When ABC announced its 2010 fall schedule in May 2010, The Whole Truth was set to star Morrow and Joely Richardson in the two lead roles. Richardson filmed the original pilot After the show was picked up, Richardson dropped out for personal reasons and was replaced by Maura Tierney, who went on to re-film all the Katie Peale scenes from the pilot. Tierney is taking on the role in addition to her recurring role on Rescue Me.

Reception

Before the show's premiere, Matthew Gilbert of The Boston Globe said, "Having seen the original Richardson pilot, which was re-filmed to add in Tierney, I can tell you that Tierney saves the show from near worthlessness. She brings a passion, a finely gauged sense of humor, and a strong chemistry with costar Rob Morrow that were missing before." In general, though, the show has received mixed reviews, with Metacritic assigning it a score of 57.

According to Joe Flint of the Los Angeles Times, the "solid" ratings of the second-season premiere of Modern Family and "disappointing numbers" for the second-season premiere of Cougar Town were followed by "just 4.9 million" viewers for The Whole Truth. In comparison, the legal comedy-drama The Defenders, in the same time slot as The Whole Truth, was the "highest-rated new show for the night, with 12.1 million viewers."
