Trivia

During his 2015 fall TV season preview on the radio program "Fresh Air," TV critic David Bianculli said this about the new network comedies: "Most of the comedies don't even come close to being funny. And one of them, NBC's 'Truth Be Told,' is so unfunny and repugnant, the only reason I single it out is to beg you not to watch it." See more »

very uneven sitcom
12 December 2015 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Mitch (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) lives a regular suburban life with his Filipino wife Tracy (Vanessa Lachey) and their young daughter Sadie. The married neighbors Russell (Tone Bell) and Angie (Bresha Webb) are their best friends.

This is a really uneven sitcom. The pilot is flat and unfunny. The show struggles to find the comedy. The four leads' chemistry takes several episodes to establish. Gosselaar has been doing this for a long time. Lachey is not a particularly funny performer. Bell and Webb are good. Episode 7 is probably where the chemistry is solidified as the pairings get switched. The fourth episode 'Psychic Chicken' is hilarious and the first truly good episode from this show. It continues to be uneven and is unlikely to survive having its order cut down to 10 episodes.
