The program was revived three additional times in syndication afterwards.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.Some contestants appeared even after they were fairly well known, including a young Michael Jackson, Dusty Springfield, Ron Howard, Maureen Mc Cormick, Barry Williams, Sally Field, Henry Morgan, Richard Dawson, Jay North, and Paul Lynde.One standard trademark was that at the end of each episode, the host and winning contestants would blow a kiss to the viewers.
Serial killer Rodney Alcala's episodes were shown during his murder spree and after he had been convicted of rape in California.When the original format returned to the syndicated revival in 1997, these rules were readopted but there was more of a variety between bachelors and bachelorettes.For the first season of the 1996 revival, The Dating Game used a different format.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.
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.Occasionally, the roles would be reversed with a man questioning three ladies; other times, a celebrity would question three players for a date for themselves or for a co-worker or a relative of theirs.
