Fox wants more Truthiness

  • 27comments

Fox has never been one to shy away from what works, and that trend is continuing. The network today announced that it has ordered 13 more episodes of The Moment of Truth, the surprising new hit of the season.

Truth is a game show based on Columbia's Nothing But the Truth, and debuted late last month. In the show, a man asks contestants a series of increasingly embarrassing questions. The catch? The contestants are strapped to a lie detector.

The more questions the contestant answers truthfully (according to the polygraph test, anyway), the more cash--up to $500,000--they can win. The show is hosted by Mark L. Walberg.

According to Fox, The Moment of Truth is this season's third-highest-rated program, behind only American Idol.

The Moment of Truth airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m., and will move up to 8 p.m. after March 5.
