Fox's Take Me Out: The Cheesiest Show You'll Watch This Summer

George Lopez

Fox's new dating show Take Me Out is an hour of pure, unadulterated kitschy-ness.  

At the top of the show, host George Lopez descends to the stage on the "Love Lift" (a neon tube resembling that of a drive-through bank teller) and flashes his corny, toothy grin. And that's just the beginning.

Review: Thursday TV in the Silly Season

George Lopez

With new summer programming like what's on display tonight, it's enough to make you miss reruns. (Well, hello, CBS! We can always count on you to do things the traditional way — at least until Big Brother returns next month.)

You could do worse than re-watching Leonard's date with Penny on The Big Bang Theory, or Person of Interest's Reese protecting Astro from last season's The X Factor or Cho's first meeting with Samaire Armstrong on The Mentalist. You could do far worse.

You could, for example, watch your brain cells atrophy by tuning into Fox's hardly-fit-for-cable combo of goofy new meat-market dating shows. (The Dating Game's Jim Lange, I miss you.) In Take Me Out (8/7c), which might as well be called Date Or No Date, it's the guy on display, trying to charm a "flirty 30" bevy of bimbos before they turn out the light on their podium, signaling their disinterest. read more

Summer TV Winners and Losers

Snooki, George Lopez

Just two years ago, MTV was struggling to find its footing. Network staple TRL had ended, onetime hit The Hills was on its way out, and ratings were in a downward spiral. MTV faced its biggest identity crisis yet — then along came Snooki and Co.

Now, led by the crass stars of prime-time phenomenon Jersey Shore, MTV can easily be crowned the biggest winner of the summer of 2011. Jersey Shore's Season 4 premiere averaged 8.8 million viewers, and the show landed five of the top seven cable telecasts of summer. "Thank God for Jersey Shore," says MTV programming head David Janollari. Those ratings translate to big advertising bucks for MTV, notes Horizon Media analyst Brad Adgate. "I think in the 30-year history of MTV, this has been... read more

First Look: Eva Longoria and George Lopez on ALMAs and Unemployment

George Lopez and Eva Longoria

Despite news of his TBS talk show's abrupt cancellation and her Desperate Housewives wrapping up after the upcoming season, there was a lot of laughter when George Lopez and Eva Longoria came together recently in a Hollywood warehouse. The two old amigos were shooting promos for their second go-round as co-hosts of the ALMA Awards, honoring the best in Latin music, film and television.

After taking a year off to retool, the ALMAs will air September 16 on NBC. I was the only print reporter invited to the shoot to talk to the pair about what we can expect from the show and how they're dealing with all the changes in their lives.

TV Guide Magazine: Eva, this will be your fifth year hosting the ALMAs. What's going to be different? read more
