The 1986 revival was hosted by Elaine Joyce for its first season and Jeff Mac Gregor for its remaining two seasons.
A notable change was that the prospective bachelor/bachelorette knew what the first names of his or her potential dates were at all times.In the case the bachelor/bachelorette chose the same person for both looks and personality, they won a cash prize of $500.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.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.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.
The statement round was used to determine the "personality" portion.
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.
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".
