Critic Consensus: Truth Be Told wants to be topically edgy, but only sends viewers on a bland descent into a world of unfunny and grating sitcom characters.

News & Interviews for Truth Be Told: Season 1
Truth Be Told's problem is that it sells itself as a comedy that "goes there," but doesn't seem to be about much more than two dudes that don't really like their wives very much.
The characters have no character. They're bland mouthpieces for "edgy" standup shtick.
The show wants to be edgy in the way that it addresses controversial topics - sex, race and politics - but it's merely irritating.
Black people and white people can be best friends, and that's the truth. Apparently, however, that friendship can't be funny, or so Truth Be Told (which formerly had the equally generic title People Are Talking) easily convinces us.
Truth Be Told has the herky-jerky rhythms of multicam, but it surprised me: It feels like it exists in the real world, or at least adjacent to a congenial version of it
