An ABC game show, hosted by Anthony Anderson, To Tell the Truth features a panel of four celebrities who are 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. Panelists this season include Oliver Hudson, Justin Long, Snoop Dogg, Amanda Seales, Anna Camp, Joel McHale, Ron Funches, Kirstie Alley, Angela Kinsey, Alyssa Edwards, Fortune Feimster, and Adam Rodriguez. Anderson’s mother, Doris, returns with commentary, too.
