Series Moving To Tribune and Sinclair Broadcasting Stations in Major Markets - Renewed In More Than 95% Of The U.S.

Los Angeles, September 7, 2005 - NBC Universal Domestic Television Distribution's "Blind Date" kicks off its seventh season taking a deeper look into relationships, hooking up daters in new comedic scenarios and even daring to blindly set up one bride-to-be ready to take the plunge.

Beginning September 26, "Blind Date's" seventh season is expanding beyond the date in new and fresh ways, keeping the viewers laughing with more humorous pop-ups and commentary than ever before. The seventh season will feature the following themes:

- "Erica Gets Married" - One brave woman has set a date to get married and enlisted the help of "Blind Date" to find the most important part of the wedding...THE GROOM!

- Dinner Party - From wining and dining to food fighting, six fiery singles heat up the kitchen with a celebrity chef on hand to help them prepare a gourmet meal.

- Let Mom/Dad Choose - Daters leave the fate of their love connection in the hands of their mom or dad.

- Speed Dating - Guys/girls actually get to choose their own date, but there's a catch...the clock is ticking!

- Family Reunion - Every family has unique characters...wait until you see this family's get together, Blind Date style.

"'Blind Date' is stepping out of the hot tub and focusing on its comedic roots," said Barry Wallach, President, NBC Universal Domestic Television Distribution. "'Blind Date' will highlight the hilarious and awkward moments that come naturally with all kinds of new relationship scenarios that will be explored including speed dating and a woman determined and excited to find a groom through the show."

The original dating reality show, "Blind Date," has been renewed in more than 95% of the country for the 05-06 season. Key broadcasting partners include Tribune Broadcasting and the Sinclair Broadcasting Stations. With the start of the new season, "Blind Date" will have upgrades on WPIX-New York, KTLA-Los Angeles, WCIU-Chicago, KNXV-Phoenix and KSTP-Minneapolis.

"With all these new dating scenarios, the humorous zingers and pop-ups are funnier than ever," said executive producer, Tom Klein. "Viewers can look forward to situations that they can truly relate to whether they are a bride-to-be or just getting back on the market."

Host Roger Lodge has been with "Blind Date" from the beginning and has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to dealing with the trials and tribulations of relationships. Roger continues to lend his expertise and comedic wit when analyzing these new and fresh dating situations.

Since its debut in 1999, "Blind Date" has built a broad national audience by blending its clever commentary, charismatic host and attractive, fun, and sometimes wacky singles to make the most entertaining half-hour of programming in syndication.

The 30-minute series is hosted by Roger Lodge, and is executive produced by Gold Coast Television Entertainment's David Garfinkle and Jay Renfroe. Thomas Klein also serves as executive producer and Rob Dames and Peter Karlin are co-executive producers. "Blind Date" is distributed domestically by NBC Universal Domestic Television Distribution.
