To Tell the Truth on ABC

Season 2 of 'To Tell the Truth' begins in January 2017 on ABC.

Two-time Emmy Award-nominee Anthony Anderson is back to host the show, premiering Sunday, January 1 (9:00-10:00 p.m. EST), and then on Sundays from 8:00-10:00 p.m. EST, on the ABC Television Network.

Produced by FremantleMedia North America, 'To Tell the Truth' is a re-imagination of the classic game show of the same name. In its second season the show will feature a new celebrity panel for each episode. In each round, the celebrity 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 others are not. Anderson's mother, Doris, is also part of the fun, returning as a commentator and bringing their playful family dynamic to the stage.

'To Tell the Truth' averaged 5.2 million Total Viewers and a 1.2/4 in Adults 18-49 during its run, improving its hour for ABC by 82% in Total Viewers and by 50% in Adults 18-49. On its series premiere, 'To Tell the Truth' delivered ABC's best summertime numbers with series programming in the hour in 3 years with Total Viewers and in 2 years with Adults 18-49 - since 5/28/13 and 6/24/14, respectively.

FremantleMedia distributes 'To Tell the Truth' format globally.
