LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - TNT has canceled its low-rated freshman drama "Trust Me," which starred Eric McCormack and Tom Cavanagh as ad-agency executives.

The show garnered middling reviews, and its January 26 premiere drew 3.4 million viewers, losing 50 percent of its lead-in from "The Closer." A week later, "Trust Me" dropped to 1.9 million viewers. It ended its 13-episode run last week.

In another sign the show was on its way out, "Will & Grace" alumnus McCormack last month booked an untitled comedy pilot at ABC.

Weeks before the "Trust Me" premiere, TNT picked up three new drama series to premiere later this year: Ray Romano's "Men of a Certain Age," the Jada Pinkett Smith-starring medical drama "Time Heals" and the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced cop drama "The Line," starring Dylan McDermott.

Also under consideration is Boston-set pilot "Bunker Hill."
