Michael Bolton to Co-Host ‘Celebrity Dating Game’ on ABC
Michael Bolton is taking over the reins of ‘Celebrity Dating Game’ alongside his co-host Zooey Deschanel. The original Dating Game ran from 1965 to 1973 on ABC and is now returning with eight one-hour long episodes.
ABC says that the show “offers a wry wink at modern dating with a star-studded roasted of celebrity singles from television, music, comedy, reality TV and feature film in their pursuit to find love.”
They go on to say that they hope that the show will have the same feeling as the classic dating show did. Each episode will follow two celebrities who pick one hidden suitor from a panel of three bachelors / bachelorettes. The twist is that the celebrity’s identities will remain a mystery. The only clues will be given via parody song performances by Michael Bolton himself.
There is no premiere date announced yes, all we know now is that the show will be “coming soon” to ABC.
