Albie and Chris ManzoAlbie and Chris Manzo are ready for their close-up on Bravo. The sons of 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' star Caroline Manzo have begun work on a new spinoff, according to the New York Post.

The two Manzo brothers appeared on Bravo's 'The Millionaire Matchmaker' earlier this season, bringing in the show's highest ratings and getting a lot of female attention.

The New York Post reports that the brothers have signed a contract with Bravo and recently moved into their own place in Hoboken. "The boys were looking for some independence," a source told the Post. "They're getting a ton of attention from the ladies and needed their own space."

Bravo is staying mum on the topic, telling the Post they have "not made any announcement."

Those aren't great numbers, but considering how much cheaper it is to produce than Heroes, which isn't doing much better, NBC would consider it a win if it stays there.

The problem with that, as I'm seeing it, is too many of the recurring segments just aren't working as well. An entire segment each night is devoted to these comedy correspondents, and eleven episodes in, they're more miss than hit.

Tonight, Owen Benjamin (The House Bunny) brought in a video of himself traipsing around LA offering to write jingles for smaller businesses. As with every other video segment they've done, it just went on and on and on. Even worse, none of the songs were funny.
