A Lot Looser and Funnier But True to its Roots
24 June 2016 | by (St. Louis Park, MN) – See all my reviews

It's great to see another version of the classic panel game show To Tell The Truth. For the first time since the original Bud Collyer left the airwaves in 1967, the show is back in prime time with Anthony Anderson of Black-ish handling the hosting duties. He is really funny and steers the show away from the staid format of the previous versions into a looser and funnier version.

Let's not forget the panel. Casting Betty White as a regular was a great move by the production staff since she has played the game many times in its 60 year history and asks really good questions. Also contributing are NeNe Leakes and Jalen Rose with a guest panelist each week. Give an assist to Anderson's real-life mother Doris who serves as the scorekeeper and contributes to the comedy.

But the hallmark of the show is extraordinarily talented contestants. In the episode my girlfriend and I saw, there was a female competitive eating champion, a man who was struck by lightning twice, a seven time lottery winner and a couple who got married 50 times. Kudos to the casting director for the great spots.

If you haven't seen this version of To Tell the Truth, it won't be on very long since ABC ordered only six episodes. It pays homage to the original Bob Stewart creation as Anderson quotes the famous phrase "Will the real...please stand up!" Missing from this version is another familiar phrase "Number One. What is your name please?" It has potential to be another game show hit for ABC.
