More 'Dating in the Dark' for ABC

Dating in the DarkLate last year, when people were caterwauling over the baseness of ABC's 'Conveyor Belt of Love', a show that was often lumped into the same we're-going-to-hell-in-a-handbasket category was the Alphabet Net's summer series 'Dating in the Dark.'

The comparison was a bit unfair. Not that 'Dark' was Shakespeare or anything, but at least it had the faint patina of being part scuzzy dating reality show, part social experiment. Would these people who got to really like each other in a pitch-black room still like each other when the lights were turned on? The surprise of the show's first season was that, no matter what you hear on those sickening eHarmony commercials, both men and women have the capacity to be shallow as hell.

The good news is that we'll be seeing more of that this summer, as word comes from Variety that ABC has ordered six more episodes of 'Dating in the Dark.'

ABC's Conveyor Belt of Love will literally treat people like meat

by Danny Gallagher, posted Dec 9th 2009 11:10PM
ABC has officially found a way to turn dating reality shows into a literal metaphor.

The network has approved a one-hour special called Conveyor Belt of Love in which prospective bachelors are presented to blushing bachelorettes on (you guessed it!) a conveyor belt like so much pre-packaged meat.

The show is being produced by the game show powerhouse Endemol, which produced a similar dating show back in the day called Chains of Love in which people were (you guessed it again!) chained to their dates. Let's hope these literal freaks never produce a dating show It's Time to Cut Him Off.

Check out the show's official trailer after the jump. Watch it with someone you love who reminds you that you don't have to grovel for affection on television anymore.
