Unfortunately, looks almost always won and that probably didn't make viewers (who mostly didn't look like fashion models) very happy so the show died an early death.Even bringing back Chuck Woolery for a third try at host didn't help!
After that, the Dating Game returned for the Fall of 1973 season in syndication with Chuck Woolery as a new host.
After three seasons off the air, Chuck returned, again in syndication, with more episodes from 1977-1980!
In addition to the old questioning and choosing a date segments, some previous daters would return to tell viewers how their date turned out.
That version lasted through 1989 and was hosted by Jeff Mac Gregor.
For its final three seasons in prime-time, the Dating Game was followed by "The Newlywed Game" which was also produced by Chuck Barris and the sexual inuendos were even more flagrant.
