Compared with Western cultures, China has traditionally had a vastly different value system towards marriages and family.

More than ever before, networks needed to produce entertaining shows that attracted audiences.

Economic liberalization had loosened restrictions for what could appear on the airwaves, but there was now the added pressure of turning a profit.These new shows were ways for singles to get to know each other in a fun, flirty environment.And for those who had little dating experience, it was a model for courtship; soon, the viewing public was able to reconceptualize ideas of love, relationships and marriage.For example, Human Satellite TV’s “Red Rose Date” featured 12 single males and females who interacted with one another by performing, playing games, and having roundtable chats.Audiences could also tune into shows imported from overseas, such as “Love Game,” a popular Taiwanese show that matched singles through three rounds of speed dating.Despite all the limitations, the show was a groundbreaking depiction of courtship.
