'Take Me Out': George Lopez And The 'Flirty Thirty'

Because there are always new twists on dating shows, George Lopez introduced America to " Take Me Out " (Thu., 8 p.m. ET on Fox), featuring the "Flirty Thirty" and random men parading around in front of them trying to get their attention. Think of peacocks strutting their stuff and displaying their plumage. In the case of one bachelor, that plumage included a shiny silver Speedo and some incredibly awkward "dance" moves. The premise of the show has the thirty women turn off their lights if they decide they're not interested. In this guy's case, every podium went dark. After they strut for a bit, and if there are any lights still on, the guys head over to chat it up with George Lopez. If, after all the sharing is over, there are any lights remaining on, the guy gets to pick a lady from those still interested. The Seattle Post-Intelligencer acknowledges the cheesiness of the show, but declares they'll be watching it anyway. Summer is often about fluff on television, and this is just the kind of silliness that could wile away those warm summer evenings. See what the guys do next to impress on "Take Me Out," Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on Fox. TV Replay scours the vast television landscape to find the most interesting, amusing, and, on a good day, amazing moments, and delivers them right to your browser. //feeds.huffingtonpost.com/~r/HP/Entertainment/~3/iE9O_1NrYDg/take-me-out-george-lopez-flirty-thirty-dating-show-video_n_1579830.html
