THE TRUTHS ARE FRIGHTENINGLY GOOD ON AN ALL-NEW EPISODE OF ABC’S
‘TO TELL THE TRUTH,’ FEATURING MICHAEL STRAHAN, PATTON OSWALT,
KRISTEN SCHAAL AND TARAN KILLAM, THURSDAY, AUG. 6
Hosted by Anthony Anderson
“512 (Michael Strahan, Patton Oswalt, Kristen Schaal, Taran Killam)” – NFL Hall of Famer and television host Michael Strahan, actor and comedian Patton Oswalt, actress and comedian Kristen Schaal, and actor Taran Killam make up the celebrity panel on “To Tell the Truth,” airing THURSDAY, AUG. 6 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC. (TV-PG, DL) This week’s panel is so bright you need shades; featuring the original Coppertone Girl, the World’s Strongest Man, someone who donated a kidney to their ex, the couple who lives in the real-life house from “The Conjuring” and a professional backup singer. Episodes can be viewed the next day on demand and on Hulu.
Hosted by the star of ABC’s hit comedy “black-ish,” Anthony Anderson, “To Tell the Truth” is a funny reimagination of the beloved game show that first aired in 1956. This version takes the excitement to another level, featuring captivating characters from pop culture. Anderson’s mother, Mama Doris, is also part of the banter as a sassy, straight-talking commentator.
In each round, the panel is presented with three people who all claim to be the same person with the same incredible talent, job or achievement. One is sworn to tell the truth while the other two use every trick they can to deceive the panel. The panel of celebrities has a chance to grill each participant before taking turns deciding who they think is telling the truth.
