    HOLLYWOOD, March 13 (Reuters) - The following story appeared on the cover of Daily Variety on Thursday:

    * Think "The Bachelor" times two meets "Joe Millionaire," and you've got the idea behind producer Mike Fleiss' next reality show for ABC (nyse: DIS - news - people). The network has given the go-ahead for production on seven episodes of "Rich Guy, Poor Guy,"a one-hour unscripted series in which two single men will try to find love from a pool of women. The twist: One of the men will be filthy rich, the other dirt poor. Neither the women nor viewers will know who's the prince and who's the pauper.

    :rolleyes:

    Unfortunately, it has the potential to be a real ratings winner the way TV viewership is going these days.

    From this morning's industry news:

    "Viewers were as conspicuously absent as the hyphen in ABC's new reality series All American Girl Wednesday. The two-hour debut averaged a 5.0 rating and a 7 share, losing viewers in every half hour. It started out with a 5.9/9 in the 9:00-9:30 p.m. time period and wound up with a 4.4/7 between 10:30 and 11:00 p.m. The show is produced by Simon Fuller and Nigel Lythgoe, who created American Idol. "


    By the way a "7 share" means that 7% of the people watching television were watching 'All American Girl'.

    I am SO sick and tired of these romantic, and I use the term loosely, reality shows. What a message they are conveying to our youth about love and fidelity.....
    Glad to see the ratings beginning to drop on the new shows. Let's lobby for a new genre at ABC--how about westerns !!!!!
