Look closely and you can see that Jessica's pole-vaulting double is a man in a wig, who not only looks nothing like her but is roughly 100 pounds heavier than she is. See more »

Good entertainment!

Despite my apprehensions before watching the show for the first time, I was pleasantly surprised. Nick and Jessica work well as a team and the show really is what it says it is; variety. One show I watched had everything from the Muppets to Kenny Rogers to Mr.T with many musical numbers and comedy sketches as well as some bloopers and out-takes.

I know a lot of people would like to dismiss Jessica as a bimbo (and after watching several episodes of Newlyweds I can sort of see why) however I think she is smarter than she gets credit for, and her comedic timing and talent are undeniable.

If you don't like their singing, wait around for a minute and you'll get to see comedy and mindless jokes. There is something for everyone. I plan on watching again!
