Trust Me, I'm a Game Show Host is an American game show that premiered on October 22, 2013, and aired on TBS.[1][2] It is hosted by comedians D. L. Hughley and Michael Ian Black.[3][4][5]

Premise[edit]

Two comedic hosts try to deceive contestants with unique/odd/implausible statements; one is telling the truth and another is lying. The contestant must decide which fact presented by the hosts is the truth in order to win money.[6][7][8] After a few chances of guessing which host they trust is telling the truth, the contestant gets an opportunity to choose a true fact from a range of statements to add an additional $20,000 to their winnings.[9]
