" 1987-1989 Spiel: "Welcome to THE ALL NEW DATING GAME! The Dating Game (also known as The New Dating Game and The All-New Dating Game) is the long-running dating game show where one girl or one guy had to choose between three batchelors or batchelorettes to go out on a date for which the producers pay.

Generally the bachelorette would ask a series of questions to each of the three hidden bachelors.

Certain kinds of questions such as name, age, occupation, and income cannot be asked. The bachelorette would make her choice based solely on the answers to her questions.

After making her choice, the bachelorette met the two unchosen bachelors before meeting the chosen one.

During a part of the first season, in addition to asking the questions, the bachelor/bachelorette got to see all three contestants at the outset of the game (who all had headphones on so they couldn't hear what their potential date was saying about them), and would pick who they thought was the best looking of the bunch.Instead of asking questions, the single man or woman selected their date based on the person's appearance and personality.TV game shows have entertained viewers for years with everything from trivia questions to reality competitions – read on for our picks of the 25 greatest game shows of all time.Hosted by super cheeseball Marc Summers (he of the Cosby sweaters), kids were put through their paces with trivia questions and physical challenges.
