First Run December 20, 1965 – July 6, 1973 (ABC Daytime) October 6, 1966 – January 17, 1970 (ABC primetime) September 10, 1973 – September 1974 (Syndication) Second Run September 4, 1978 – September 1980 (Syndication) Third Run September 15, 1986 – September 8, 1989 (Syndication) Fourth Run September 9, 1996 – September 1999 (Syndication) The Dating Game is an ABC television show.It first aired on December 20, 1965 and was the first of many shows created and packaged by Chuck Barris from the 1960s through the 1980s.

A notable change was that the prospective bachelor/bachelorette knew what the first names of his or her potential dates were at all times.

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.

ABC dropped the show on July 6, 1973, but it continued in syndication for another year (1973–1974) as The New Dating Game.

The program was revived three additional times in syndication afterwards.

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.

In another variation of the final year in reruns, there were some episodes from ABC daytime, ABC primetime and syndicated weekly. (unrelated to the 1959 band, The Regents, famous for their song "Barbara Ann").

Some of the celebrities that appeared on The Dating Game appeared as a bachelor or bachelorette before becoming famous or a special guest star include: The show used many popular music from its time ranging from Tijuana Brass music from the 1960s, to pop music used for celebrity guest and band appearances. Later on, during 1966, the show used recorded music, with the main theme provided by The Mariachi Brass, featuring trumpeter Chet Baker.

Serial killer Rodney Alcala's episodes were shown during his murder spree and after he had been convicted of rape in California.

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, Jay North, and Paul Lynde.

The 1986 revival was hosted by Elaine Joyce for its first season and Jeff Mac Gregor for its remaining two seasons.
