One standard trademark was that at the end of each episode, the host and winning contestants would blow a kiss to the viewers.
Generally the bachelorette would ask questions written in advance on cards to each of the three hidden bachelors.
The 1986 revival was hosted by Elaine Joyce for its first season and Jeff Mac Gregor for its remaining two seasons.
When the show was revived with a different format in 1996, Brad Sherwood was named as its host.
Instead of asking questions of their potential date, the bachelor/bachelorette was presented with two pun-laden statements, each pertaining to one of the potential dates.
When chosen, a new statement replaced the old statement and the potential date explained the reason why that fact pertained to them.
In the case the bachelor/bachelorette chose the same person for both looks and personality, they won a cash prize of 0.
A notable change was that the prospective bachelor/bachelorette knew what the first names of his or her potential dates were at all times.This format saw the players choose a potential date based on how good they looked and another based on personality.To determine the "looks" portion, the bachelor/bachelorette observed their potential dates (another change not seen on any Dating Game series beforehand) for several seconds; the three players wore noise-cancelling headphones so they could not hear what the bachelor/bachelorette was saying about them and they identified by numbers.This was especially true when the two shows entered syndication; in fact, in 1996 the revivals of both The Dating Game and The Newlywed Game were sold as a package called "The Dating-Newlywed Hour".The program was originally broadcast in black-and-white, but when a prime-time version began in October 1966, both it and the daytime version were broadcast in color; the daytime version thus became the first ABC daytime series to be broadcast in color on a regular basis.
