Last week, ABC aired the first original installment of The Whole Truth in five weeks, since October 27th. The ratings-challenged show was bumped from the November sweeps schedule and cancelled in late October.
The Whole Truth's ratings were anything but positive last Wednesday with it ranking a distant third place in the timeslot. Opposite Law & Order: Los Angeles and The Grammy Nomination Concert special, the legal drama attracted just a 0.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.65 million viewers. That represents a new series low for the Rob Morrow/Maura Tierney drama.
ABC had intended to burn off at least four more episodes throughout the month of December but this poor showing has convinced the programmers to change their plans. The Whole Truth has been pulled from the schedule and replaced with repeats for the immediate future.

ABC has removed legal drama The Whole Truth from its schedule. It was announced in October that the network had decided to axe the show following disappointing ratings. TV Guide now reports that the series, which stars Maura Tierney and Rob Morrow, will not return to the air after the most recent episode attracted just 3.65m viewers. Having aired just six episodes from an initial 13-episode (more) »

Unfortunately, even promising television sometimes gets the ax. Intricate, intelligent writing didn't keep AMC from crossing off Rubicon, and Huge's witty teen dialogue and emotional depth failed to win a huge audience. Not even super producer Jj Abrams or the combined star power of Maura Tierney and Rob Morrow could rescue Undercovers or The Whole Truth, respectively. So we ask: Which of these canceled shows deserves more time?

"The Whole Truth" will not be getting a whole season.
On the heels of ABC's announcement of several full-season pick-ups, the series' executive producer, KristieAnne Reed, tweeted the discouraging news on Oct. 25.
"ABC gave us the word," she writes. "We will only make 13 episodes of #thewholetruth."
Awe, still trying to get the series trending until the bitter end.
The network had been reportedly on the fence about the low-rated series since its debut, but when Zap2it caught up with star Rob Morrow, he said ABC seemed optimistic.
And they still are -- a little. ABC will continue to air "The Whole Truth" in its Wednesday time slot until it completes its 13-episode run. The network agreed to let the show continue production through to December to finish up the order.
If that's an exciting prospect for you, there's even a little bit of news. Mandy Patinkin will guest star »
Court will soon be adjourned for ABC's new legal drama. The Whole Truth has been cancelled.
Airing on Wednesday nights, The Whole Truth stars TV veterans Rob Morrow and Maura Tierney. He plays a powerful defense attorney who was raised on the wrong side of the tracks. Tierney is on the opposite side as a Senior Trial Assistant District Attorney whose father was a sheriff. Viewers are shown how each side builds their case, using their own version of "the truth." The rest of the cast includes Eamonn Walker, Sean Wing, Anthony Ruivivar, and Christine Adams.
For whatever reason, most viewers haven't been willing to even give the series a try. The legal drama got off to a very poor start right out of the gate. Whole Truth debuted on September 22th to a poor 1. 5 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 4.85 »
ABC has axed its second show of the year, officially saying goodbye to The Whole Truth, according to an early report from Entertainment Weekly. While the Maura Tierney and Rob Morrow-fronted legal drama received strong critical praise, its ratings struggled and the show was among those rumored to be on the early cancellation block. No word on what will fill the show’s time slot, or what will happen to episodes that remain unaired. Producer KristieAnne Reed broke the news on Twitter, then told fans that the show is still shooting until mid-December, so the series will fill out its thirteen-episode order. As of now, an original episode is still scheduled to air on Wednesday (though broadcast schedules can change up to the last minute; ask Lone Star about that one). »

Rob Morrow has revealed that he is feeling optimistic about the future of his show The Whole Truth. The legal drama, which also stars Maura Tierney, focuses on two sides of a court case each week. However, Morrow admitted that the series has been struggling to get high numbers of viewers. "I think we're a little bit in the woods in the ratings," he told Zap2It.

ABC's freshman legal drama, "The Whole Truth," hasn't had the easiest road this season, but star Rob Morrow ("Northern Exposure," "Numbers") thinks the series has a lot of life in it -- as long as nobody else gets stuck in a cave.
"I think we're a little bit in the woods with the ratings," Morrow tells Zap2it. "We lost a little bit of momentum last week because of the Diane Sawyer miners special, but I know the shows are good and I think we have a distinct series."
Morrow wasn't actually begrudging the miners' moment in the sun. And even with the less-than-desirable ratings, he's really optomisitc about the show's fate. "I have been getting the best feedback of anything I've done in a long time," he says. "There's a lot of good will and the network seems really into it. And we're into making it."

Dana Delany's new medical examiner drama on ABC, "Body of Proof," is moving to midseason. The network feels the show could succeed in a more high-profile timeslot than its originally scheduled time of Friday nights at 9 p.m. Perhaps it will replace the Maura Tierney-Rob Morrow legal drama "The Whole Truth," whose ratings are less-than-stellar so far.

"Initially it just jumped out at me as fun," Morrow laughs. "The guy on 'Numb3rs' was very a very reticent, iconic classic quiet hero and this guy is the opposite. It just seemed liberating. The character I was playing on 'Numb3rs' was a bit repressed."
Part of the free-wheeling nature of Brogan is his tension-filled relationship with Maura Tierney's Kathryn Peale, the Bureau Chief in the Manhattan District Attorney's office.
"I'm always advocating exploring more and more. It's a convention or a trope of network television, to have these characters that have this attraction and are almost getting together but not," says Morrow.
He also teases their past romantic relationship when they were »

With on-screen talent like this, last night's premiere could be described as a crime. The Whole Truth only mustered a pitiful 1.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic and just 4.89 million viewers. It came »
If you don.t like procedurals, stay away from The Whole Truth. (Chances are you did anyway.ratings for the series premiere were dismal.) This show follows a steady formula: arrest, arraignment, prosecution, defense, trial, and verdict. It.s a twist on the legal drama genre, in the sense that we get to see both sides.Maura Tierney stars as prosecutor Kathryn Peale, alongside Rob Morrow as defense attorney Jimmy Brogan.

"The Whole Truth" is latest legal procedural produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, but as the creator Tom Donaghy told us, it's not the typical lawyer show. The drama showcases both the prosecution and the defense in equal measure, letting the fictional jury decide the outcome, but finally showing the audience the whole truth. What did you think?
We think it could work. Maura Tierney and Rob Morrow work well as the leads. Morrow could tone down the smugness perhaps, but on the other hand, what else do you expect from a hot-shot defense attorney? Their camaraderie and competition makes for a compelling relationship.
We also really dig the structure of the series. Seeing the case converge as both sides gather their evidence is interesting indeed -- it really shows off the gray area of the legal system. Most court cases are not cut and dried, they come down to what kind »
