Remember the Awesomeness that was Love Connection?

Back in the 1980s and 1990s, Love Connection was an American television game show, hosted by Chuck Woolery. In the show, singles attempted to connect with a compatible partner in what was a reversed and modernized variant of The Dating Game. I say reversed, because instead of the whole point of the show being the meeting which would lead to the date, in Love Connection, they had already had the date and you get to see the after effects. The show debuted in syndication on September 19, 1983 and ran until July 1, 1994, (more than 2,000 episodes). Reruns continued to air until September 8, 1995. In 1998 the series was relaunched for one season with Pat Bullard as host. It did not catch on like the original.
