TV shows that are based on feature films have had mixed success. Some have had long and successful runs, while others have been cancelled after one season. The True Lies film was a big hit in the 1990s, but how well will it translate to television nearly 30 years later? Will True Lies the series be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned.
A CBS action series, the True Lies TV show stars Ginger Gonzaga, Steve Howey, Erica Hernandez, Omar Miller, Mike O’Gorman, Annabella Didion, and Lucas Jaye. The story follows Harry Tasker (Howey), a bland and unremarkable computer consultant husband who is secretly a first-class international spy for the US’ Omega Sector. His wife, Helen (Gonzaga) is a language professor bored with her daily routine. One day, she makes the shocking discovery that her seemingly ordinary husband is leading an extraordinary double life. With the secret out, his agency recruits her and she impresses everyone with her formidable skills (thanks partly to Tae Bo and yoga). Working together with Harry’s team, the couple adds much-needed sizzle to their emotionally distant marriage and upends the top-secret world of Omega Sector.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances of survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.
3/30 update: You can see the latest night’s ratings in context.

Note: These are the final national ratings, including all live+same day viewing and DVR playback (through 3:00 AM). Early fast affiliate ratings (estimates) are indicated with an “*”. While these numbers don’t include further delayed or streaming viewing, they are a very good indicator of how a show is performing, especially when compared to others on the same channel. There can be other economic factors involved in a show’s fate, but typically the higher-rated series are renewed and the lower-rated ones are cancelled.
What do you think? Do you like the True Lies TV series on CBS? Should it be cancelled or renewed for a second season?
Stupid show and should be canceled.
One of the best new shows I’ve seen in a long time. Love it please CBS give it a chance
Might’ve done better airing directly after Survivor. Looks like cancellation is coming.
Fun show. Lighter entertainment compared to serialized, soap opera-like Fire Country which I also like. Omar Miller is very funny. My first time seeing him was on The Unicorn. Glad to see him again.
Love Arnold Schwarzenegger movie 1990 so funny love it . Hopefully better than tv show. Classic remake Hawaii five O so goood for 10 seasons
