According to Variety, the ratings for TNT’s new show, “Trust Me,” haven’t been all that good.
After enjoying a string of successful series launches, TNT is struggling with its latest entry, ad agency drama “Trust Me.”
The show, which stars Eric McCormack and Tom Cavanagh, scored just 1.9 million viewers in the 10 p.m. slot Monday, losing about 65% of the lead-in aud supplied by “The Closer.” The performance also represented a significant retreat from the show’s Jan. 26 premiere, which drew 3.4 million viewers.
Reviews for “Trust Me” have been mixed, with the New York Post perhaps summing up crix’ reception best: “The series isn’t bad. It just isn’t all that good.”
I haven’t watched the show, and here’s why: the initial promotion had only McCormack and Cavanagh being snarky to each other, and I had no idea what the show was about. Then the second wave of promotion showed the characters yelling at each other in an advertising setting, which wasn’t that much more appealing. I thought about recording the first episode, but never got around to it and based on the critical reception, I don’t feel like I’m missing out.
Is anyone else in the same boat? Are there fans out there that love this series or is this one of those shows that lacks a diehard fan base?
