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.
When the show was revived with a different format in 1996, Brad Sherwood was named as its host.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.Certain kinds of questions were "off-limits", such as name, age, occupation, and income.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.This format saw the players choose a potential date based on how good they looked and another based on personality.
To determine the "looks" portion, the bachelor/bachelorette observed their potential dates (another change not seen on any Dating Game series beforehand) for several seconds; the three players wore noise-cancelling headphones so they could not hear what the bachelor/bachelorette was saying about them and they identified by numbers.
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.
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.
