yeah yeah terrific...why did they have to make the only gay couple on the show a celebrity couple?

also I watched the show tonight...and NOW on the cards the contestants write their answers on....when they flip them over they have "E-Harmony"written all over the back.
Are you kidding me?..E-Harmony who just got sued for being so blatantly homophobic?

WTF Newlywed game?

A similar show has be airing in Europe for at least four years. Look at the plus side, the celebrity couple appears to me as a plug from the industry, as well as, a plug for an entity trying to mend its ways. In Europe, contestants wear "Brand Names" of every stripe. Let's move gayly forward because before long...our rainbow will meld into something seen only after a mainstream storm.

hmmm maybe this will give the Newlywed Game a NEW LIFE - Carney Wilson is "Ok" as hostess....but it "lacks" the Umph it used to have...also, the show is too quiet...where's the intro music,and the music that takes it into commercials etc?..and the announcer's voice...when you win "A Grand Prize chosen especially for you" .....I'll def. watch with mixed cpls.

I hear that they{Hollywood Producers}, want an all-gay reality show.Probably sick of all of the heterosexuals going on these reality shows,only to get divorced a few months later.
