The Newlywed Game (1996– )
An recent update of the long-running game show, with veteran host Bob Eubanks returning to the show. 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.- Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <firstname.lastname@example.org>
"The Newlywed Game" surfaced again in the mid-1990s. After a year under a modified format that failed (with another host presiding over the proceedings), the show reverted to its tried-but-true format with Eubanks as host. Four married couples, all married less than two years, answered questions about themselves in an effort to win a "second honeymoon." The husbands answered the questions first while their wives were taken offstage. Correct answers were worth 5 points, while incorrect answers led to often-hilarious arguments (with Eubanks often interjecting himself in the quarrels). The process was repeated with the wives answering a series of questions and the husbands taken backstage, correct answers being worth 10 points. A final bonus question (usually general, answered by the wives) was worth 25 points. The couple with the highest point total at the end of the game won the "second honeymoon." Reruns of the 1997 series (as well as all previous incarnations) are aired on Game Show Network.- Written by Brian Rathjen <email@example.com>
