We are constantly faced with attacks on for some time now.

We felt that a temporary shutdown to fix security issues is the only way forward.

"THE DATING GAME" first premiered on December 20-24, 1965 on abc-TV and remained a fixture on the network in both daytime and nighttime incarnations through the rest of the 1960s and well into the 1970s.

Jim Lange, fresh from his announcing duties with Tennessee Ernie Ford stepped through the flower-speckled rotating partitions for the first of many, many times shortly before Christmas 1965. On one side you had 3 bachelors answering questions from a girl on the other side of the partition (each not being able to see the other).

The girl was given a certain amount of time to ask as many questions as she could to the 3 bachelors.More often than not the questions would be of a quirky nature. G.: "If we were marooned on a desert island, what would be the first thing you'd do and why? During a commercial break, the girl would think about which bachelor she'd select.We will try to make this downtime as short as possible.THE DATING GAME was and still is by all accounts, the premiere game show for singles.It was the forerunner for many imitators such as "Love Connection", MTV's "Singled Out" and numerous others.But they all have the same influence: Chuck Barris, the creator of the one that started it all!
