Showrunner Shawn Ryan to Leave 'Lie to Me'

Shawn RyanAnd now for the hard truth: According to the Live Feed, showrunner Shawn Ryan will exit the Fox procedural 'Lie to Me' after this season.

The reason? Ryan is reportedly busy with a handful of other projects, including the upcoming series 'Terriers' and 'Ridealong,' set to air on FX and FOX, respectively.

Ryan, who created 'The Shield' in 2002, has been in charge of 'Lie to Me' since the beginning of season 2.

Ryan's exit may be a telling sign for the sophomore series, which is set to return on Jun. 7. The ratings-challenged series, starring Oscar nominee Tim Roth, is said to be on the bubble as May upfronts approach.

'Terriers,' starring Donal Logue, is an hourlong comedy, about an ex-cop who partners with his best friend, played by Michael Raymond James. 'Ridealong' follows three groups of police officers in Chicago.

I totally agree with Lindsay and Scott H. My husband and I thought it had been canceled, but it was one of our favorite shows. It's a clever up-to-date show.

"if Fox actually worked to promote it."

Or, you know, AIR it during the regular TV season. Has any successful scripted show ever been demoted to a summer-only run only 2 seasons in?

Lie to Me wouldn't be ~ratings-challenged~ if Fox actually worked to promote it.
