Fall TV: What's Surviving, What's Thriving, And What's Dying

We've reached a breaking point in the Fall TV season: almost everything that's still around will likely survive the season (key word: almost). It's becoming clearer which new shows are hits (hint: not many), and there are already several casualties. Let's run down the list.

The already renewed

CBS has picked up all five of their new shows: 'Hawaii Five-O,' 'Mike & Molly,' '@#$% My Dad Says,' 'Blue Bloods' and 'The Defenders.' Each show has performed admirably, but none can be called a runaway hit. CBS, though, has the least holes in its schedule and can be proud that viewership is up ...

Actress Maura Tierney's legal drama The Whole Truth, her first full-time job since battling cancer, has been cancelled.

The former E.R. star, who was diagnosed with breast cancer last year, signed up to play prosecutor Kathryn Peale in the series, which debuted in September.

However, the project will be short-lived - executives at TV network ABC have decided to axe it after low ratings.

In a post on, co-executive producer KristieAnne Reed writes, "ABC gave us the word. We will only make 13 episodes of The Whole Truth."

Fall TV Ratings: What's Hot, What's Not

We're only two weeks into the fall season, and we have two series cancellations. Let's see if we can keep up this "one canceled show a week" deal. For the record, the goners are FOX's 'Lone Star' and ABC's 'My Generation,' both of which got dismal ratings. Production was also halted on the Jimmy Smits drama 'Outlaw' and it's not looking good for ABC's 'The Whole Truth' either. By next week there will likely be more network victims.

As of this week, no huge new hits have emerged. FOX's 'Raising Hope' is doing fairly well following the hot 'Glee' and was awarded this week with a ...

Maura Tierney Is Playing Both Sides In 'The Whole Truth'

9/16/2010 5:15pm EDT
Maura Tierney returns to television in the legal drama The Whole Truth. She plays a prosecutor up against Rob Morrow as a defense attorney. Each week, the lawyers will present their cases so the audience can figure out the whole truth.

“I think that’s what’s exciting about it,” Tierney said. “Every week you get to decide whose case you’re liking or whose case you’re believing. Is my case the stronger case or is Rob’s case the stronger case? Unfortunately like in life, on the show justice is not always achieved. The bad guys don’t always get convicted. The good guys don’t always go free. Th...

Maura Tierney fought breast cancer, which was publicly documented last year when she had to leave NBC’s Parenthood to be replaced by Lauren Graham. Now she’s back to fight for the law as a district attorney on ABC’s new show The Whole Truth. She told the Television Critics Association why she’s ready to get back to work.

“I’m good,” Tierney said at the TCA fall press tour. “I’m healthy so that was that. Then I read the script and I liked it so that was that. That’s how I decided.”

When she went public with her health news, the public support gave her a new perspective on the work she choo...
