The winning spouse receives a billboard in his or her hometown with their picture stating they were right, for all the world to see. The winning husband or wife, judged to be the rightest of the right by the celebrity judges, receives an all expense paid cruise.

The show is produced by Jerry Seinfield and features a variety of well known comic personalities to be the judges each week.
