Storyline

Three celebrity couples were panelists. First, either the wives or husbands would go offstage and wear headphones; their spouses would remain on stage. Via closed circuit TV, the sequestered spouses would be asked a question about marriage, sex, or other embarrassing questions, then be left to ponder it. Their on-stage spouse would then answer how they thought their spouse would reply. One by one, they were asked their answer. After all three answered, the ones who got it right won a share of $150. After two questions, the spouses changed places for two more questions, the last being a $300 question. At the end, the couple with the most money won an extra $1000. This pot was then split amongst the third of the studio audience in front of them: red, yellow (banana), or blue. Written by Tony B

A very funny game show
12 February 2003 | by (Allen, Tx) – See all my reviews

This was an extremely funny game show and my favorite at the time. The guest panelists included Bob Newhart, Don Rickles, and Dick Martin of Rowan & Martin among many others. The answers to questions asked by host Burt Convy were often hilarious! A totally enjoyable half hour!
