Dating dark tv show abc

Dating in the Dark (Daten in het Donker) is a reality show created in the Netherlands where 3 single men and 3 single women move into a light-tight house getting to know each other and form bonds in total darkness.Three men and three women are sequestered in separate wings of the house, unable to have any conversation or contact with the opposite sex unless in the dark room.The show typically skews older which is essentially a sin in TV ratings.

Other episodes include sketch artists drawing contestants' impressions of each other.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.Initially, all six contestants have a group date in which they all sit at a table in the dark room exchanging names and getting to know one another's voices and personality types.After this date, each contestant can invite another contestant for a one-on-one date; these dates are also held in the dark room.
