Dating game shows are entertainment-based shows that utilize a range of matchmaking systems and services to create a game with explicit rules. The matchmaking process only comes into play when selecting contestants who join the show primarily for entertainment purposes, rather than compatibility or happiness. The contestants themselves know little or nothing about each other and are brought together through the game, which may involve sharing a photo or meeting the basic participation criteria (generally being unmarried).
There are various dating shows on television, each employing different formats and rules designed to entertain viewers. Over time, dating shows have tended to become more reality-based and focused on building relationships as opposed to just finding a mate.
The dating game show subgenre originated in the United States and was introduced by television producer and game show creator Chuck Barris. Barris's first dating show, The Dating Game, premiered in 1965 and involved a bachelor or bachelorette asking three other singles questions that only the audience could see. The suitors were allowed to talk about their rivals in derogatory ways, making the show a general display of indignity. Some of the questions were designed to elicit humorous or suggestive responses. Another Barris show, The Newlywed Game, put recently-married couples against each other, with the winning couple being the one who knew the most about the other's preferences. Sometimes, the other couples got divorced, but some even received a "second chance" on The Dating Game. Criticisms were levied against these shows for instigating discord that may not have occurred otherwise.
The dating show genre ebbed away for a bit but was then revived through The New Dating Game and Blind Date in the UK. The original shows remained popular in reruns, a rarity for game shows in general. Cable television in the 1980s and 1990s revived interest in these shows and inspired new variations based on prior formats. A few specialty channels subsequently began to feature shows with LGBT contestants.
