‘Candid Camera’ has made viewers smile for several generations, originally debuting in 1948 and seeing several revivals since. On Thursday at Comic Con, TV Land announced that a new version is set to premiere on August 11th with ‘Big Bang Theory’ star, Mayim Bialik, as host.

“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,” Bialik shared.

Peter Funt, son of the show’s creator and host Allen Funt, will be co-hosting along with Bialik.

TV Land also announced that in its first week, a new episode will be airing every night from Monday to Thursday will episodes airing Tuesday evenings thereafter.

‘Candid Camera’ is currently taping across the country, having already visited Chicago and New York City.

While the prank show may not have been threatened by competition when it originally premiered over 60 years ago, ‘Candid Camera’ will now be up against TBS’ ‘Who gets the Last Laugh’ and Lifetime’s ‘Betty White’s Off Their Rockers’.

Let’s hope the nostalgic catchphrase appeals to generations both old and new.
