After all her experience talking to Whoopi, Sherri Shepherd could soon begin asking married couples where they like to make whoopee.

Shepherd will be the host when “The Newlywed Game” makes its return to television Nov. 1 on GSN, replacing Carnie Wilson. The Daytime Emmy-winning co-host of “The View” will begin taping 65 episodes of the weeknight series, which is moving production from New York to Los Angeles, in September.

“Sherri’s quick wit and energy will make her a great fit for ‘The Newlywed Game,’ ” said GSN senior programming veep Kelly Goode. “She has a big personality and is outspoken about relationships—plus, she can find the humor in any situation.”

Shepherd’s acting credits include “30 Rock,” “Precious,” “Everybody Loves Raymond” and of course “Sherri.”
