Eva Longoria, George Lopez prep dating shows

A few celebs have decided to go for a dip in the TV dating pool.

In addition to Eva Longoria’s new NBC dating show, "Ready for Love" (which some predict may give “The Bachelor” a run for its money), comedian/TV personality George Lopez is also reportedly trying his hand at televised matchmaking.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Lopez will host Fox's new (appropriately titled) dating show, “Take Me Out.”

"TMO," which is expected to launch June 7, will center around 30 female contestants all looking to score the ultimate hook-up.

Longoria's "Ready for Love," meanwhile, will bring the "age old art of matchmaking into the modern age," as NBC puts it in a statement. Hosted by Giuliana and Bill Rancic, three matchmakers will be on board to help three men, including Tim Lopez of the Plain White T's, each find the mate of their dreams.

Not to be outdone, former MTV host Jenny McCarthy also has a new dating show on the horizon called "Love in the Wild," which is also for NBC.

But unlike Longoria's and Lopez's, McCarthy's show should be more action-packed. The extreme-dating show, shot in the Dominican Republic, is expected to involve various physical challenges in addition to hurdles of the heart. What's romance without a few scrapes and mosquito bites?

McCarthy herself, though, appears to be off the market: She recently told Parade that she’s “taking baby steps” with new potential beau Brian Urlacher, who plays for the Chicago Bears.
