The dating game tv
The 1986 revival was originally hosted by comedienne Elaine Joyce, who was replaced by Jeff Mac Gregor after its first season.
The 1996 series was originally hosted by Brad Sherwood, who was replaced by Chuck Woolery following a return to the series' classic format.
It had some pretty strong competition from "My Three Sons" on CBS and "Star Trek" on NBC but it was a "fun" show and audiences loved it!
The future Federal Judge Alex Kozinski appeared on it and was selected as a "date". Some contestants appeared even after they were fairly well known, including a young Michael Jackson, Ron Howard, Maureen Mc Cormick, Barry Williams, Sally Field, Richard Dawson, and Paul Lynde.

My dad passed away in 1984 and I would love to be able to show my kids their grandfather.
Then the chooser would decide how important those two traits were to them and that would determine who became the date.
Unfortunately, looks almost always won and that probably didn't make viewers (who mostly didn't look like fashion models) very happy so the show died an early death.
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.
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, a co-worker or a relative of theirs.
One standard trademark was that at the end of each episode, the host and winning contestants would blow a kiss to the viewers.
