Think of ABC's The Bachelor — only more so. You got it, romance fans: a dating show for the rest of us, at least those of us who think twice before getting into a bathing suit. Bachelor impresario Mike Fleiss is behind the series, and the bachelor who'll be looking for more to love, Luke Conley, did play football — on the offensive line — before going into real estate. And according to the 2005 Allan Hancock College Bulldogs 2005 roster, he tipped the scales at 270 lbs. Plus-size model Emme is the host.

For this particularly chilly episode, they should have ditched the Bon Jovi song in the opening for "Baby, It's Cold Outside," as frozen things come in threes: frozen gear, frozen crabs and a frozen harbor. Meanwhile, on the Northwestern, skipper Sig Hansen wrestles with his cigarette addiction. Maybe he should consider changing his first name.

Everybody knows that Tommy Gavin is a little crazy, but too crazy to run into burning buildings? Find out tonight, when he has his FDNY Section 8 review. Meanwhile, Mike goes through with his plan to buy a bar, and a French writer (an attractive young woman, not surprisingly) is wandering around the firehouse, asking the guys to talk to her about 9/11.

Get your survival gear ready because Discovery will be exploring new terrain with several "how will they ever get themselves out of that snowy ravine/swamp/cave with only a toothpick and dental floss?" docudramas and a scripted TV movie.
The network has greenlighted at least seven new projects, including several from top docudrama pros Thom Beers and Craig Piligian, in order to increase its number of original programming hours, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
First is But Wait ... There's More, executive produced by Beers, which follows longform ad salesmen Billy Mays and Anthony "Sully" Sullivan as they check out quirky new products and craft pitches and take to the airwaves to sell their wares. Discovery has ordered 13 episodes and plans to premiere the show...

The Season 4 premiere of Discovery Channel's Deadliest Catch may have sought to reel in viewers by creating the illusion that the fishing boat The Wizard was being flooded in real time, but reality suggests otherwise. Yes, the boat was assaulted by waves last October. And yes, the boat was flooded... a week prior. According to a production outline obtained by the Hollywood Reporter, extra footage may have been shot to pastiche the two events into one especially when you factor in that there are exterior shots (shot by a second craft) of The Wizard being "flooded," though the boat was in fact alone at the time of the actual incident. ( Watch video of the sequence here.) The doc cited by the trade specifically says, "Combine Wizard leak story on Sept. 26 with The Wizard being hit by a big wave on Oct. 1 and Oct. 2.
