Howie Mandel returned to Fox for the largest batch of "Mobbed" (Wed., 9 p.m. EST on Fox) episodes yet. The continuing popularity of the format, which sees people using the power of a flash mob to express something to someone else, has created a series out of a one-shot television event.
This time around, Steve Soboslai decided he wanted to express how deep his feelings have grown for his long-distance friend Dana. The two had never met before, so why not do it with hundreds of your closest strangers?
Soboslai, who fronts the band Punchline, sang Cheap Trick's "I Want You to Want Me" to Dana, and finally revealed the reason for all the insanity erupting around her. He wants to stop being long-distance friends and try for something more. Luckily, Dana wasn't so stunned by the spectacle that she couldn't answer. She agreed to see where this relationship could go from here. After a start like that, who wouldn't?
"Mobbed" returns next Wednesday at 9 p.m. EST on Fox, and then comes back in February for more singing and dancing.
