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. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Trivia

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.
