  • ashley

    It’s a good show. I’m 19 years old and I love shows like this.

  • Jason

    Um…the whole point of this website is entertainment. Shouldn’t you know it’d be the 4th cancellation? Have a little pride in your work.

    ABC – YOU PEOPLE MAKE ME SICK! You finally get a good show and you want to cancel it. SHAME ON YOU!!!
    It doesn’t surprise me at all. You take off a show that entertains the viewer and keep JUNK on like DWTS, the Bachelor, and now you are going with skating with the stars!! GIVE ME A BREAK! Some of us DO NOT like reality shows and will never watch. No wonder ABC is last in the ratings wars!!!! With crap like this!!

    • Cathy

      I think The Whole Truth is the best new show this season. There is real potential there. Maura Tierney is always a delight and I like Rob Morrow for the first time in this series.

      Get rid of vampires and the like and at least give an intelligent show a chance!

  • Ryan O’Brien

    Darn, I like this show! They should move it away from The Defenders and LOLA. Maybe put it on Fridays opposite CSI NY or Medium. But all 3 shows on Wednesdays are the same in a way. The Whole Truth is the only one of the 3 I like though

    • Ryan O’Brien

      Oh, and may I add that with the ratings of Defenders and LOLA being so good, what do they have to go in its place that they’re sure will do so much better!?

      Networks needs to learn that sometimes your show is first, and sometimes it’s last

  • lori

    It says fourth. Did they change it?

  • Kate

    I always DVR this show then watch on the weekend. Entertaining show, but I like The Defenders better.

  • Claudia

    Thanks to Maura Tierney the show is quite good and watchable. Not a fan of Rob Morrow. The other actors (except for Eamonn Walker) are too bland with no charisma and depth. Looks are not everything…

  • Iakovos

    ABC? Hello? you have a Friday night that is empty. Look what CBS can do. Maybe you can do it, too. Lower your expectations for this show and place something ORIGINAL! on your Friday schedule. Maybe one day again we will have genuine television choices among the broadcast webs again. Maybe if that Dana Delany series could be placed at 9 with TRUTH before or after, we might have a chance. I mean NBC offers squat and CBS has that tired MEDIUM! (I like CSI:NY and really enjoy BLUE BLOODS).

  • Diannehh

    No way! They’d preempted this show already once, I think they need to give the show more time.
    It’s a new show, you can’t expect top ratings, it has to start somewhere!!!!
    Don’t cancel TWT!!
