The pre-stardom Farrah Fawcett, Suzanne Somers, Lindsay Wagner, Tom Selleck and Lee Majors appeared as "contestants" on the show in the 1960s and early 1970s.
Other contestants who appeared in their unknown or pre-stardom eras included The Carpenters, Jackson Bostwick, Joanna Cameron, Andy Kaufman (who went under the name Baji Kimran), Steve Martin, Burt Reynolds, John Ritter, Phil Hartman, Jennifer Granholm (Governor of Michigan from 2003-2010), the actor Jay North, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Tom Selleck (who went on the show twice but was not chosen as a "date" either time).
In law school, everyone knew, and women didn't apply to clerk for Judge Kosinski despite his prestige and connections to the Supreme Court.
I always felt the men who took their places were traitors.
The Dating Game was hosted by Jim Lange from its debut on ABC until the late 1970s syndicated series went off the air.
The 1986 revival was originally hosted by comedienne Elaine Joyce, who was replaced by Jeff Mac Gregor after its first season.
I just thought that the judge exhibited extremely poor taste.ABC dropped the show on July 6, 1973, but it resurfaced in several syndicated versions (1973–1974 as The New Dating Game, 1978–1980, 1986–19–1999; repeats of the last version appeared in the 1999–2000 season.) For years it would almost always be aired in tandem with another Barris production, The Newlywed Game, which premiered on ABC the following year.Typically, a bachelorette would question three bachelors, who were hidden from her view; at the end of the questioning period, she would choose one to go out with on a date paid for by the show.— Nancy Leong (@nancyleong) December 10, 2017 Stories like this — and there are likely more that will follow — are why few in the legal industry can say the accusations against Judge Kozinski are truly shocking.In what is becoming an all too common refrain after a serial sexual harasser is outed, Kozinski’s behavior is referred to as “an open secret” by Alexandra Brodsky, a Skadden Fellow at National Women’s Law Center: Glad to see another open secret in print.
