On Tuesday, Fox executives gushed about loving "Love Connection." Today, the network ordered a second season.
St. Louis native Andy Cohen returns as host and executive producer.
“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 Rob Wade, Fox's head of alternative programming. “I’d also like to thank Mike Darnell and Mike Fleiss, who, along with Andy, have helped redefine this show.”
Cohen said, "This show fits like a glove and I can't wait to make more love connections."
As Fox explains, "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' (8 p.m. Thursdays) 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."
