Change of Heart was a dating game show that was hosted by Chris Jagger (1998–2001; 2002–03) then Lynne Koplitz (2001–02) and syndicated by Warner Bros. Television Distribution (via its Telepictures unit).[1] During the 2001–02 season, Phil Kollin would also serve as a fill-in host during some episodes. (Koplitz was not asked back for the 2002–03 season due to an undisclosed financial issue)

The series was featured in a 1999 episode of The Jamie Foxx Show, while rapper The Game also made an appearance that same year.[2]

The show was originally taped in Los Angeles for its first three seasons, and then moved to New York City in 2001, where it would remain for the last two. During season 1, Change of Heart was once paired in most markets with a revival of Love Connection hosted by Pat Bullard in 1998, which was cancelled after one season. From 2000 to 2003, the series was also paired in some markets with another game show, Street Smarts hosted by Frank Nicotero.

The premise of the show involved dating couples who are matched up with other singles and then sent out on respective dates. During the taping, they discuss their relationship, then their new dating experience. At the end of show the couples have to decide if they want to "Stay Together", or if they've had a "Change Of Heart".
