Six Degrees of Everything – Tuesday, September 15, at 9:30p.m. (ET/PT)
truTV’s brand new series Six Degrees of Everything is a fast-paced, comedic show hosted by Benny and Rafi Fine (Kids React), who spend each week proving that anything in the world – and we mean anything – can be connected in six degrees. Using every tool in their belt, from sketch comedy to original songs and reality segments, the guys take viewers down the comedic rabbit hole, uncovering fascinating facts and connecting our world in hilarious, inventive ways.
Tonight, take a journey with the Fine Brothers as they connect Girl Scouts to Game of Thrones in just six short degrees. This time, Benny and Rafi learn: rice was used as mortar in the Great Wall of China, Fidel Castro was targeted with over 600 attempted assassinations, and in 2012, there were 21 babies named Daenerys as a nod to the Mother of Dragons.
The Carbonaro Effect – Wednesday, September 16, at 10pm ET/PT
After successfully convincing the public to believe the unbelievable, magician Michael Carbonaro is back with unexpected tricks that will astound and amuse audiences in a second season of truTV’s breakout hit series The Carbonaro Effect. The hidden camera series will premiere on Wednesday, July 29, at 10 p.m. ET.
Tonight, working at a candy shop, Michael’s customers are the real suckers when a live scorpion gets freed from a lollipop. Later, Michael’s new instant cocktail invention has one man so drunk with envy he wants to invest! And in the big finish, a cursed mirror turns simple reflections into eerie duplicated reality.
Fameless – Thursday, September 17, at 10:30 pm ET/PT
From the mischievous mind of David Spade comes Fameless – a genre-busting prank show that features an unsuspecting group of wannabe stars who think they have been cast on an actual reality show – and they have. Each week, our hilarious team of improv actors takes on a new challenge – from game show host to survival show contender to a home makeover expert – and creates sketches that parody the genre. But there’s a twist…one of the contestants is real. Half sketch show/half prank show this new comedy will take a light-hearted look at how far people will go to be famous. Guest stars this season include Michael Bolton, Gina Gershon, Ben Silverman, Brian Malarkey, Chris Hansen and Kat Von D.
In tonight’s episode, a judgmental know-it-all gets a dose of her own medicine, and then a gold digger competes for love but winds up an old maid. Finally, a pretty boy is left speechless when a breakup suddenly turns into a break-in.
Friends of the People – Thursday, September 17, at 11:30p.m. (ET/PT)
truTV’s first ever sketch comedy series Friends of the People returns for another round of rapid-fire riffs, spot-on parody, and over-the-top characters. The often edgy and irreverent series returns with a whole new collection of topical, political and pop culture-flavored sketches, including “The Dark McKnight” featuring R&B star Brian McKnight, “Game Show Heist” with former Cash Cab host Ben Bailey, and more nostalgic ’90s send-ups, including an appearance by former Double Dare host Marc Summers as well as new iterations of last season’s favorite sketches including “Lucas Brothering the Movies.”
Conceived by the comic minds of Kevin Barnett, Jennifer Bartels, Jermaine Fowler, Lil Rel Howery, The Lucas Bros., and Josh Rabinowitz this season will also feature guest appearances from David Alan Grier, Jim Norton, Rachel Dratch, Ellen Cleghorne, Ed Lover, Doug E. Doug, Jay Bromley, Mick Foley, and many more, along with man-on-the-street segments taped in NYC.
On tonight’s episode, Friends of the People brings the funny with sketches that feature justice served Lucas Bros-style, an unusually timid hood beef with guest star J.D. Williams, and wrestling stars, D’Lo Brown and Tatanka tagging in to manhandle some sticky situations. Plus, Eric Andre makes a surprise appearance to weigh in on a mega-rich media mogul’s controversial purchase.
