'New Girl' to 'Marry Me': Surveying fall TV's fake online dating sites

TV-Online-Dating-01.jpg

If you’re like some EW staffers (who shall remain anonymous call me!), you’ve been using online dating for years, if not decades. (Match.com did launch in 1995, after all.) But it seems the small screen is just now catching up to today’s matchmaking mores—falling head over heels for faux dating apps and sites that bear a striking resemblance to services you may already be familiar with (cough Tinder cough). Here’s what to expect if you swipe right while watching New Girl, Marry Me, and more.

The show: A to Z
The site: Wallflower
What it is: The cutesy cousin of OkCupid where hopeless romantic Andrew (Ben Feldman) works.
Romantic prospects: 4 1/2 out of 5 hearts. Andrew and Zelda (Cristin Milioti) find each other thanks to the site…but only after straight Zelda is mistakenly set up with a woman. READ FULL STORY

'Stalker' premiere react: Pouring fuel on desire

Though Kevin Williamson is the Scream King, the debut of his new series Stalker was more of a whimper. And I’m not just talking about the sounds coming from the victims of the show’s eponymous creeps.

There was something literally and viscerally bloodless about the premiere, which was touted by CBS as “the scariest drama to ever air” on TV and which I have to admit was one of my most anticipated series of the 2014–2015 season. The pilot didn’t have quite the lingering chill it could or should have… nor did it have the narrative fire its multiple gasoline-drenched set pieces hoped to convey. There is certainly plenty of unsettling material to mine, but Stalker has yet to come close to the pulse-pounding promise of its initial trailer.

For those who didn’t catch the premiere, here are the basics (along with some spoilers): READ FULL STORY

Watch: Survivor (CBS): The long-running reality show revives the Blood vs. Water concept as nine pairs compete to win a million dollars in Nicaragua.

CBS' new fall shows: A snap judgment

What’s the best new show coming to CBS? Well, we have high hopes for Vince Gilligan and David Shore’s Battle Creek, but as CBS Entertainment Chairman Nina Tassler explained during the network’s upfronts presentation, that doesn’t premiere until midseason. For fall, CBS knows what you want: More NCIS! Your guide to non-NCIS offerings also appears below. READ FULL STORY
