> Description 
The Dating Game is an ABC television show that first aired in 1965 and was created by Chuck Barris. ABC dropped the show in 1973; all future versions would be syndicated to local stations. It would almost always be aired in tandem with another Barris creation, The Newlywed Game. Typically, a bachelorette would question three bachelors, who were hidden from her view; at the end of the questioning period, she would choose one to go out with on a date paid for by the show. 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, a co-worker, or a relative of theirs. Many celebrities played the game looking for love themselves. Some unknown contestants would later become quite famous (including Suzanne Somers, Farrah Fawcett, Andy Kaufman, Burt Reynolds, Michael Jackson, Sally Field, John Ritter, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Tom Selleck (who went on the show twice and lost each time!). One standard feature was that at the end of each episode the host and winning contestants would blow a kiss to the viewers.
