Blossom, Big Bang Theory Star Hosting Candid Camera; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of July 28, 2014)

Mayim Bialik

TV Land announced that Emmy(R) Award nominee Mayim Bialik (Blossom, The Big Bang Theory) will host TV Land's new original version of Candid Camera alongside executive producer and long-time host Peter Funt, son of the show's creator and first host, Allen Funt. As we first broke, the series will premiere on TV Land on Monday, August 11 at 8pm, with original episodes also airing Tuesday, August 12; Wednesday, August 13; and Thursday, August 14 at 8pm. Candid Camera will begin airing in its regular time slot on Tuesdays at 8pm on August 19th. Encore episodes can be seen throughout the week at 8pm. Be on the lookout for the cameras! Candid Camera's crew is all over the country taping now, having already visited cities such as Chicago, IL and Norwalk, CT, and even The Big Apple, where actress Megan Hilty (Smash) and Hot 97 DJ Peter Rosenberg helped pull gags on unsuspecting New Yorkers and delivering the iconic line, "Smile, you're on 'Candid Camera!'"

Before reality television even had a name, the original series introduced the hidden camera concept to television in 1948, and Candid Camera continued in several iterations over the course of more than 50 years. The landmark series concealed cameras to capture the reactions of ordinary people being confronted with unusual and often challenging situations. On August 11, after influencing generations of television programs, the gold standard returns.


It's Friday, so it is time for "Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows" for the coming week. This is where we list what sitcom stars are appearing on talk shows for the coming week, the stars are both current and past sitcom stars, so this is for all sitcom fans of all eras!
