Jon Gosselin goes on Match.com (via FunnyorDie.com, that is)

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 2nd 2009 4:33PM
This is pretty funny: Funny or Die has created a Match.com video for Jon & Kate Plus 8 star Jon Gosselin. Now that he's going to be free from Kate, he's looking for a date. Didn't mean for that to rhyme.

The funniest part is the screen name they give Jon.

You're going to have More To Love on FOX (and more to hate too)

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 25th 2009 5:25PM
A while back we told you about a new FOX reality show titled The Fatchelor. That was actually a cute nickname for the show More To Love, which features an overweight guy looking for love with an overweight gal. Or maybe any gal, though this preview below does seem to say that he wants one with more meat on her bones. But the question is, will you watch this? And if so ... why?

Real Housewives of New York City is, like, irritating as hell

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 29th 2009 7:33PM
If you haven't watched The Real Housewives of New York City, then you're missing ... well, a lot of really annoying women doing stuff. But you are also missing out on some great wisdom. In the clip below from last night (also at the link above), Kelly explains to her friends her philosophy about going on a date, which apparently includes not eating salad and using the word "like." A lot. Try to keep track of how many times she uses it.

I believe that if everyone would stop using that word so much they would seem 94% more intelligent.

Dexter dates his sister?

by Debra McDuffee, posted Apr 16th 2008 11:40AM
dexterIn this news item of paramount importance, we as readers, viewers and fans learn that Dexter Morgan is dating his sister, Deborah. It seems they have been seen romantically dining together, even celebrating.

What confusion will this lead to? When Dexter looks at Deborah longingly on camera, will he be wishing they were on a date? Or does he have the lust for a kill? Will they write the dating into the show? Will Dexter and Deborah become the first brother-sister couple on the air?

Get some perspective, people. Michael C. Hall and his co-star, Jennifer Carpenter are dating. Real life. Fictionally, they can still be siblings without a conflict of interest. Let's just be happy for them that they may have found true love, shall we?

A&E begins Matchmaking June 16

by Adam Finley, posted May 22nd 2007 12:02PM

matchThat's right, A&E has a new reality series, Confessions of a Matchmaker, set to debut on June 16 at 10:00 p.m. that is all about the art of making matches. Starting with the lumberjacks who chop down the trees for the matches and ending with the factory workers who create the match heads out of phosphorus sesquisulfide and potassium chlorate.

Hang on, someone just told me that's not what this series is about at all. It's actually about Patti Novak, a professional matchmaker who helps her clients find that special someone by using her own brand of "tough love." I'm guessing Novak's approach doesn't involve a lot of potassium chlorate, but maybe it should. I'm just saying.

King of the Hill: The Passion of the Dauterive

by Adam Finley, posted Apr 29th 2007 8:31PM

king of the hill(S11E07) When I was attending high school in a small Iowa town, two people who worked at my church, each married to different people, had an affair that quickly became public knowledge. It's impossible to keep those things quiet in any small town, because they tend to be populated with people who feel everyone else's business is their own.

The relationship between Bill and his pastor in this episode wasn't as seedy as an extra-marital affair, but I couldn't help but notice some parallels. At my church, the woman who was having the affair was almost fired because of it, and Reverend Stroup's congregation does not respond well when she tells them she and and Bill are dating, either.

Fox and the Farrelly brothers team up

by Julia Ward, posted Dec 8th 2006 1:23PM
Farrelly BrothersFox has given a script order to a new sitcom from the Farrelly brothers, writers Chris Pappas and Mike Bernier and producer Brad Johnson. Called The Rules for Starting Over, the sitcom focuses on a thirty-something guy who is entering the dating scene after a divorce. He's got a bunch of male buddies - also divorced. All of them learning that, yes, the rules of dating in your 30s are much different than the rules of dating in your 20s.

Let's muse for a moment on just how different. There's the whole biological clock thing you've got to look out for in your 30s. People are more likely to have entered the stage of dating where they're "shopping for a life partner" rather than just having a good time. There's less sloppy "hooking up" and, I'm guessing, you're less likely to stumble your way into a threesome. Those things require planning when you're not in college or the Real World house. The internet may play a bigger part in your dating life than it ever has. If you "let yourself go" during your marriage, than you've got to lower your superficiality standards or whip yourself back into marketable shape. Wow, is there anything good about dating in your 30s? Sex in the City made it look so kinky.

CBS launches online reality show

by Anna Johns, posted Oct 2nd 2006 7:31PM
innertube logoAccording to Broadcasting & Cable, CBS launched a web-only reality show on its video broadband channel, Innertube, today. The only problem is: I can't find it. The show is called Hook Me Up and it actually sounds kind-of fun. It's about four singles who "brave the world of internet dating". Basically, we get to watch these people go on dates with people they meet on the internet and we get to vote on which date we think is right for each person. New episodes "air" Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

If you can find it, put the link in comments and tell me what you think.

The Office: The Convention

by Michael Sciannamea, posted Sep 29th 2006 9:55AM
The Convention(S03E02) After a magnificent season premiere last week, it would have been difficult for this episode to come close. It didn't, but that doesn't mean it wasn't a very satisfying viewer experience anyway.

Michael can be such an ass at times, but underneath all of the bravado, he is a very vulnerable guy. He generally is hurt that Jim left the Scranton office for greener pastures in Stamford but, of course, Jim admits that he didn't leave because he hated Michael. We all know why he left, but he had to tell Michael about his rejection by Pam. We then see Michael do his best to be a friend to Jim, and when he just acts like a regular guy and not a combination of a comedian and businessman, he can be just fine.

CBS preparing to launch online dating show

by Adam Finley, posted Aug 8th 2006 9:05AM
cbsAs of right now a launch date is unknown, but CBS will be producing a reality dating series for innertube, its broadband site that launched in May. The new original series will be called Hook Me Up and will follow four people as they're wooed by five other people over a series of dates. People watching the show can vote on who gets to stay and who gets kicked off the show. So really, I guess "original" isn't the best word to describe it since it sounds like about fifty other shows out there. Oh yeah, and "secrets" will be revealed on each show. Unless one of the "secrets" is that the show is a joke and they're actually going to try a concept that isn't tired and overdone, I doubt I'll be tuning in.

Monk: Mr. Monk, Private Eye

by Adam Finley, posted Aug 5th 2006 10:50AM

monk(S05E05) This episode was directed by Peter Weller, who also played the actor portraying Stottlemeyer in the season premiere, something I complete missed when I saw that episode. Shame on me.

The show also introduced a new love interest for Stottlemeyer, a no-nonsense real estate agent named Linda Fusco, played by Sharon Lawrence. They left their relationship pretty wide open by the end, so I suspect she'll be returning for more episodes, which is always cool because I like it when they take the focus away from Monk once in awhile and flesh out the side characters a bit more.

In this episode, Natalie, inspired by her late grandfather who started a toothpaste company in England ("talk about optimism!"), leases some office space and sets up a private detective agency for Mr. Monk. Their first client is the aforementioned Linda, who wants them to find out who dented her fender. She's convinced it was her ex-husband, but as they delve deeper they discover the man who did it is also the same man who drowned his lover by knocking her out, sealing her in a box, and dumping her over the side of his yacht (a yacht called "Lucky Lady" by the way. Never let it be said the Monk writers don't have a sick sense of humor).

See the ladies of Flavor of Love 2

by Annie Wu, posted Jul 12th 2006 7:28PM
Flavor of Love 2The first Flavor of Love was the epitome of trashy TV. Not only is Flav a tremendously annoying person (sir, what happened to your "Fear of a Black Planet" days?), but all of the female contestants looked like they just stepped off the set of Maury or Jerry Springer. I found myself becoming more and more disgusted every week, and yet... I kept tuning in. Yeah, you're good, VH1. You're real good.

I guess enough innocent souls were, like I, sucked into that filthy world of cat fights and cheap weaves because Flavor of Love 2 is ready to start on August 6th. And, no matter how hard I fight it, I know I'll be tuning in. Sigh. See all of Season Two's "lucky" ladies here.

Oh, that reminds me: A few weeks ago, I saw Pumpkin on Family Feud (her family's answers sucked) and then on MTV's dating show Next (she didn't win). She has exquisite taste in television.

MTV gets into students' computers

by Adam Finley, posted May 6th 2006 5:04PM

hard driveWhat do the contents of your hard dirve have to do with your ability to connect sexually to another person? As far as I know, absolutely nothing, but that hasn't stopped MTV from creating a new reality series called Meet or Delete, in which college students get to check out each other's hard drives to see if they're compatible or not. Of course, I'm sure we'll be seeing the obligatory porn and other unseemly things, otherwise what's the point? It's not like college students in and of themselves are that interesting. The new show, which will air on MTV, MTV2, and MTVU, as well as on the network's Web properties, is being sponsored by HP, whose computers will also feature prominently on the show. The first episode will air on MTVU.com on May 10.

Chris also talks about this over on our ol' pal Ad Jab.
