I don't know, this show sounds pretty benign when compared with the other crap there has been on reality television. Sure beats "Hot or Not".

North America must outlaw reality TV in order to avoid our destruction.

Seriously!

Bah. This one looks harmless. And it's not really new either - isn't this what The Dating Game basically was?

Man, I wish there was a little Smiley guy who would slap in forhead, because that is what I did when I read this.

Isn't this one of the Signs the world would end ? Hehehe...

In America, it should not surprise us that everything, even dignity, is for sale.

What should surprise us is that it goes so cheaply.

Why is it undignified for Lewinsky to host a dating game show?

Come, come, now.

Didn't the Brits pretty much invent reality TV. Isn't Euro TV the absolute worst for lame-ass variety shows with guests doing all sorts of crap? Isn't Japanese TV renowned for their debasing game shows (eat this jar of bees and win a years supply of wasabi)?

I do think there are lots of buyers and sellers of dignity, however its a worldwide market.

Edit: to actually answer the question at hand, I think Monica should be able to host a game show, as long it involves copius amounts of her and the guests bobbing for apples.
