Producer of the dating game
See full summary » One of the classic game shows created by Chuck Barris.In this show, a single woman would be given a choice of three bachelors whom she could talk with, but not see. I had a daughter who was a druggie who I could see as an example.His father, who died of a stroke, was reportedly a dentist and/or worked in textiles, and Barris yearned to take a different career path.
Then in October of 1966, ABC moved the series to their Thursday night prime-time schedule at PM to replace "The Tammy Grimes Show" that only survived a few episodes.It then returned to daytime only until 1973 on CBS.After that, the Dating Game returned for the Fall of 1973 season in syndication with Chuck Woolery as a new host.“I was never on drugs, but everybody thought I was. And I had no use for drugs at all.”“It was good, [the release of the film 'Confessions of a Dangerous Mind'], because it sold books and reminded people that I now see myself, first and foremost, as a writer. Promotion, in general, really isn't me anymore.”Chuck Barris is believed to have been born on June 3, 1929, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.When they saw 'The Gong Show' and I would come out, they all thought I was whacked out of my mind. Barris often provided conflicting details about his family life and his early years are somewhat shrouded in mystery.
