Michael Fails to Impress With an Original Song on 'Sweet Home Alabama' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 5th 2011 3:16AM
'Sweet Home Alabama'Perhaps to help her understand their more urban roots on 'Sweet Home Alabama' (Thu., 9PM ET on CMT), three of the "city" bachelors got to treat country girl Devin Grissom to a New York experience on a day trip.

While Pete Westwood took her onto the streets and treated her to a sidewalk hot dog, which is an authentic New York experience, Michael Chadwick opened up a little and showed her his musical side. He told Grisson that she'd inspired him to write for the first time in six years.

"When Michael sings to me, I don't know whether I should laugh or kind of cheer him on," Grissom lamented. He proved himself quite adept at lifting phrases from popular songs and rearranging them awkwardly to suit his needs.

Jerry Springer to Host New Game Show on GSN

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 22nd 2010 5:07PM
GSN logoJerry Springer has signed to do a new game show on GSN called 'Baggage.' It's described as "an non-dating dating show for non-single singles," which I think means it's about married couples who engage in orgies. OK, maybe I'm wrong about that, but I have no idea what the set-up of the show will be.

I'm happy that this show doesn't involve people throwing chairs each other or women sleeping with their grandfathers, but couldn't Springer have just done a normal, regular, traditional game show? Why does it have to have this dating/reality show vibe, this..."ick" factor? (Hey, there's a title for a game show.)

The best part of the BuzzerBlog story above is that it says that GSN is bringing back both 'Card Sharks' and 'Million Dollar Password' to the network next month.

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.

FOX's More To Love looks like every other dating show, only bigger

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 28th 2009 2:06PM
Last night we had the season finale of The Bachelorette, and tonight we have the debut of what a lot of people are dubbing The Fatchelor. It's FOX's More To Love. Here's a preview.

It might try to tell you it's more "real" because the women aren't skinny supermodels, but it's just as dumb and shallow. The more shows there are like this the more I think the world is coming to an end. Is this guy courting these women or trying to convince them to buy some product he's selling? I keep waiting for the Powerpoint presentation.

Chelsea Handler rips apart The Cougar

by Bob Sassone, posted May 29th 2009 5:12PM
The Cougar is in the running for Worst TV Show of 2009 honors in my mind, so it's good to see that late night host Chelsea Handler feels the same way. Here she is doing a little rant about the show (some suggestive scenes and jokes included, so put your headphones on if you're at work).

I'll say this again: isn't it awful how low TV Land has gone? It's weird that I can watch a great Andy Griffith Show marathon, immediately followed by The Cougar. There's something wrong there. (Video also here if the one below doesn't work for you.)

Wait, FOX actually has a show called The Fatchelor this summer?

by Bob Sassone, posted May 14th 2009 7:03PM
FOXLeave it to FOX to do something like this. Mike Fleiss, the guy behind ABC's The Bachelor, will make another single guy dating show (this time starring a fat guy) called The Fatchelor. It's slated to air this summer but might be pushed to the fall.

Something tells me that a show titled The Fatchelorette would cause controversies and get various groups in an uproar, but having a fat guy in it is funny! Will he be the only fat one? Will the women all be hot and make this into sort of a reality show version of According To Jim or Still Standing? Wasn't there a prank reality show several years back that did something like this?

What other network show would you like to see get, um, bigger?

Lifetime greenlights Gay, Straight or Taken?

by Julia Ward, posted Nov 21st 2006 3:02PM
Lifetime TelevisionAs if the dating world wasn't already a beast for single, heterosexual broads, Lifetime has decided to rub it in with reality dating show Gay, Straight or Taken? debuting on January 8th. Created by the minds behind Deal or No Deal, Gay, Straight or Taken? sends one woman on three dates. If she can choose the single, straight man from the bunch, than she wins a prize for the two of them. If she chooses the gay guy or the taken guy, the man she picks gets the loot.

According to the show's producers, Gay, Straight or Taken? will turn "stereotypes on its head." Lifetime nor reality television are exactly stereotype busters so let's just go ahead and handicap the show. Ladies, the most desirable, likable guy is the gay one. The one who comes on the strongest is the married one, and the one who you would never in a million years dream of dating because he's too nice is the single one.

Lauren Graham to produce slate of shows

by Julia Ward, posted Nov 6th 2006 6:06PM
Lauren GrahamSister is doing it for herself. When Gilmore wraps and the Studio 60 guest spots dry up, Lauren Graham will be able to fall back on her production chops. Graham has unveiled a slate of shows that she'll be executive producing with Warner Brothers Television under the banner of Good Game Entertainment. Good Game Vice-President Kathy Ebel is a college friend of Graham's, and the Warner Brothers' partnership is good so long as Gilmore Girls is on the air.

What's on the Good Game girls slate so far? First up is an international auction house-set dramedy called Objects of Desire. The show, which has been sold to The CW, is an ensemble show that promises a mix of "juicy workplace soap and behind-the-scenes intrigue" as well as a procedural element that follows an art object's history over the course of the show.
