MARTHA PLIMPTON, DAVID ARQUETTE, TOM BERGERON AND SHERRI SHEPHERD TRY TO FIGURE OPRAH'S VERY FIRST GUEST, ON 'TO TELL THE TRUTH,' SUNDAY, JANUARY 15

Martha Plimpton, David Arquette, Tom Bergeron and Sherri Shepherd make up the celebrity panel on "To Tell The Truth," Episode 202, SUNDAY, JANUARY 15 (9:00 - 10:00 p.m. EST). In this episode the panel is faced with finding out whom the very first guest was on "The Oprah Winfrey Show," a contestant who lost 365 pounds by walking, a contestant who only ate Starbucks for 365 days, someone who can extract venom from snakes and a professional butt model.

Hosted by Anthony Anderson, "To Tell the Truth" is a funny re-imagination of the beloved game show of the same name. The all-new version takes the excitement to another level, featuring fun characters from pop culture. Anderson's mother, Doris, is also part of the fun as commentator.

In each round the panel is 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. The panel of celebrities has a chance to grill each participant before taking turns deciding who they think is telling the truth.

"To Tell the Truth" is produced by FremantleMedia North America. David Friedman, Jennifer Mullin, Jeff Gaspin, George Moll and Anthony Anderson are executive producers.
