      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Bawdy and cynical, The Naked Truth rests all of its enjoyment on the talents of Téa Leoni, who shines with crack comic energy and a penchant for pratfalls.

      Previous Howard Rosenberg Los Angeles Times Talented Tea Leoni's level is stratospheric in The Naked Truth, a comedy that rides high on the lowly tactics of the Comet. Jul 17, 2019 Full Review Tom Shales Washington Post The Naked Truth is the ugly sitcom, an unwelcome addition to the ABC lineup. Jul 17, 2019 Full Review John P. McCarthy Variety There's mileage in the premise, the writing is clever, and star Tea Leoni should grow nicely into the starring role. Best of all, The Naked Truth has style. Jul 17, 2019 Full Review Joyce Millman San Francisco Examiner The Naked Truth was created and written by Bosom Buddies creator Chris Thompson, and it echoes his earlier show's irresistible blend of unapologetic silliness and cheeky adult humor. Jul 17, 2019 Full Review Tom Jicha South Florida Sun-Sentinel This is strictly a showcase for Leoni, a delightful actress who merits a better platform on which to shine than the one she got in Foxs Flying Blind. She has it here. Jul 17, 2019 Full Review Scott D. Pierce Deseret News (Salt Lake City) The pilot is somewhat uneven, but there are moments of real humor here -- and a good deal of potential.
