Lifetime (Jan. 8, 8 p.m. ET)


This is like a Dating Game for our sexually open age. It’s frisky, light and mindless, and I have no problem with that. An eligible girl spends some sunny, flirty time relaxing with three Romeos: One is as eligible as she is, a second is gay, and a third already has a girlfriend. (Although if the gay one turns out to have a boyfriend, why isn’t he “taken” too?) The girl’s job is to guess who is which and win a vacation with Mr. Available. In the pilot, at least, the participants seem to enjoy the silliness of it all. The show (which airs as back-to-back half-hour episodes) plays out closer to a romantic comedy—an abridged My Best Friend’s Wedding—than a Bachelor, where the girls practically end up with ulcers from dealing with such a range of emotions.
