Smile. You're on candid camera. It's a phrase that's timeless. It's been with us for over 50 years. Candid camera is coming back. A brand new series updated for the times. It's hosted by Mya and peter font who's here with us. But first, behind the scenes, and a little surprise for her, too. You just got -- Reporter: Before we were punked or asked what would you do, there was candid camera. Smile, you're on candid camera. Reporter: Now that phrase Allen made famous -- Smile, you're on candid camera. Continuing with a reboot on TV land. Before the preview tonight, Allen's son, peter, invited us on one of his gags. Doing a joke about the bathroom keys at the gas station. You know it's on a ridiculously big object. We decided to put it on a really ridiculously big object. Reporter: We have our subject and move in. I'd like you to smile, you're on the candid camera television show. You know, guys, it's not really the right day for this. It's a joke for TV. Just a joke. Messing with you. I don't find it funny. I don't want to be on television. Okay? No problem. Could I offer you something? Some money or something? No, I don't want any money. That's to rude. Ma'am, ma'am, please. All right, cut. Cut. Rachel, I'm shaking like a leaf here. Are you okay? Let me tell you this, this is Linda gully, a producer at candid camera. Reporter: Looks like the joke's on me. You were so in on it. Come back here. You are on "Candid camera". Reporter: For "Good morning America," Rachel smith, ABC news, Monterey, California. We are delighted to be joined by candid camera co-host, peter. You had Rachel and had people going here with that too. You could be next, robin. Never know. The way you're keeping the family tradition going. That is so important to you and your family. It really is. My dad started this -- now, listen closely, yesterday, August 10th, was the anniversary of the first show in 1948 here on ABC. Wonderful. And the very next day we premier on TV land at 8:00 tonight with the brand new "Candid camera." And it is brand new. Congratulations. I know you said every time it goes away, you're not quite sure if it will come back. But it is something, you know, you put people at ease. You can tell that it's not malicious. It's for fun. In fact that little piece with Rachel is about as far as we go. That's over the top for us. It's gentle humor. We're not out to show people are idiots as some shows try to do. We believe people are great sports and celebrate that. And you celebrate with a wonderful co-host. We know her from b"big bang their theory". She is terrific, beautiful, funny and she's a brainiac. She knows everything. So it's so much fun to be with her. And you brought it to this time with social media and everything. Does it make it harder or easier because there's so much technology now? So much easier. People are easier to fool an ever before, really. So watch out. They're multi-tasking. They are their mind on three different things. They don't pay attention when we step in. It's just easy pickings for us these days. We're going to be -- peter Funt. Wonderful. Best to you and your family. Cannot believe the anniversary. And the new "Candid camera" premiers on TV land tonight. We pulled a gag of our own involving a bear and our audience. Check this out on our website. We did our best. You have to try.
