Past reality dating shows
I’ve never actually enjoyed dating shows, but I’ve hate-watched plenty of them. ” at the leading men on ABC’s “The Bachelor,” rolled my eyes at the pun-filled narration on MTV’s late-2000s show “Next” and scoffed at the standards held by rich, single clients on Bravo’s “Millionaire Matchmaker.” Netflix’s “Dating Around” is the first reality show I actually enjoyed watching because it is a beautiful, poetic series that doesn't mock its subjects.
At a time when dating has become an exercise in app roulette, with infinite options to swipe but the same awkward first-date hurdles, “Dating Around” captures the uncertain search for connection: no smug host, cheesy music or probing confessionals required.
Times are ET/PT; because TV networks frequently change their schedules and also repeat episodes, make sure to check your guide or other TV listings.But a cast that includes more diversity demonstrates how “coming out” stories can surface, how race comes into play in conversation and how chats can be more serious the older you get.
