I swear to God I am not making this up. This Bravo PR release just hit my inbox. I still am not sure if we are being punked or if this is really what we have come to. Click through for the entire bizarre announcement.
NEW YORK – September 12, 2013 – Bravo Media enters the living rooms of households and turns the cameras around — watching them watch TV — on the new half-hour unscripted series, “The People’s Couch” airing at 11:30pm ET/PT on Sunday, October 6, October 13 and October 20. Based on the successful UK show,“Gogglebox,” “The People’s Couch” is a new three-episode, limited series that features real people watching and commenting on popular shows and news from the past week. Bravo will deliver the buzziest water-cooler moments of the Fall television season by showcasing avid TV watchers in their homes, as they laugh,cry, talk, gasp, and scream at their TVs.
Each episode will feature the same homes as they watch and react to this season’s most talked-about new and returning series. Whether it is a group of sorority sisters doing their nails or grandparents watching with their technology-obsessed grandchildren, each group will bring their hilarious, unique commentary about TV’s hottest moments to the small screen.
“‘The People’s Couch’ is a funny, unfiltered comment on America’s current TV viewing habits,” said Lara Spotts, Vice President, Development, Bravo. “Continuing Bravo’s tradition of serving up pop culture in fresh, new ways, this series taps into everyone’s desire to know what others think about the shows they are watching.”
“The People’s Couch” is produced by Studio Lambert and All3Media America with Executive Producers: Stephen Lambert, Eli Holzman, Tania Alexander and Aliyah Silverstein.
