See full summary » One of the classic game shows created by Chuck Barris.
In this show, a single woman would be given a choice of three bachelors whom she could talk with, but not see.
Nowadays the sense of a good relationship or a companionship is lost.
Deeply looking at the relations of the couples today, there is nothing to see. Relationships are so shallow and depending on one's own personal satisfaction needs.
The twist: Using old-school matchmaking techniques and complex algorithms, dating experts have paired the housemates with their supposed “ideal” mates, but neither the cast nor the viewers know the matches.
The housemates themselves have to figure out the “true love” couplings by undertaking a bunch of elaborate activities.
The Dating Game was surely the inspiration for several other shows and today's most popular reality dating shows which tinkered with its structure to reflect the changes in societal attitudes toward sex.
For instance, after choosing their date, contestants on "Love Connection(1983-99)" and "Studs(1991-93)" would return to the program to relay the details of what did happen on their date.
This show has screened all over the world's most watched TV channels till 2000s.
In early 1990s' under the title "Saklambaç", it was also introduced in Turkey, as well; thanks to the unforgettable episodes with the host Nurseli Idiz.
In the early 1970s, a grown up Jay North, child star of Dennis the Menace (1959) on TV, appeared on the show.
Roles were reversed; North asked questions and chose a date from three eligible "bachelorettes".
After asking them a series of questions, she would chose which one to go on a date with.
