Tuned In Journal: TruTV does 'The Real Hustle'
Share with others:
Court TV made the name change to TruTV on January 1, apparently abandoning their courtroom roots for more reality shows having to do with true crime.
One of their first new series under this rebranding is "The Real Hustle" (10 tonight). A trio of photogenic faux con artists, some with background as magicians, execute cons on unsuspecting New Yorkers and then reveal their deceptions to their marks. They also show exactly how it's done, which could be a good warning for viewers but it might also show would-be cons how to get in the game.
