Eric McCormack Lands Lead in ABC Pilot

I'm still enjoying Trust Me, but I have a feeling I'm one of the only ones — and so, apparently, does Eric McCormack. The star of the TNT show has just taken a leading role in a new ABC comedy pilot.

It's probably bad news for Trust Me — worse because The Hollywood Reporter actually calls the show by its old name, Truth in Advertising, in the story! The ratings were never great, but I was holding out some hope that they'd pick it up. This new ABC show is technically McCormack's second priority (if Trust Me gets renewed, he'd back out of this one), but it sounds like that's unlikely.

He's not straying far from Trust Me's buddy comedy roots, though: This show, which is still untitled, centers on "two friends who embark on very different lives." Dean, McCormack's character, is a heart surgeon whose wife (played by Jolie Jenkins) has just given birth to a baby; his friend, Seth (Reno Wilson), is a contractor with a newly empty nest.

What do you make of the news? Sad for Trust Me? Curious to see McCormack in a more traditional comedy again?

Huh. I was liking Trust Me, although the show is definitely far from perfect. This really surprises me.

Wow - this is the first week that I have actually said, I like Trust Me. The two episodes this week were really good and I felt like they had finally found a rhythm on the show. That's too bad. I hope Tom Cavanagh finds something good too - I love him!

My husband and I have been watching and enjoying Trust Me. I will hate to see it get canceled. I'm crossing my fingers and hoping they'll keep it around.

I've been liking Trust Me as well. And I'd be having the same trouble as ilanac if I didn't have TiVo. I'd give him a chance if the previews for the ABC pilot looked good, but I'd be sad if Trust Me went away.

this seems to be happening a lot - shows that aren't doing stellar have celebs that find other gigs so they aren't w/o work for any period of time. to be honest, i actually enjoy Trust Me - i watch it every week. the one frustrating thing is that TNT plays it a MILLION times a week so i can't ever remember when the first airing of an episode is. is it Monday at 9, or 10, or tuesday at 9 or 10? i just don't know!!!
