Watch TruTV on YouTubeTV

Streaming TruTV’s shows
If you just want to watch the shows on TruTV and not the live stream of the channel itself, you can use a streaming service. Netflix doesn’t have all shows but it has some, including “Adam Ruins Everything,” “Impractical Jokers,” and “The Carbonaro Effect.” It costs $8.99/month ($12.99/month with HD) to subscribe to Netflix.
Alternatively, you could purchase shows through a venue like Itunes or Amazon Prime Video. They vary a lot in price but you might want to consider this option if there are just a few movies you’d like to watch over and over again.
What Is on TruTV
If you could have lunch with any person, who would it be?
Lincoln, maybe, or Jesus, which would make for a pretty good story at the very least. But really, you’d probably get the sharpest, most topical, wittiest repartee if you went with our modern comedians. And fortunately, you can get a dose of that with some of the shows on TruTV. The channel has brought together a number of comics including Amy Sedaris, Rachel Dratch, Billy Eichner, and Adam Conover in shows that feature them more or less talking to you – without you needing to go to the trouble of replying (unless you really want to, I wouldn’t judge.)
One of the most popular shows on TruTV is “Adam Ruins Everything,” in which Conover debunks popular ideas in rapid-fire fashion. He ruins diamonds, nachos, Christmas, and even charity by pointing out their fatal flaws. It’s often fascinating, but I’ll admit I don’t necessarily have a lot of stomach for a white man pedantically explaining why other people are wrong. That said, he’s got some good points to bring up on your own real-life lunch dates.
Then there’s “At Home with Amy Sedaris,” in which Sedaris shows off homemaking skills with bizarre and off-kilter twists. It’s a bit educational but it’s also a sly parody which leaves you feeling like you spent a morning with a fun but disturbed friend.
And then TruTV has a popular show called “Impractical Jokers,” in which four men try to embarrass each other with pranks and dares. Not sure how much nuance there is there, but if TruTV is going for funny, there’s always room in comedy for that sort of humor. In an instance of real life being almost too on the nose, it is sponsored by Mountain Dew.
Fortunately, whether you want to virtually hang out with comedians or pranksters, you can do it without cable. There are a variety of ways to watch TruTV and its programming without a cable subscription.
