The Newleywed Game hosted by Bob Eubanks. A show I grew up with and absolutely loved watching on television.

One of my all time favorite television shows that I had grew
up watching, was the original "Newleywed Game", hosted
by Bob Eubanks.
I was born in 1962, and the show itself, made it's debut
in the year of 1966. Although I was too young to actually
understand the show when I was a kid during the 1960's,
I vaguely remember watching the original daytime
Newleywed  Game with my Mother and Grandmother,
and all having a good laugh together in the living room.
The Newleywed Game was a fun, interactive, live game
show , where sometimes funny or sometimes embarrassing
things would happen on air, with the newly married couples
that were contestants on this game show.
I would watch the later versions of this show, hosted by
Bob Eubanks, during the 1970's and 80's, and would
still always enjoy a good laugh.
I have been married ten years now, and If my wife Cheryl
and I would have appeared on that show...who knows?
I might have got smacked in the head with the answer card. L.O.L!
I have a wonderful wife, and happy memories of growing
up watching the original Newleywed Game show too.
Here is the Newleywed Game television theme song, just
