REVENGE OF THE NERD
Average Joe runner-up Adam Mesh is getting a second chance at reality romance. NBC announced today at the TCA press tour that Mesh will star in Average Joe: Adam Returns, a four-part series premiering March 15 in which the endearing sad sack gets a chance to find the woman of his dreams. But according to the network's entertainment president Jeff Zucker, the contestants will not all be Average Janes. "It's a [regular] dating show with Adam in the middle," he says. "The women will run the gamut."
