Married by America was a reality show broadcast from March 3, 2003 to April 14, 2003 on Fox.

In the show's short time on the air, it managed to drum up a great amount of controversy over its racy content; one affiliate in North Carolina dropped the show after two episodes, and the show later received a $1.18 million FCC fine over an episode which contained explicit footage of whipped cream being licked off a stripper's breasts and a man being caressed by strippers. (The fine was dropped in 2012.)

The show also dealt with a contestant who was revealed to have been already married after the first episode had aired; in the end, none of the couples on the show ended up married, making the show a failure.

This show has never been rebroadcast or released on home video, nor have any full episodes turned up online. However, a few select clips are online; the one linked is of the opening of the premiere of the show, and another that can be found online is on a Parents Television Council compilation of "worst clips" (not linked here due to graphic content), which features footage of the stripper scenes.
