Nine plans a Date Night on Tuesdays

Nine has locked in it’s new entertainment series Date Night for Tuesdays.

Join everyday Australian singles along with their hilarious friends and families as they attempt to make a real connection online when Date Night premieres later this month. 

They laugh, cringe and squirm until they meet the person of their dream – or not – in this hilarious new dating reality narrated by Gyton Grantley.

All around Australia singles are looking for love online. Whether it’s Tinder, RSVP, Bumble or the Date Night app, finding Mr or Ms Right, or rather, Right now, is just a click away.

Date Night follows a bunch of singles from the comfort of their lounge rooms, using only a dating app and the wise counsel of wing-men and wing-women. In the search for love, family and friends comment on the pictures and profiles of fellow daters as they go. What makes a good profile picture? What makes a bad one? What are instant deal-breakers and why? Should you date someone with the same name as your dad or your ex-boyfriend?

Nine’s Head of Content, Partnerships and Development, Adrian Swift, said: “This is the show that makes choosing a date a spectator sport. Our daters and their friends give a fresh, authentic and mostly hilarious commentary on profile after profile before finally finding the right match. It shows real Aussies making real connections in a complicated online world.”

In the premiere episode, 28-year-old Faryn enlists the help of her mum and bestie to search for Mr Right. Faryn has a list of requirements as long as her arm, and has yet to find the man that meets them. Will she find a date with a man who ticks all of the boxes? Lyndal, 47, and her friend Amanda love taking a punt on the ponies and a nice glass of vino. Lyndal has put her love life in the hands of her wing-woman in the hope that Amanda will back a winner for her.

Sci-fi nerd Jason, 23, has never had a serious girlfriend, preferring to spend his Saturday nights with his movie mates and Star Wars DVDs. At 30, Ben isn’t quite ready to settle down, but for the right girl he may be convinced. Wing-man and ex-housemate Darren is lending his Irish charm to help Ben land a lady.

Date Night premieres on Nine and 9Now on Tuesday, February 13, straight after Married at First Sight.
