    I think you're confusing Harold Ramis with Eugene Levy.

    I saw this, too. My sister's best friend went on the Dating Game and won a trip to Hawaii. She said her "date" was quite boring but the chaperone was a lot of fun!

    I always wondered how those dates went!
    Count your blessings!

    Me too. I used to wonder if any real romances grew out of that show but I doubt it. Over the years it seems that a lot of people went on the show just for the exposure on tv and to further their acting careers

    Sorta like The Bachelor/Ette! . I think there were a few that kept dating for a bit, and I think I remember that a couple had gotten married. Loved that show and I wanted to marry Jim Lange.

    What a shame. What you say in quote isn't surprising, considering the show and how it worked. Sorry about Lange, sort of, but we're all going to go sometime.

    Entertaining show he hosted.

    Well that's a first. I've never heard anyone say that about Jim Lange before.

    I saw the headline but couldn't bring myself to open the article because my dad looks just like him. Thought it'd be a bad omen or something.

    I love watching videos of those old game shows, the clothes make me laugh like a hysterical monkey.
