"HERE COME THE NEWLYWEDS" � AGAIN!
The Hit One-Hour Romantic Comedy Alternative Series Returns to ABC
Nine just-married couples will compete for a nest egg possibly worth hundreds of thousands of dollars to kick-start their new lives together and help them realize their dreams when "Here Come the Newlyweds" returns for a second season on the ABC Television Network.
The one-hour romantic comedy alternative series will again be hosted by comedian Pat Bullard. "Here Come the Newlyweds" is all about relationships, the differences between men and women and the universal issues that every couple must face. The newlyweds are diverse, sexy and competitive.
In this eight-episode series, 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, the field will be narrowed as the newlyweds vote to send one couple home. The stakes get higher as the potential nest egg grows, until one couple ultimately wins the grand prize.
During its freshman season, "Here Come the Newlyweds" ranked No. 1 during Sunday's 10 o'clock hour in Total Viewers (8.1 million) and Adults 18-49 (3.3/9), leading its nearest competition by 50% in the key young adult sales demographic (2.2/6 - NBC). In fact, the ABC unscripted series won its time period among Adults 18-49 on all six of its telecasts.
The executive producers of "Here Come the Newlyweds" are Jay Blumenfield and Tony Marsh ("The Road to Stardom with Missy Elliott," "Dane Cook's Tourgasm"). The series is produced by The Jay and Tony Show in association with Warner Horizon Television.
