Talking about the speech Wednesday, Granholm added she had to yell over the crowds' thunderous response in order to keep her speech short. The former governor, who's now a host on the progressive network Current TV, also weighed in on recent polls in Michigan that show Mitt Romney behind Obama, even though Romney was born in the state and his father once served as governor.

The Dating Game is an ABC television show that first aired on December 20, 1965 and was the first of many shows created and packaged by Chuck Barris from the 1960s through the 1980s.
ABC dropped the show on July 6, 1973, but it resurfaced in several syndicated versions (1973–1974 as The New Dating Game, 1978–1980, 1986–19–1999; repeats of the last version appeared in the 1999–2000 season.) For years it would almost always be aired in tandem with another Barris production, The Newlywed Game, which premiered on ABC the following year.
One standard trademark was that at the end of each episode, the host and winning contestants would blow a kiss to the viewers.
