Fox has picked up Take Me Out, a summer dating reality show to premiere on June 7 and air in the Thursday 8-9 PM slot. Based on an international format, Take Me Out, produced by FremantleMedia North America, is filmed in front of a studio audience and features a “Flirty 30″ panel consisting of 30 good-looking single women. Every week, the women meet several bachelors who try impress them with their looks, personality and sense of humor. Each woman stands at a lighted podium with a switch: if she likes the bachelor, she keeps her light on; if not, she turns it off. The game show is held in 4 rounds. After the women narrow down their field to those interested in the guy on stage, the man takes charge, turning out the lights of those ladies he’s not into. During the final round, the bachelor will pose one final question to the two remaining women before choosing the winner. The new couple will then be whisked away on a romantic fantasy date. Meanwhile, the remaining 29, plus one new woman, return during the next game. Take Me Out, which is currently casting, is executive produced by Jeff Apploff (Don’t Forget the Lyrics) Here is a clip from the British version of the show:
