Dating in the dark show

The format of Barris's first dating show, The Dating Game, which commenced in 1965, put an unmarried man behind a screen to ask questions of three women who are potential mates, or one woman who asked questions of three men.The person behind the screen could hear their answers and voices but not see them during the gameplay, although the audience could see the contestants.The Newlywed Game, by contrast, another Barris show, had recently married couples competing to answer questions about each other's preferences.The couple who knew each other the best would win the game; sometimes others got divorced.The first gay version of these more realistic shows to receive mainstream attention was Boy Meets Boy, with a format similar to that of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.The show featured an unusual plot twist: eight of the men from the show's original dating pool were actually heterosexual men pretending to be homosexual; one important part of the plot was whether the gay contestant would be able to recognize the heterosexual men.

But any social situation has the potential to result in romance, especially work.As the 2000s progressed, the ratings for many of these shows began to decline, a situation exacerbated by the Super Bowl XXXVIII halftime show controversy in 2004 as production companies out of fear of being imposed with monetary penalties by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for indecent content began self-censoring their dating shows (and many syndicated programs targeted at the 18-49 demographic, in general) to levels in which even profanities typically permissible on television were edited out of episodes.Since then, the dating game show has virtually died off from television syndication, though cable television networks such as VH1 have continued to air dating shows with content similar to that of the syndicated dating shows of the late 1990s and early 2000s and major over-the-air broadcast networks have tried, often with marginal success, to use dating shows that are less risque compared to those shows.In shows involving couples, there is a substantial incentive to break up any of the existing relationships.In shows involving singles, there is a mismatch of numbers ensuring constant competition.

This creates the action, tension and humiliation when someone is rejected.
