Original dating game tv show
The Newlywed Game, by contrast, another Barris show, had recently married couples competing to answer questions about each other's preferences.
The questions were written in advance by the producers.
The genre waned for a while but it was later revived by The New Dating Game and the UK version Blind Date, and the original shows were popular in reruns, unusual for any game show.
Cable television revived some interest in these shows during the 1980s and 1990s, and eventually new shows began to be made along the old concepts.
A Board Game based on the 1986 version was released by Pressman in 1987.
