    LOS ANGELES, California (Hollywood Reporter) -- The magic is gone for two formerly high-rated syndicated dating shows.

    Production has stopped on NBC Universal Domestic Television Distribution's "Blind Date," while Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution's "ElimiDate" hasn't been renewed for 2006-07, sources said.

    Blind Date made me want to get a hottub.

    Not that I've actually seen any of them, but I read there's a series of pornos that follow the same premise as Blind Date.

    Neither of these shows held a candle to Studs.

    Anyone else remember that?

    I loved the show Studs. It was on at like 2 a.m. just as we were coming back from drinking in college.

    This guys also starred as an asshole pick-up artist in a great Labatt's Blue commercial back in the day.

    A show somewhat similar to this type of programming that entertains me to no end is called Cheaters.  It tends to run in syndication around the midnight to 2am timeframe.  I'm not certain if the host, Joey Greco, freaks me out or just plain out makes me laugh.  I do know that I'm very entertained by the premise of the show.  It's one of my guilty DVR pleasures.

    Now just how am I going to watch drunken idiots grope each other for attention on a cheesy late-night syndicated show?
    This is an outrage.
