ABC logoI've given up trying to come up with lines for reality shows like "just when you think you've seen the worst of reality shows..." because they just keep coming up with this stuff. Now ABC has a new show where they're going to make couples live with each other and date each other in complete darkness. No, the couples aren't blind and this isn't some social experiment to see what life would be like if they were, otherwise they'd probably just have them wear blindfolds.

The new show is titled Dating in the Dark (of course) and is based on a show that ran in the Netherlands. It features couples that have been "scientifically matched for compatibility," which I take to mean they're actually brother and sister. They'll live in a house together in complete darkness. They'll have to eat in the dark, shower in the dark, play games in the dark, and, well, do it in the dark too. We'll watch everything though night vision glasses, like the killer in Silence of the Lambs.

A reality show where people live together isn't enough, now we have to watch them in spooky lighting. Next up: a dating show where people have their mouths duct-taped for 30 days.
