Sex, Love & Secrets

Sex, Love & Secrets is a short-lived television series on UPN. It aired in North America during September and October 2005. The show was created by Michael Gans and Richard Register. The program was announced as Sex, Lies and Secrets when UPN released the Fall schedule, but the title was changed two months later to replace Lies with Love.

Sex, Love & Secrets aired in the timeslot that belonged to Veronica Mars during the 2004-2005 television season; 9-10 p.m. on Tuesday nights. Unlike Veronica Mars, which had minor promotion and great reviews during its first season, Sex, Love & Secrets had neither advertising nor positive reviews behind it. As a result, when the show premiered on September 27 2005, it garnered an embarrassing 1.2/2 rating. Next week the show improved slightly to a 1.5/2. At that point UPN pulled the show from production. UPN kept the show on for two more weeks, with it averaging a 1.3/2 in those two weeks. With six episodes left unaired, UPN took the show off its schedule entirely.

The show ended up rated 155th out of 156 shows in the 2005-2006 television season, barely outranking its timeslot replacement before Veronica Mars was shifted back to Tuesday nights for the rest of the season, Get This Party Started.

There are currently no plans to release Sex, Love & Secrets on DVD from Paramount Home Entertainment. Several episodes of the series reaired in marathon form during Memorial Day weekend 2008 on the high definition cable channel Universal HD. In June 2008, the series has begun an irregular scheduling rotation on the Universal HD network, with all ten episodes eventually airing on the network.

Ratings and reviews

The show was one of the lowest-rated shows on network television for its season and was quickly cancelled.


  • The show's first title was 'Silver Lake', named after the Los Angeles neighborhood which was its setting.
  • The show's name was changed from 'Silver Lake' to 'Sex, Lies, & Secrets,' then the word 'Lies' was replaced with 'Love' to fit the tone of the show about a month before the premiere.
  • Sex, Love & Secrets was the first announced show on Television Without Pity to be deemed so horrible it was expunged from the site before a recap was ever written.
