"The Newlywed Game" is renewing its TV vows. Episodes of the veteran game show that pits newly married couples against each other are being revived on Bounce TV, which is geared toward African Americans. The series, which first premiered on ABC in 1965, has been on and off the air on various networks and in syndication since its launch. These episodes were previously produced for the Game Show Network. But founding host Bob Eubanks, the personality most identified with the show, will not be along for the ride this go-round.

Remember who was playing second base for the Dodgers 45 years ago Sunday? If you said John Lennon, you're close. All the Beatles played the infield that night, on a stage set up at second base, draped in blue and white, of course. Yes, Sunday is the 45th anniversary of the "bigger-than-Jesus" Beatles at Dodger Stadium, the first concert in the history of the gleaming 4-year-old ballpark. The third-place Dodgers were off playing the first-place Giants in San Francisco on the day "Nowhere Man" rang out across Chavez Ravine.

Eubanks Apologizes: Speaking of "Roger and Me," television personality Bob Eubanks has issued a statement of regret for an offensive joke about Jews and AIDS he tells in the documentary film. Eubanks was preparing to be filmed by director Roger Moore in Flint, Mich., where Eubanks is a native son, when he told a tasteless gag to the film's crew. Eubanks reputedly never knew the crew had the joke on tape until someone who had seen the film told him it was part of the movie.
