7 New Edgy Dating Reality Shows This Fall

7 New Edgy Dating Reality Shows This Fall

With the success of reality dating shows like Dating Naked and The Bachelorette, TV network executives are scrambling to create even edgier reality dating shows for this fall's line-up. Here are seven new shows already in production.

Stoned Love

Follow the hijinks as budding couples share their first date while impaired on intoxicants including marijuana, cocaine, Ecstasy, Crystal Meth and Molly. In episode one, a young Portland, Ore. couple, dosed on "medicinal marijuana," ponder the significance of the universe while staring into their fuzzy navels. Is it true love or just a bad case of the munchies?

Dating with Grandma

Guess who's joining you on your first date? Grandma! And she's bringing her walker! In the first episode, a young couple from Rochester, Minn. seek love despite frequent mood-killing interruptions to answer such questions as: When is my doctor appointment? Have you seen my glasses? I wonder what that truck is doing across the street? Will this lucky couple find love before Grandma asks them to fix her cell phone so she can watch Wheel of Fortune on the Internet? Dating with Grandma turns up the volume on love this fall.

All-Staff Love

Love is the main item on the agenda on All-Staff Love. Watch as contestants build their brand of love while leading an all-staff meeting. The minutes will fly by like seconds as couples try to stick to the agenda during soul-sucking company meetings. Find out if they achieve their goal of love within the hour or are burdened with joining yet another meaningless committee.

Love Actuary

Love is a risky business, fraught with uncertainty and chaos. On Love Actuary, couples learn ways to predict and minimize the detrimental aspects of love. Through complex mathematical formulas, analytical valuations and information systems, an actuary will design and manage a program for risk-averse couples that controls the hazards of love. What are the statistical probabilities that these couples will ever find true love? Find out this fall on Love Actuary.

Drilling for Love

What's more romantic than a trip to the dentist? Watch as couples have their cavities filled, teeth cleaned and undergo other dental procedures--all in the name of love. Whether its laughing gas or Novocain, the spit will fly as young couples mumble words of endearment through cotton-filled mouths. You'll drool for more episodes of Drilling for Love.

Dating Behind Bars

Dating was never this exciting, or dangerous. Follow couples as they spend a romantic weekend at Rikers Island correctional facility overlooking the scenic East River and Manhattan skyline. Contestants look for love while trying to avoid the pitfalls of confinement such as mystery-meat lunch, body cavity checks and having feces and urine bombs flung at them. Dating Behind Bars gives a whole new meaning to getting shanked.

Lien Love

You've been a naughty girl or boy. You've been delinquent on your taxes for years and now the IRS has placed a lien on your financial assets. This can be a serious blemish on your credit history--but not your love life! Watch Lien Love to discover if these couples who owe Uncle Sam can find love in the time of collateral.
