Bravo Media puts a ring on it... in the new year with a 90-minute premiere of the docu-series "Newlyweds: The First Year" on Sunday, January 3 at 9pm ET/PT. Documenting the trials, tribulations and triumphs of newlyweds during the entire first year of marriage, season three follows four new couples - Rochelle and Rob Brann, Erica and Adonis Gladney, Brandon Liberati and Craig Ramsay and Tara and Rob Radcliffe. From difficult in-laws to fertility struggles and adultery, these couples put love to the test in each compelling, hour-long episode. Although the journeys of the couples' paths never cross, their stories offer a common thread that exposes the true joys and challenges of married life.

The Newlyweds premiere show is pretty engaging--especially without the fake fights and forced drama.New York Post Full Review
The sincerity of the enterprise is in inverse proportion to its fun. [13 May 2013, p.49]People Weekly Full Review
At least in the early stages, though, the show feels reasonably legitimate, and introduces us to characters who are neither appalling nor boring.New York Daily News Full Review
Instead of mining the opportunity to expand its view of a meaty topic, Newlyweds falls back on the sort of bad habits that can ruin a relationship (made-for-TV or otherwise), and far from being fabulous in its design, has instead recycled Bravo’s same old pattern.Variety Full Review
Spontaneity is scripted; hopes and dreams are meant to be crushed; the woeful are exalted; characters are unsympathetic.Wall Street Journal Full Review
