Want to know Bachelor Number One’s idea of the perfect date? Think you’ve got your new spouse all figured out? Those are the burning questions the Game Show Network (GSN) aims to answer with its modernized revival of two game show classics; The Dating Game and The Newlywed Game.
Starting in 1966 on ABC, The Newlywed Game has enjoyed multiple runs that have spanned the 60′s, 70′s, 80′s, and 90′s. Most incarnations were hosted by Bob Eubanks whose dry, quick humor proved a perfect foil for flustered contestants trying to guess how their spouses had answered purposely suggestive questions.
The Dating Game launched in 1965 on ABC and enjoyed several runs through the 60′s, 70′s and 80′s as well. Dating Game was presented by a number of hosts over the years, most notably Jim Lange. Like Dating Game, slyly worded questions were used to produce hilarious responses as contestants interviewed potential suitors.
