Twentieth dresses for ‘Dating’ test

Exes to dish intimate details on skein

HOLLYWOOD — Twentieth Television, Fox’s syndie arm, will launch a regional test of daily half-hour dating show “Ex-treme Dating” on eight Fox-owned UPN affiliates, including stations in Gotham and Los Angeles, starting July 29.

Show sends people out on their dream date with the person perfectly profiled to match, with the catch that throughout the date, two of the dreamboat’s exes will be able to converse with and provide intimate details to the dream date.

Pending the show’s performance, the show could be rolled out as a nationally syndicated series.

In New York, the show will air at 11 p.m., with the UPN 9 News as its lead-in. In Los Angeles, the show will air at 6:30 p.m. between two runs of “Blind Date.”
