"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.

Sharon Osbourne says she's sorry she told the women on "The View" that they could go [bleep] themselves. But we're guessing she's probably not sorry for all the PR her comments and subsequent apology have generated. And that's why lately "The Talk" has been coming out ahead of its archrival in the daytime talk wars. The controversy started when Osbourne told Arsenio Hall this week that while Barbara Walters is "divine," the rest of "The View" panelists -- that would be Whoopi Goldberg, Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd -- could go do something unnatural to themselves (expressed in more salty language)

On Sunday, Miley Cyrus became the latest in a long line of young women to take to the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards with the express purpose of stirring up controversy. And so far, the media have obediently complied, clutching their pearls en masse over her raunchy but otherwise mediocre performance -- one that made Britney Spears' snake-dancing seem like high art by comparison. With "The View" in repeats this week, however, the predictable chorus of outrage has been lacking a few critical voices.

When, exactly, did Sherri Shepherd become an icon of the multi-platform, multimedia age? And does she get residuals? A co-host of "The View," the author of a book and now the star of her own Lifetime series, Shepherd has taken her hard-knock past, infidelity-plagued marriage and gift of gab and created a cottage industry of self-revelation. For years, Shepherd was a professional sitcom guest star, most recently on "30 Rock." Then she became an official lady of "The View," acting as self-appointed surrogate for working mothers, wronged women, born-again Christians and the factually challenged.

Sherri Shepherd is not afraid to use her pain for a laugh. In July, "The View" co-host got her first Brazilian wax on camera, and this week, Lifetime premieres "Sherri," a semiautobiographical comedy she stars in about her life after a messy divorce. Her next project, the Sundance film "Precious," will be released in November. It's been three years since you joined "The View." Have you recovered from telling Barbara Walters that you didn't know if the Earth was round or flat?

The Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance held its sixth annual Comedy for a Cure fundraiser last Sunday at the Music Box Theatre in Hollywood. 6.

And then there were five. Comedian Sherri Shepherd officially joined ABC's "The View" on Monday, filling the seat vacated by Star Jones Reynolds last year. "Well, this is the worst-kept secret," said Barbara Walters, the daytime talk show's co-executive producer, as she introduced Shepherd to the cheering audience. "Oh my gosh, I'm actually one the girls!" exclaimed a beaming Shepherd, who has been a guest host on the program nearly two dozen times.

The new prime-time season features several funny comedies. NBC's "Emeril" is not close to being one of them. With renowned super-chef Emeril Lagasse playing himself (not very well, curiously) as the star of a TV cooking show, this is sitcom anorexia, a thudding half-hour of broad nonsense from "Designing Women" creators Linda Bloodworth and Harry Thomason. What were they thinking?
