Reassured by second-week numbers, Fox has ordered 13 additional episodes of
The Moment of Truth, which in large part because of its
Idol lead-in has emerged as the season's top-rated new show. Casting is now under way for a new batch of contestants - apparently many who had signed on and
bailed after seeing the first two outings - and a Feb. 11 production start is set.
One of the most criticized aspects of Truth... the exaggerated pauses between questions... and... answers, is now being addressed in editing... starting with this past... Wednesday's show.
