Tv show about dating
The program was revived three additional times in syndication afterwards.
The first revival premiered in 1978 and ran until 1980, the second ran from 1986 until 1989, and the last ran from 1996 until 1999 with a season of reruns following.
When the show was revived with a different format in 1996, Brad Sherwood was named as its host.
Chuck Woolery took over in 1997 when the original format was reinstated and hosted for the last two seasons.
"Bachelor in Paradise" is in its fourth season, but Jackson and Olympios are no longer contestants.
Chris Mc Carthy, president of MTV, VH1 and Logo said they currently have “no plans” for season four of the dating reality show, but are open to future reboots.
Occasionally, the roles would be reversed with a man questioning three ladies; other times, a celebrity would question three players for a date for themselves or for a co-worker or a relative of theirs.
Instead of asking questions of their potential date, the bachelor/bachelorette was presented with two pun-laden statements, each pertaining to one of the potential dates.
The program was originally broadcast in black-and-white, but when a prime-time version began in October 1966, both it and the daytime version were broadcast in color; the daytime version thus became the first ABC daytime series to be broadcast in color on a regular basis.
Typically, a bachelorette would question three bachelors, who were hidden from her view; at the end of the questioning period, she would choose one to go out with on a date paid for by the show.
Beginning in 1966, The Dating Game was often paired with The Newlywed Game.
This was especially true when the two shows entered syndication; in fact, in 1996 the revivals of both The Dating Game and The Newlywed Game were sold as a package called "The Dating-Newlywed Hour".
