Dear God, say it ain't so!!!!!

Carnie Wilson is going to host an all-new version of The Newlywed Game.

GO AWAY, CARNIE!!!! PLEASE!!!!! GO AWAY!!!!!!!!!

I decided to come right here and protest this grand injustice on the thread for The Newlywed Game and.......................

WE DON'T HAVE ONE!!!!!!!!!

Ok folks, it's time to debate whether this new version is going to be horrible, or just plain dumb.

And don't forget to show some love for the classic version, and especially to show some love for Bob "Makin' Whoopee" Eubanks.

And what exactly did that woman say when Bob asked her, "What was the weirdest place where you had sex?"

Did Bob really say the word "sex" instead of "whoopee"?

I think the question was "Where's the most unusual place you've had the urge to make whoopee?" (I don't think they ever said "have sex" during the first run of the series. Maybe the Paul Rodriguez version, but I never saw that one.)

The wife's answer: "In the butt."

Another favorite: "Complete the sentence: My husband is a closet (what?)"

Wife's answer: "Queen." And he's a burly guy with a buzz cut, looks like a retired linebacker, sounds like Archie Bunker. The best part: this couple had zero points, answered the final question right while the other three couples got theirs wrong, and they won the "grand prize chosen especially for you".

And can we have a confirmation that there were three other "grand prizes" for the other couples waiting backstage if one of them had won? I didn't think so. ;-{)}

The idea of Carnie hosting is lousy. Where's Todd Newton when you need him? Even if he hosted, I can't imagine the show working because it will probably end up more vulgar than risque. It happened with new versions of "Match Game" and "Hollywood Squares", and it'll happen here.

I heard it was "in the ass"(bleeped, of course).

And can we have a confirmation that there were three other "grand prizes" for the other couples waiting backstage if one of them had won? I didn't think so. ;-{)}


Supposedly, during the selection process, each couple was asked what they wanted to win, so they just chose four couples for each episode who wanted the same thing.

And as far as I know, it's always been "whoopee." (Now watch me be wrong.:) )

Girls, tell me, where specifically, is the weirdest place that you, personally, girls, have ever gotten the urge to make whoopee?

My husband is a closet (what?)
(Sound quality is bad, but you can watch all of the Berg's here.)

and here's some others:

What would your husband say is his favorite condiment?

Would your husband say that he is basically more urban or rural?

You can sometimes tell that Bob just likes having fun with these contestants and that made him a great host.

Just wanted to see what anyone else thought about the new episodes. They are alright I guess. I like when the goldyweds come back to play.

I can't believe they still say Whoopee though!

Carnie works well, believe it or not. She is a good replacement for Bob, and really has a lot of fun.

The contestant do make the show, though. I have NEVER heard Australia used the way one contestant used it for an answer on the show.

I have not seen the new show yet, but just saw a commercial last night. Do all of the answer cards have "eHarmony" on the bottom? I hate that.

It's horribly dumb...and boring. Instead of eharmony being the sponsor, Ambien should sponsor it. This program and Ambien are both sure cures for insomnia.

Have some of the "Goldyweds" (in this version) been on the show more than once in the final round?

I can't compare this show to an older show because I never watched it before. But from the few shows I've seen, I'd like to see it end as soon as possible. It borders on pornography, and I don't think that's funny.

I agree with all the posters. The show borders on porn. The questions are designed so that the couple will answer in that way. I hope no children are watching if that's what they think all newly weds are doing. Every question is either about another boyfriend or girlfriend or how they have sex etc. It was a bad show a long time ago, and it still is.

I'm not trying to start a fight at all...but Newlywed is one of those shows that frankly, is not for the kids. Wouldn't it just make sense to not let the kids watch it? It does have the appropo rating in place for it.

And I've watched eps from all versions- Eubanks, Rodriguez, Kroeger, and Wilson, and most of the questions are pretty PG/PG13 rated.

If it's not for kids, put it on after 10 PM. I guess this kind of talk was really over the top in the 50's or 60's. Now it's just boring and silly. These days, who cares about their sex lives or their ex's?

I used to watch the original back in the day with my parents and nobody thought it was over the top or not for kids back then. Same with stuff like Love American Style. I guess they just figured that the kids wouldn't "get" the racier comments.

I saw a "Bloopers" show of The Newlywed Game and one question was, "where is your husband's favorite place to have sex?"

This brain dead whore said "in the anus" I. Kid. You. Not.

Now anyone with half a brain knows that he was asking, what room is your favorite place to have sex.

I accidentally saw one episode of the new Carnie Wilson version, which is pretty boring, but the sole highlight was a question along the lines of "What's the worst injury your wife has ever received while making whoopee?" or similar, to which the husband replied "A sore jaw?" Hee.

I don't know which is worse. Carnie or the show. I only watched it a few times, and it's still on, usually right in the middle or before or after a show I do watch. The contestants are stupid and so are the questions. Anything for attention.

The Newlywed Game with Bob Eubanks was my favorite show of all time. Thought Bob was really nice looking when he was younger.

One of the couples from the Real Housewives of Orange County is scheduled to be on this show. I guess being in the spotlight for both is addicting. It airs at 6 pm EST and 3 pm PST starting Oct 12th. Here is an excerpt-

"THE NEWLYWED GAME is GSN's modern installment of the classic series showcasing three newly married couples of wide-ranging backgrounds who face off in a series of question rounds. During each round, a spouse attempts to guess his or her mate's answer to questions about their relationship, ranging from the first time they met to the details of their love lives. At the end of the game, the couple with the most correct matches wins exciting prizes."

Orange County is in the 3 pm PST slot - just in time for the little Brady's to learn about the sex lives of their almost 50 y/o parents. NICE!

I could only watch for about ten minutes. The stage looks like it was designed on a $200 budget and it's just plain stupid. Hope kids that are home alone after school don't have access to this mess. Now days, even if some parents are home and the show is on; no big deal. So ridiculous.

Just saw the special "Wilson Family" episode (Carnie, her sister Wendy, their mother Marilyn and respective spouses as contestants) with guest host, "the legendary Bob Eubanks" ...and what is it about Eubanks that he just makes everything better?

The wacky Wilsons even had Bob face down on the podium at one point.

"If you liked what I did, I'm Bob Eubanks... if you didn't like what I did, I'm Bob Barker!" I liked it, Eub... I liked it.

Well I see another Word Game has been taken off and that girl Carnie has been put in Lingo's place as a Reality Show. (I hate Reality Shows). And furthermore, I can't stand Carnie and I thought her show was horrid.

I thought GSN were for games. I guess it's changing. Too bad. I'll keep watching the games, except for a few of the biggies that on in the evening, which are ridiculous, but the old time word games are leaving my city one by one. I'm not watching any of the new shows anymore, and I'm sure I'm not alone.
