Studs is an American television game show which was produced by Fox Television Studios for local television stations. The series premiered on March 11, 1991 as a midseason series, did well enough in its run to be renewed for a full season, and aired for two more full seasons until September 9, 1993.

Studs (game show) Studs The Dating Game but with a Fox Attitude

Studs follows a somewhat similar format to that of The Dating Game and Love Connection. Two men go on dates with three women; afterward, the men would have to match answers with the women regarding the date. Each correct answer would win the man a stuffed heart. At the end of each episode, each woman would decide which man they chose as a "stud" and wanted to go out with again. If the men could correctly guess which woman chose them, both received an all-expense paid date to a location of their choice. In the event that two couples chose correctly, the man with the most stuffed hearts won the date.

Studs provoked some controversy because the answers on the show often discussed the contestants' sexual relationships in detail.

A few episodes featured variations on the usual theme, with individual shows having two women date three men, (this episode was alternatively titled "Studettes") women who went out with younger men, women who wanted to go out with millionaires, and men who went out with magazine centerfolds.

Although the show earned high ratings among young viewers and was fairly popular during its run, it was canceled to make room for the short-lived The Chevy Chase Show.

    The show was also screened in New Zealand, late weeknights on TV2 in the early 1990s.
