Airdate: Mobbed

Next week TEN is without a new episode of Terra Nova, one of the perils of fast-tracking.

So it will screen a FOX pilot of Mobbed, a FOX reality series which springs flash mobs onto unsuspecting members of the public.

Hosted by Howie Mandel, the pilot focusses on a man proposing to his wife with the help of a flash mob.

This very Americanised special is essentially Candid Camera with dance. It features lots of preparation and behind the scenes content in the lead-up to the climax. But the surprise moment itself is a curious mix of being entertaining and grotesque all at the same time. Only in America.

After it attracted 10.8 million viewers, FOX decided to pick up the show for eight episodes, but so far no more have aired in the US yet.

It airs 8:30pm Sunday October 30.

    @Craig – they only need to fill an hour and they don’t have any movies others than the ones we give them stick for showing again and again. Next you’ll be asking Nine to put more TBBT repeats on. LOL
