NEW YORK — For those who can remember, “Double Dare” wasn’t just an iconic late 80s, early 90s game show — it was an experience.

Getting messy was required and if you were slimed, it was considered a badge of honor.

At the helm of it all was lovable host Marc Summers who never missed a beat.

Thirty years after its premiere, “Double Dare” returns to Nickelodeon with “The Double Dare Reunion Special” airing Friday at 9 p.m. on Nick at Nite.
