On "The New Newlywed Game", Bob accidentally says "25-point boner question".On the UK's version of the "Feud", a contestant answers the first three fast-money questions "Turkey! On "Match Game", a contestant almost said retarded when she actually meant retired.The Newlywed Game TV show was a 30 minute game show on ABC where couples who had been married less than one year were asked questions about each other while the other one was off stage. Announcer (1966-1974 / 1977-1980) Rod Roddy .................. Secretary of State Robert Mc Namara gave a press conference that evening and both CBS and NBC chose to air it while ABC ran the premiere of the Newlywed Game.Often those questions were very personal in nature and the answers that each contestants partner gave were often surprising or even shocking to them. That resulted in one of TV's most watched premieres with ratings nearly as huge as the Superbowl and the show gained a tremendous following! (Laughs) Hank: (Laughs at the top of his lungs) Bob Eubanks appeared on the new version of "I've Got A Secret" in 2001.They should have toned down the smut and showed some clips that are actually tasteful.
The most classic bits were: Family Feuds Richard Dawson-"Name the month a woman begins to look pregnant."Contestants answer-"September!The couple whose responses matched up the most won a prize that was often a trip or furniture. Host (1966-1980 / 1985-1988 / 1997-1998) Paul Rodriguez ............. The Newlywed Game became so popular that it literally destroyed the ratings of CBS's long running game show "Password" which was canceled just 14 months later! what I'm talking about is the weirdest location, the weirdest place ... His secret was that he worked as Dolly Parton's agent during the 1960s and the 1970s. The Vietnam war was escalating at that time and just five days earlier Hanoi Radio had reported that downed American pilots were being marched through the streets of Hanoi through angry crowds.The show wisely pays tribute to the glory days of game shows (the '70's) with priceless moments from "Match Game" and "Family Feud" (the clip in which Richard Dawson cracks up is just too funny.) Those were the days and the more contemporary clips pale wildly in comparison.I have shown the tape of this show to friends and literally tears are streaming from the laughs.
