Here Come the Newlyweds

Here come the newlyweds first episode

Throw , The Newlywed Game and those gag-inducing eHarmony commercials into a blender and what do you get? You get ABC’s new “romantic comedy” reality show, . ABC already airs Wife Swap, Supernanny and The Bachelor—did we really need yet another show to convince skittish singles to flee into the woods?

The premise of Here Come the Newlyweds is fairly straightforward. Seven recently married couples live together and compete for a nest egg worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. The season will air over six episodes. As ABC’s website claims, “Each couple faces a variety of mental and physical challenges which will test the love and passion they have for one another as well as their competitive spirit.”  At the end of each episode, one couple is voted out by the others. The last marriage standing wins the grand prize.
