Critic Reviews for Truth Be Told: Season 1

All Critics (32) | Top Critics (17)

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.

September 21, 2015 | Rating: D | Full Review…

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

The show's intentions are good and it's rooted in sweetness but without smarter jokes and more insightful observations, it will have trouble finding and keeping an audience.
