Review: Thursday TV in the Silly Season

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.)

Premise: An eligible bachelor or bachelorette picks a blind date by asking a series of questions to three singles hidden behind a partition. The show was both a daytime and prime-time success, and yielded several incarnations, including a 1996 version that changed the format.
