Fox Passes on 'Lie to Me' Full Season Order

by Chris Harnick, posted Dec 7th 2010 5:30PM
Tim Roth'Lie to Me' will not get a full season 3 order from Fox -- yet.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox has declined to pick up the back nine episodes of 'Lie to Me,' leaving it at a 13 episode season. However, last season the network ordered 22 episodes of the series starring Tim Roth and ended up airing 12 during the summer months.

Insiders close to the project have told media outlets just because the series hasn't received the order now, doesn't mean it never will.

The Fox series stars Roth as Dr. Cal Lightman, leader of a group of consultants who help investigations by using techniques to find out if people are telling the truth. Despite middling ratings, the series recently was included in Pirate Bay's Top 10 list of most pirated TV shows.

'Lie to Me' will air its last episode on Jan. 31, and 'The Chicago Code' will take its Mondays at 9PM ET time slot starting Feb. 7.

Tell us: Should Fox give 'Lie to Me' more time this summer?

Well, I guess no more fox tv....more time spent on USA and TNT....maybe lie to me should go to one of those networks. Seems thats where are the good shows end up! The networks dont realize what they have good until they lose it.. we love that show and ALL the cast members. Maybe fox can pick up another singing show to go with the others...try Monday thru Friday 7 to 11 pm, then maybe you'll lose all your viewers!
