Meet My Folks coming to MyNetworkTV
I know most of you have been kept awake at night by disturbing thoughts that there just might not be enough reality television. Thankfully, the folks over at the FOX-owned MyNetworkTV have heard your cries in the night and are developing some new (and not so new) reality shows.
First, the short-lived NBC series Meet my Folks is coming back with the same format of parents deciding who their children should date.
There's also Jail, a new series from John Langley, the creator of Cops. As the name suggests, this series will look at life in prisons all over the United States.
Keeping with the whole "law and order" theme is The Academy, a series that focuses on police officers in training in Los Angeles.
In Divorce Wars, a couple on the verge of splitting up are put through a five-day therapy course to try and make them change their mind. I think a show that did the exact opposite would be more entertaining. You know, a show that tries to convince married couples to get a divorce. I would totally watch that.
Also, in addition to the acquisition of Meet My Folks, MyNetworkTV will also broadcast new episodes of Paradise Hotel, a former FOX series in which singles are put in a resort and pretty much just do one another.
