Some of these shows will not make it onto a year-end best list; something that already aired well might, given the very best of TV’s propensity to improve in memory. But that’s months from now, anyhow. And the volume of worthwhile TV, from an utterly unexpected cop comedy to a better-than-ever spy drama, that’s aired in the first half of the year is proof that a few months of TV can bear plenty of surprises.

The dating game show subgenre has its origins in the United States . The original dating game shows were introduced by television producer Chuck Barris . The format of Barris's first dating show, The Dating Game , which commenced in 1965, put an unmarried man behind a screen to ask questions of three women who are potential mates, or one woman who asked questions of three men. The person behind the screen could hear their answers and voices but not see them during the gameplay, although the audience could see the contestants. The various suitors were able to describe their rivals in uncomplimentary ways, which made the show work well as a general devolution of dignity. Questions were often obviously rigged to get ridiculous responses, or be obvious allusions to features of the participants' private areas.
