SEASON(S): 2 (20 episodes, 0 of which have yet to air)
ADDITIONAL NOTES: confirmed as canceled on 5/13/12
DESCRIPTION: (from NBC's press release, June 2011) NBC's "The Marriage Ref" (Sundays 10-11 PM ET) begins its all-new and improved second season on Sunday, June 26, with comedian Tom Papa back in the center of the action where he serves as host. Papa was personally chosen by returning executive producer, Jerry Seinfeld. In this funny and revealing comedy panel series, real-life married couples take center stage as their quirky, funny, and relatable disputes are explored, examined -- and ultimately judged. For the sophomore run of "The Marriage Ref," couples will appear in-studio and face a panel of "experts" composed of top celebrities and comedians who will weigh in and decide which spouse is right. The goal is to give couples something they have always wanted but have never had - a clear winner. At the end of each episode, the studio audience will vote to make one of the winners "The Rightest of The Right." That person will receive $25,000 and their very own billboard, in their hometown, declaring they are right.
