Joel McHale talks about The IT Crowd and the reality TV fat trend

by Joel Keller, posted Sep 17th 2009 11:03AM
Joel McHale of CommunityWith the much-anticipated premiere of Community finally bowing tonight, I figured it was a good time to pull out the interview I did with Joel McHale when I encountered him at the NBC party during the TCA press tour. I didn't talk to McHale about his current NBC show, however; I talked to him about his previous NBC show.

Fans of the British sitcom The IT Crowd may remember that an American pilot was shot and the show was announced for NBC's midseason schedule a couple of years back, with McHale playing Roy and Richard Ayoade bringing his breakout role of Moss over from the original. Only, the pilot never saw the light of day, and a series was never picked up.

I asked McHale about what caused the show to be dropped and if he has any regrets over the show's flame-out. Then, as a person standing in front of the host of The Soup would tend to do, I asked him about what in the reality TV landscape gets him charged up. Interview is after the jump.

More to Love finaleLuke Conley has selected Tali as the winner of 'More to Love,' Fox's new reality show in which one "average Joe" finds love among 20 plus-sized women.

Taking a page from 'The Bachelor,' Conley proposed to the 26-year-old New Yorker at the end of the episode. She accepted, although it is unclear whether the couple is still together.

Malissa A, also 26, was named runner-up.

'More to Love' Series Premiere: Inspirational ... Or Offensive?

by Andrew Scott, posted Jul 29th 2009 6:30PM
More to LoveBased on last night's 'More to Love' premiere, will Fox actually deliver on its promise of an "inspirational" reality series, in which one average Joe finds love amid 20 "real" (ie, "normal-sized") women?

Fat chance.

The show's alleged purpose is to prove that love is ultimately blind, no matter what shape or size you may come in. But already, weight has become the centerpiece of the show in ways that are offensive even by the standards of Fox, the network behind 'Temptation Island' and 'Mr. Personality.'

Take the interview segments. There, each contestant's age, weight and height are shown at the bottom of the screen, as if to shock viewers into realizing that -- gasp! -- some women really do weigh more than 120 pounds. If there's one instance in which 'More to Love' needs to lose weight, this would be it.

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.

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?

Do you want to watch fat people dating?

by Brad Trechak, posted Mar 30th 2009 11:02AM
FoxFox seems to think so. It has struck a deal with Mike Fleiss, the producer of The Bachelor, to produce a new dating show in which everyone will be more "average" looking. The show will be called More To Love.

They claim it's an attempt to break the industry assumption that viewers only want to watch highly attractive people. It seems more like another attempt by reality television to use a certain type of people in exchange for some air time on a major network. But that's just me.

My big concern is that Fox is essentially taking advantage of the obesity problem in the United States. While I like the concept behind such shows as The Biggest Loser, this has the potential of being a case of freaks on display. On the other hand, if the people behave normally, it could give a good message to the public that being overweight, while not healthy, does not automatically make a person unattractive.
