The night of "The Newlywed Game" scheduled premiere, July 11, 1966, TV networks CBS and NBC aired US Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara. ABC, chose to air the premiere of "The Newlywed Game" instead and most of America's viewers chose to watch it instead and the premiere had ratings to rival the Superbowl. ABC, which up until the time had been struggling badly in the ratings and profitability, was greatly improved with the success of "The Newlywed Game".
