The Newlywed Game is returning to TV with Carnie Wilson as host. GSN made the announcement today that the first of 40 episodes will premiere April 6. Making the resurrection of the game show even sweeter, this little update: “an all-new bonus round where the winning couple challenges a ‘Goldywed couple’ (a couple that appeared on an original episode fromthe 1960s through 1990s series who have remained married ever since).” That could be the cutest thing I’ve ever heard, and a great way to show classic clips like the one below. (I know the word “classic” is thrown around a lot, but seriously…).
Wilson should be a great host of The Newlywed Game because she herself has no boundaries: The first and only time I met her, she shared that she and her husband were trying for another child and that she was ovulating that day. I think after Fox’s Moment of Truth, we’d all welcome a return to a kinder, gentler, how-well-do-you-know-your-spouse show. Anyone else plan on tuning in for this?
