World series of Dating was a BBC3 comedy that turns dating into a American style TV sports show featuring slo-mo action replays, overblown graphics, music and scripted comedy analysis from US dating champ, Doyle MacManus (Rob Riggle) and James Chetwyn-Talbot (Tom Price) with the series culminating in finding the UK's Greatest Dater.
This was a scripted comedy reality show as three men are given the chance to chat up three ladies in a speed-dating format with the ladies having the option to buzz and eject a date should they prove to be dull, stupid, misogynistic or over enthusiastic. There is a referee on hand to keep control and give advice when necessary.
The first episode had contestant Chris downing a glass of red wine from the off and he had no shortage of ego although its the presenters who bring a buzz to the format as the outlandish MacManus contrasts with the more reserved Talbot.
Of course the show is hard to take seriously and as it failed to become required cult viewing it only lasted one series, although its fun to see Riggle giving outrageous dating tips.
