Canceled: ABC's all done with "The Whole Truth"

ABC is letting the freshman legal drama "The Whole Truth" finish out its original13-episode order, but has declined to extend the show beyond that.

"The Whole Truth" stars Rob Morrow and Maura Tierney as lawyers on opposite sides of the aisle who go up against each other in a different case each week. It's not a terrible show, but Rob Morrow did get on my nerves enough in the pilot that I never bothered to watch a second episode.

ABC gave full pick-ups to some new shows this week and gave the very good Michael Imperioli cop show "Detroit 1-8-7" five more episodes (it deserves a full season!!).

"The Whole Truth" airs on Wednesday nights at 10pm opposite "The Defenders" (CBS) and "Law & Order: Los Angeles." So if you like it, watch it while you can. 

"Whole Truth" is only half bad

"The Whole Truth" is a show that almost works. Or a show that could work with a bit of tweaking and some tranquilizers dropped discretely into Rob Morrow's morning coffee.

This new ABC legal drama stars Morrow as an eccentric defense attorney who each week goes up against his former law school classmate, a tough prosecutor played by Maura Tierney. The twist to this legal drama is that the guilt or innocence of the defendant in question is kept from the audience until the very end of the show. It's a premise that isn't half bad, but the trouble is in the execution.
