ABC is pre-empting the Nov 3 episode of The Whole Truth for a Robin Roberts special (see press release).Is this the beginning of the end for the show, or will it return?

Although The Whole Truth's ratings have been dreadful and its certain to be cancelled, I figured that recent ABC mid-season moves indicated they'd leave it on the air until all 13 of its episodes aired.

Maybe not.
