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). During the 2001-2002 season, Phil Kollin would also serve as a fill-in host during some episodes. (Koplitz was not asked back for the 2002-2003 season due to an undisclosed financial issue.) The show was also featured on The Jamie Foxx Show. The rapper The Game was also featured on this show in 1999.
The show was originally taped in Los Angeles for the first three seasons and then moved to New York in 2001 where it would remain for the last 2 seasons of the show. In season 1, Change of Heart paired of with a revival of Love Connection. The Love Connection revival was cancelled after one season and eventually became a standalone show for the 1999-2000 season. From 2000-2003, Change of Heart was also paired in some markets by another game show Street Smarts.
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.
