The hidden-camera classic first aired as a radio show called “Candid Microphone” in 1947 before moving to TV. It has come back to life several times since, most recently in 1996 and 2001.

“Candid Camera” will premiere on TV Land on Monday, Aug. 11. That week, a new episode will air Monday through Thursday, with new episodes airing on Tuesdays in following weeks. TV Land has already started touring across the country, visiting such cities as Chicago and New York.
