Q: What has hap­pened to The Whole Truth? For the past few weeks, ABC has kept air­ing some­thing else. — Ju­dith San­ders, Wheel­ing, W.Va.

A: The net­work can­celed the show fairly early in the new sea­son. Its rat­ings were low from the start ... de­spite the im­print of CSI pro­ducer Jerry Bruck­heimer and the team­ing of two proven tele­vi­sion stars, Rob Mor­row ( NUM­B3RS, North­ern Ex­po­sure) and Maura Tier­ney ( ER).

Q: Now that Tom Sel­leck is do­ing Blue Bloods and the Jesse Stone movies, is there any pos­si­bil­ity that he may some­day do an­other Western? — Mike Robin­son, Hunt­ing­ton Beach, Calif.

A: The ac­tor’s affin­ity for that genre is clear, based on the num­ber of West­erns he has made. How­ever, for the time be­ing, his CBS se­ries and the Stone movies ob­vi­ously are his top pri­or­i­ties.

Q: What ever hap­pened to last year’s Amer­i­can Idol win­ner? I never heard about him again. — Sara Panz­erella, Derby, N.Y.

A: If by “last year,” you re­ally mean “last sea­son” Lee DeWyze has just re­leased his first al­bum since win­ning Idol, ti­tled Live It Up. He’s been mak­ing the talk­show rounds in re­cent weeks to pro­mote it.

On the other hand, if you truly mean 2009 by “last year,” Kris Allen had a pretty good run at the mu­sic charts af­ter his Idol vic­tory that year. His self-named al­bum yielded a bona fide hit in Live Like We’re Dy­ing, and he’s made plenty of in-per­son ap­pear­ances, some dur­ing a con­cert tour he head­lined last sum­mer.

Q: My hus­band and I watched Mercy and Trauma ev­ery week, so we were dis­ap­pointed when those two shows didn’t show up this sea­son. What hap­pened to them? — Mary Bres­lin, Dun­nel­lon

A: Both were can­celed by NBC af­ter their only sea­sons. A Com­plete Se­ries set of each is avail­able on DVD.
