Storyline

"The Newlywed Game" is among the most enduring game shows of the genre. This 1985 five-day-a-week syndicated revival of the classic game show, again hosted by Eubanks, sported a new set, but with no other notable changes. The rules remained the same as in previous versions four couples, each married less than two years, answered a series of questions designed to expose how well the spouses knew (or didn't know) each other. The husbands were asked a series of questions while their wives were secluded offstage. The wives returned and answered the same questions; matches were worth 5 points each. As before, incorrect answers usually led to full-scale fights and verbal assaults (with Eubanks and the audience not making things any easier). The process was repeated with the wives answering the questions and the husbands herded offstage; questions were now worth 10 points. A final bonus question (usually general, first posed to the wives) was worth 25 points. The couple with the highest ... Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

A game show not about money or winning?
9 December 1999 | by MI$ gUySee all my reviews

When watching The Newlywed Game, I could care less who wins and how much they win. This game show is just funny. The reason people watch this game show is to see how the husband will embarrass the wife (and vice versa). It didn't take a genius to invent this show, but it is very entertaining. The only difference between the different versions of this show is that Bob Eubanks slowly gets balder and balder throughout the years. (i think he might have been born balding though).
