We’re sad to learn that game show creator/host Chuck Barris has passed away at the age of 87. Barris started his career as an NBC page before going on to create wildly popular games shows including The Dating Game, The Newlywed Game, and The Gong Show, which he hosted. Barris was also the author of “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind: An Unauthorized Autobiography” and the writer of the hit song, “Palisades Park.”
