Trivia

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". See more »

I have not seen this version but I have seen renditions of this show. Questions that are asked are always something LIKE: "How often do you and your partner have sex?" "On what day of the week do you normally have sex?" stuff like that that NO ONE needs to know, let alone get paid to talk about! My Mom also hated it since a gay couple was once on and they kissed whenever agreeing on an answer-that doesn't bother me too much now but still-that could bother some people. Don't watch The Newlywed Game-it's just dirty questions.
