FOX Greenlights Season 2 of LOVE CONNECTION; Andy Cohen to Return as Host
LOVE CONNECTION has been renewed for a second season, it was announced today by Rob Wade, President, Alternative Entertainment and Specials, FOX Broadcasting Company. Andy Cohen will return as host and co-executive producer for Season Two, along with executive producer Mike Fleiss ("The Bachelor").
"Andy Cohen is a phenomenal host, not only because he has brought so much fun to the show but also because he truly wants these participants to find love, and that genuine level of interest enables him to elicit both touching and hilariously awkward dating moments from them," said Wade. "I'd also like to thank Mike Darnell and Mike Fleiss, who, along with Andy, have helped redefine this show."
"This show fits like a glove and I can't wait to make more love connections," said Cohen.
"We are excited for a second season of LOVE CONNECTION," said Mike Darnell President, Warner Bros. Unscripted & Alternative Television. "Andy Cohen is a natural provocateur and is beloved by so many for his uncanny ability to bring out the most revealing details about the couples and their dates."
In tonight's all-new episode of LOVE CONNECTION, "Devilish in a Blue Dress," airing at 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT, singles Adam Menchaca and Casey Tatum dish the dirt on some of the best, worst and awkward moments of their dates in front of host Andy Cohen and the live studio audience. Alex recounts a match who led him on a cemetery outing, while Casey reveals what happened when her date got a little too drunk.
The revival of the dating show sends hopeful singles on three dates in order to ditch the apps and find true love. Each hour of LOVE CONNECTION features single men and/or women in search of romance. They tell Cohen exactly what they're looking for in a partner and why they've found it so hard to meet Mr. or Mrs. Right.
