The two shows premiered September 22 and we are sure that there are already various reactions on the premiere and the future of the series. There are mixed reactions. Maureen Ryan of the TV Squad had better things to say for “The Defenders,” but he also noted that the show might get predictable in the long run.

“Quite often, they’re disappointingly contrived and formulaic, as is the case with NBC’s ‘Outlaw’ and ‘The Whole Truth’ (10PM ET, ABC) but ‘The Defenders’ (10PM ET, CBS) which, like those other shows, is a pretty straightforward legal procedural, has a surprising amount of fun with its familiar building blocks,” said Ryan.

Andrea Reiher of ZAP 2 It gives a positive review tone for “The Whole Truth.” Reiher said, “We also really dig the structure of the series. Seeing the case converge as both sides gather their evidence is interesting indeed — it really shows off the gray area of the legal system.”

So for those who have watched the show, what do you think? Which of the two is better?

    For some reason, starting with Quiz Show, I have liked Rob Morrow, so I watch “The Whole Truth” on tape while spending 45 ‘ on my elliptical trainer.
