Sleeping naked: Is it normal or not?

June 5, 2012 at 12:00 PM ET

A new game show called Are You Normal, America? premiered last night on OWN. It's a kind of "Family Feud"-style guessing game of what Americans consider normal behavior. The show sent normalcy experts Kathie Lee and Hoda some sample questions, and they gamely guessed what a regular person might consider weird.

Among the things the ladies considered "Not Normal": sucking a partner's toes, standing someone up on a date, breaking up over the phone. And "Normal?" Love at first sight, skinny-dipping, and, yes, sleeping naked, which is where the survey respondents disagreed.

Kathie Lee and Hoda found this disparity particularly shocking, especially KLG, who copped to wearing nothing to bed but her wedding ring, frequently having to carry her dogs out of the bedroom in the buff.

Her explanation? "I was perimenopausal for a looooooong time."

Julieanne Smolinski is a TODAY.com contributor. She watches the show daily and thus has no concept of normal anymore.
