'90s shows that need to make a comeback
"I am very excited to be working with TV Land, Electus, and the legendary Peter Funt on the newest incarnation of the original feel good reality show, Candid Camera," Bialik said in a statemtnt. "Since I was a child, I have found it impossible to not smile when I hear, 'Smile! You're on Candid Camera!' and I am honored and tickled pink to get to be a part of this amazing franchise."
Candid Camera started as a radio show in 1947 before moving to television via ABC in 1948 as a hidden-camera show. It would later move to NBC and CBS, bouncing from network to network and back again. Its most recent revival aired on Pax from 2001 to 2004.
