TV Series
    (December 20, 1965-September 1999)
    Aired on ABC (1965-73) and in syndication (1973-74,1978-80,1986-89,1996-2000)
    Hosted by Jim Lange (1965-80), Elaine Joyce (1986-87), Jeff MacGregor (1987-89), Brad Sherwood (1996-97) and Chuck Woolery (1997-99)
    Created by Chuck Barris
    Premise: A bachelorette asks three bachelors questions, then picks one to go with on a date paid by the show
    Sometimes roles were reversed with a bachelor questioning three bachelorettes
    In 'Confessions of a Dangerous Mind,' Barris claimed the show was a cover for his CIA activities.
    The questions the contestants asked were prescripted.
    In some episodes, the contestant making the pick was a celebrity who should have been capable of getting dates on their own.
    The later versions of the show kept tinkering with the basic formula.
    It allowed serial killer Rodney Alcala on as a bachelor even though he was a registered sex offender (1978).
    It frequently aired in tandem with Barris' next big success, The Newlywed Game.
    Its format was copied by other shows, such as Love Connection.
    It used Herb Alpert songs for its musical cues, notably 'Spanish Flea' for introducing the bachelors and 'Whipped Cream' for the bachelorettes.
    It ranked #28 on TV Guide's list of the greatest game shows.
    At the end of each episode, the host and the winning contestants would blow a kiss to the viewers.
