Canceled is "The Whole Truth," which stars Maura Tierney and Rob Morrow. According to EW.com’s The Ausiello files , co-executive producer KristieAnne Reed tweeted, "ABC gave us the word. We will only make 13 episodes of ‘The Whole Truth’."
ABC has given full season orders to freshman shows "No Ordinary Family" and "Better with You," and has also ordered additional episodes for the new "Detroit 1-8-7" and the returning "Brothers & Sisters," the network said in a press release.
According to Deadline.com, that means the first two shows have received back-nine orders while the cop drama "Detroit 1-8-7" was given an order for 5 extra episodes and "Brothers & Sisters" got 4 additional episodes.
