Newlywed Game Goes Gay
The Newlywed Game, which originally ran on ABC from 1966 to 1974 has always been groundbreaking the show was one of the first to feature African American couples on with white couples starting in their first season, and helped break down the color barriers on daytime television

And was one of the first shows to really talk about sex with making whoopee, the euphemism that producers used for sexual intercourse in order to get around the 1960s network censors.

Now the Game Show Network, in updated version of this venerable favorite, currently being produced by Michael Davies (Who Wants to Be a Millionaire) and his production company, Embassy Row, is planning to break ground again and this time feature same-sex couples whose marriages are legally recognized by their state as contestants

This revived version of THE NEWLYWED GAME, is sponsored by, who coincidently was successfully sued by a gay couple in New Jersey earlier this year for violating that states anti-discrimination laws and ended up creating a whole new LGBT dating site as part of the settlement in that case.

Wow! I guess you have arrived when you get to be on a game show and be just as silly and vapid as the straight contestants. :eyes:

2. And yet, there are gay couples who could not be on this show
as their unions are not recognized, and even OUTLAWED in many states.
