Storyline

The original version of the long-running game show, hosted by veteran host Bob Eubanks. Newlywed husbands and wives would take turns answering (often risque) questions while their spouses were backstage. After answering, the spouses would return and be asked the same questions, earning points if their answers matched their spouse's. The couple that finished with the most points would win a prize.

The word "whoopie" was reportedly the most risque word ABC would let Bob use when referring to sex, back when the show first premiered. The word has stuck with him and the show ever since. See more »

Favorite Show of All Time!
7 July 2010 | by (Seymour Tennessee) – See all my reviews

This is my all-time favorite show. As it is the one, that put Chuck Barris and Bob Eubanks, the host, on the map. With four newlywed couples(Hence the title), are asked about themselves in questions that you would not normally answer. But not the case with Barris of course. As the women go off the stage first and then come back on, to guess what their husbands would say and vice versa, with the men secondingly. Then, if you get the right answer, it gives you five points during the first round. Ten pounds the second round. Leading to the 25-point bonus question at the end where the couple with the most points, win a prize and was that show's winner. BTW, it debut when Password fans were upset over the Vietnam War and a news conference by a White House official. That they flocked to the Newlywed Game on July 11th 1966. And the rest they say...is history!
