How 'Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica' Was A 'KUWTK' Run-Through

Before Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica, there was The Osbournes. But just two years after Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson's break-up put an end to the televised honeymoon, there was Keeping Up With The Kardashians. And America's First Family has these early 2000s B-list singers to thank for ushering in an era of relatable celebrity reality TV.

So, on this week's new episode of TV. Watch. Repeat., my co-host Allison Piwowarski and I decided to toast Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica by exploring the history of the series. What was it exactly about the third most-famous boy band frontman and third most-famous pop star that caused a phenomenon, and who were the surprising almost-stars of the series? We get into it all.

So grab your 98 Degrees & Rising CD and enjoy the story of Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica on our latest episode of TV. Watch. Repeat. on Apple, Spotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts. And be sure to check out our other pop culture podcast, Pop Chaser, for all your entertainment headline needs!
