The 1986 revival was hosted by Elaine Joyce for its first season and Jeff Mac Gregor for its remaining two seasons.When the show was revived with a different format in 1996, Brad Sherwood was named as its host.Before becoming famous, Farrah Fawcett, Suzanne Somers, Yvonne Craig, Lindsay Wagner, Leif Garrett, Tom Selleck and Lee Majors appeared as contestants on the show in the 1960s and early 1970s.Other contestants who appeared before becoming famous included The Carpenters, Jackson Bostwick, Michael Richards, Joanna Cameron, Andy Kaufman (who went under the pseudonym Baji Kimran), Steve Martin, Burt Reynolds, John Ritter, Phil Hartman, Jennifer Granholm (Governor of Michigan from 2003–2010), Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Alex Kozinski.One standard trademark was that at the end of each episode, the host and winning contestants would blow a kiss to the viewers.Generally the bachelorette would ask questions written in advance on cards to each of the three hidden bachelors.ABC dropped the show on July 6, 1973, but it continued in syndication for another year (1973–1974) as The New Dating Game.
After the game ended the bachelor/bachelorette chose one panelist based on looks and one based on personality, then was prompted to choose either of the two.
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.
For the first season of the 1996 revival, The Dating Game used a different format.
A notable change was that the prospective bachelor/bachelorette knew what the first names of his or her potential dates were at all times.
