    We used to love the old format of this show. The title on my post Should say To Tell the Truth! Are we the only ones here who think that the show is just bad now? I mean what does his Mother add anyway and instead of going in order, questions seem to degenerate into a free for all with some questions never even being answered!

    Anyway, just me and my wife's 2 cents...I guess that is a penny each!

    What's My Line they're only questioning one person and trying to figure out what they do. On To Tell the Truth there are 4 contestants and they try to figure out who the real person is.

    To tell the truth, I don’t watch What’s my Line.

    Would I lie to you? is the show to watch. I do remember the old What's My Line back in the fifties. Don't know anything about To Tell The Truth. To tell you the truth.

    I thought it was the weakest of the last batch of ABC game shows. On Match Game, the game is fairly pointless, but the show is funny. $100,000 Pyramid isn’t particularly funny, but the game is still entertaining. To Tell the Truth has a fairly pointless game that I don’t find that funny.

    This year, they’re also adding Press Your Luck and Card Sharks.

    It started a year before the others, but I never got around to watching it.

    I think I watched the 1st episode of the revival last year(?).. realized the show isn't very fun (I remember watching it in the 70s or 80s). Though I'm recording most of the others, the Pyramid and Family Feud are the only ones I've watched a decent amount of. though even those I think I watched at 2x in VLC.

    I think I read, or maybe even Anthony mentioned it on the show, that the contestants don't get any money for appearing, unlike the old show. Probably just what ever game show scale is.
    So I think that is why it's so free for all.
    As for the mother, some nights she is a hoot, like latest episode about the whale lady.
