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.
Jim Lange hosted The Dating Game for its entire ABC network run and the 19 syndicated editions.
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".
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.
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.
When chosen, a new statement replaced the old statement and the potential date explained the reason why that fact pertained to them.
However at least 25 daytime episodes survive, including one with John Ritter as the bachelor from 1967. The remaining versions of the show, which were made for ABC prime-time and for syndication, are assumed to exist in their entirety.
After the version finale in 1980, The Dating Game with the repeats of the 1978-1980 version was seen on Los Angeles TV Station KHJ-TV (now KCAL-TV) Channel 9 from September 26, 1983 to September 12, 1986, as well as some other cities.
In several weeks of episodes that aired at various times throughout the season, another format was used.The same question could be asked to multiple bachelors. The bachelorette would make her choice based solely on the answers to her questions.Occasionally, the contestant was a bachelor who would ask questions to three bachelorettes.In the case the bachelor/bachelorette chose the same person for both looks and personality, they won a cash prize of 0.The ABC daytime episodes are believed to have been erased after broadcast, as was the standard practice with network daytime programs prior to the late 1970s.
One standard trademark was that at the end of each episode, the host and winning contestants would blow a kiss to the viewers.
