Serial killer Rodney Alcala's episodes were shown during his murder spree and after he had been convicted of rape in California.

ABC dropped the show on July 6, 1973, but it continued in syndication for another year (1973–1974) as The New Dating Game.

The program was revived three additional times in syndication afterwards.

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.
