Sweethearts is an American television game show based on the British series of the same name which aired from September 12, 1988 to September 8, 1989. The show was syndicated throughout the United States by Multimedia Entertainment.

Charles Nelson Reilly was the host. Richard Kline guest-hosted.


A sort of combination of The Dating/Newlywed Game and To Tell the Truth. Three couples each with a different story on how they met faced a panel of three celebrities, two of them were false, the other was telling the truth. Each couple came out one at a time, then each panelist asked the couple in control questions for an unlimited amount of time.

When all the couples were grilled then the panel voted on which couple's story was true. Each incorrect vote was worth $500 to the couples, and fooling the panel completely won the real couple a big trip.

Among the celebrities who appeared were, Sally Struthers, Tony Orlando, Zsa Zsa Gabor, McLean Stevenson, Phyllis Diller, Tom Poston, and Richard Simmons.[1]
