This is America's chance to watch love and romance unfold LIVE, where anything can happen," said Liz Gateley, EVP Head of Programming, Lifetime.

"With Date Night Live, Lifetime gave us the incredible opportunity to turn the traditional dating show on its head with couples getting to know each other completely unvarnished for the first time on live TV, unfiltered and unedited.
