Fox has been running a 10-second ad about its upcoming TV show "Take Me Out". The format seems almost identical to "非诚勿扰". The U.S. show is supposedly a copycat of the U.K. version of "Take Me Out", which in turn was based on the Australian show "Taken Out".
Taken Out is an Australian television dating game show that was originally broadcast on Network Ten between 1 September 2008 and 26 February 2009. The format was developed by FremantleMedia and was hosted by James Kerley, a Foxtel television presenter who has also hosted shows such as Cash Cab and The Dave & Kerley Show.
British, Irish and Philippine versions of the show have been developed under the name Take Me Out. Versions have also been made in Denmark, Indonesia, the Netherlands, Sweden, Finland, Spain, China, United States and Japan.
