  • Any time you add a “Celebrity” element, it’s a recipe for disaster as most high profile celebrities refuse to lower themselves to doing a reality show so you get the same mess of D-list reality stars and fame whores. The only show that’s seemed to deliver on the celebrity element is Hollywood Game Night and that’s because it’s a fun gameshow that has no affect on a star’s career.

    • While I found Game Night boring, it seems to have been able to capitalize on Jane Lynch;s contacts. It got bigger name celebrities than other shows and that was before even 1 episode aired

  • These networks are so stupid. When are they going to realize that these dating shows do NOT work? The only successful dating shows out there are The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, if I am not mistaken. Every dating show I’ve seen come on the air in the past few years (other than those 2) have been cancelled after 1 season or even before the 1st season has even finished airing. They are just asking for low ratings and wasted money by putting shows like that on. I swear, these networks are so stupid.

    • Lets not jump the gun lets at least wait and see what it’s all about first. Ryan hasn’t put out anything that wasn’t successful so maybe this will actually be entertaining. Besides we don’t have all the details yet like it says.

    • Shouldn’t this be called “Dream BEARD”?

  • Ryan is laughing all the way to the bank. As Dick Clark’s protege, he has mastered the “art” of selling crap for outrageous prices. I like Ryan, I just dislike his shows. His Idol hosting is the only exception… he’s the best.

    • I have a feeling that Ryan could successfully sell lawnmowers to beduins.

  • Shouldn’t reality be in quotes? These shows seem to be diametrically opposite to reality

  • Enough with the stupid reality crap. Talk about overload. Maybe fox and other networks need to hire people with a little initiative and come up with maybe a good TV show instead of trying to copy each other shows. Maybe there is a reason why TV ratings are going down. I will not be watching.
