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".The program was originally broadcast in black-and-white, but when a prime-time version began in October 1966, both it and the daytime version were broadcast in color; the daytime version thus became the first ABC daytime series to be broadcast in color on a regular basis.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.After the version finale in 1980, The Dating Game with the repeats of the 1978-1980 version was seen on Los Angeles TV Station KHJ-TV (now KCAL-TV) Channel 9 from September 26, 1983 to September 12, 1986, as well as some other cities.

In several weeks of episodes that aired at various times throughout the season, another format was used.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.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 or for a co-worker or a relative of theirs.Chuck Woolery took over in 1997 when the original format was reinstated and hosted for the last two seasons.
