ABC pulls the plug on 'The Whole Truth' but will air all episodes

121522_8828_ful


ABC's "The Whole Truth" joins three other freshmen series that failed to make the grade this fall.

The drama, starring Rob Morrow and Maura Tierney, will complete production on 13 episodes, according to co-executive producer Kristie Anne Reed, who tweeted Tuesday morning that ABC "gave us the word." ABC will air all 13 episodes, though the show will be preempted for two specials for the next two weeks.

Fox's "Lone Star," NBC's "Outlaw," which is airing remaining episodes on Saturdays, and ABC's "My Generation" have already been canceled.  NBC's "Undercovers" and Fox's "Running Wilde" are on shaky ground and will probably also face elimination.

On Monday, ABC gave extra episode orders to the drama "Detroit 1-8-7," but the Michael Imperioli-led drama hasn't earned a full-season order.

The rest of the freshman class indeed has.

The Whole Truth was a unique and great criminal show! Bring it back

I can't believe you are cancelling this show. The Whole Trust is a great program. You are not even giving these shows a chance. I make sure I record this show. It was as good a LA Law use to be. Just plain enjoyable. What a shame.

You did the same thing to Three Rivers, which I enjoyed a lot. I'm find that you are not giving your shows any kind of chance what so ever. The Whole Truth and Three Rivers needs to be given another chance. I can't believe what shows you do keep showing. You might want to reconsider, because to me I start to enjoy these shows only to get cancelled. Maybe TBS has the right answer, let it show, let it show.

UNBELIEVEABLE, THIS WAS A VERY GOOD SHOW. NOT KNOWING IF THE PERSON ON TRIAL IS GULITY OR NOT UNTIL THE END. OUT OF ALL THE NEW SHOW ON TELEVISION THIS SEASON THIS WAS VERY EXTRAORDINARY. TO CANCEL IT WAS VERY MUCH A DISAPOINTMENT TO EVERYONE. I SHOW KNOW I'VE WATCH ALMOST EVERY TELEVISION SHOWS ON TV. (YOU CAN CALL ME A ADDICT TO T.V) IF ONLY THEY WOULD RECONSIDER IT CAUSE IT WAS VERY GOOD, EVEN MY DAUGHTER COULD WAIT TO WATCH.

Sorry to see this one go. The characters developed quickly; plots were interesting. The ending concept could have been tweaked but the formula was engaging.

I am so disappointed that you cancelled THE WHOLE TRUTH. I hope another network picks it up. I love DETROIT 187 too. What on earth are you thinking? I think you are out of touch. I am a waitress and have sooooo many regular customers who are as upset as I am. We are actually very upset with ABC. I work in ANAHEIM HILLS not too far from DISNEYLAND and alot of people are mad at you because of the DANCING WITH THE STARS controversy, ABC you are a big disappointment to alot of viewers.

I am so disappointed that the program "The Whole Truth" was not picked up by ABC. Not only me but others I have talked to feel the same way as me. The Whole Truth had substance and was enjoyable . There is so little on television that is any good that I am choosing what little is left. There is nothing I am interested on ABC now. I am spending more time reading. I think one of the reasons I enjoyed the whole truth is I have read the Balducci books and one of them was "The Whole Truth". I hope in the future you will reconsider trying them for a full season and then ask for a poll as to how the viewers feel about the program.

I have been waiting for the series the Whole Truth with Rob Lowe which showed to be airing a couple of weeks back but instead something else came on in place of it. When will that show air? I liked the show but they always take off the shows I like.
ABC is one of the worse about taking a show off the air without warning that sometimes I won't start watching them anymore. Remember Invasion? They could have let the last couple of episodes air before just yanking it. But you can usually tell how they respond to any emails you send them. No response, no bring backs, just keep on with the same old nonsense, of a guessing game.

I kept waitinf for "The Whole Truth" to come back on since I just assumed it was on a small hiatus. I was so wrong and so disappointed to go on a search today and find that it has been cancelled. A show that REQUIRED SOME BRAIN POWER and not another reality showboat. I am bummed. I guess it's head to AMC and watch old movies.

PLEASE PLEASE bring back "The Whole Truth"

I am VERY disappointed that The Whole Truth has been cancelled. I had been waiting all January for it to return. It had such a different twist. I loved it! And Rob Morrow and Maura Tierney were so good together. Maybe people just didn't "get it". Bring it back!!!

I'm really disappointed! This has the potential to be an amazing series. Love the actors and love the unique spin on the court room drama with the two different perspectives and getting to know if the accused is guilty! Please don't cancel...TV always needs uniqye perspectives!

i liked the show the whole truth. i rushed home from Bible study to watch it. man, i really liked the show and how you was part of the jury. the end was the best part to see if you did get the verdict correct.
