If that’s the case, NBC as well as its smash struck “The Voice” must be feeling very flattered, because FOX should be introducing a brand new matchmaking tv show – cheekily called “The selection” – this summer which is a definite respect couples looking for female the musical fact competition.

“The Choice” would be managed by Cat Deeley, just who additionally has “which means you Think You’ll be able to Dance,” and blatantly got its format from its NBC-based predecessor. “Four a-listers … blind auditions … rotating chairs … but … it’s not what you think,” stated a promo that broadcast during a recently available episode of American Idol. Like “The Voice,” “The Choice” will feature four famous people (whose labels haven’t however been revealed) in rotating chairs. Only this time, the stars might be sizing upwards individuals as potential dates.

Each couch consists of a “love handle” (yeah, you read that correct…but kindly try to keep your thoughts from the gutter).

Your competition recalls the heyday of The Dating Game, as the stars will pick their unique dates without having to be capable of seeing them “there’sn’t been an innovative new [dating tv series] struck since ‘The Bachelor,’ there wasn’t an in-studio one which’s worked since The Dating Game 30 years ago,” Fox’s Mike Darnell told “I was thinking about just how to do a blind-date tv series without the need for a wall or blindfolds, in addition to whirling seats seemed like a powerful way to do it.”
