Saw a commercial for this tonight. It sounds howlingly bad.
Yes, I get the "message" aspect of this (that age shouldn't matter) but you could just SEE the cheese in the commercial.
Here's a link to NBC website for the show:

Here's the basic press release on this silly endevour:
NEWS TENNIS ACE TO TEST THE AGE OF LOVE Music, movie & Entertainment News
If you look around the web a bit, its apparent that this Tennis player, Mark Philippoussis, who is the show's Bachelor, er... or whatever we call him, already has a somewhat notorious romantic past, including rumors about uber-skanks Tara Reid and Paris Hilton, and somewhat less skanky fellow tennis player Anna Kournikova.Aussie tennis ace MARK PHILIPPOUSIS is set to cash in on his reputation as an international playboy as the star of a new U.S. dating show.
The sports hunk, who briefly dated singer Delta Goodrem and reportedly romanced Paris Hilton and Tara Reid, will be the object of affection in new show Age of Love.
Philippousis will pick possible suitors from two dating groups, made up of 40-something and 20-something women.
The 30-year-old star admits he's the perfect choice to romance the girls on the summer (07) show - because he never chooses girlfriends by their age.
He says, "I just love a woman who loves to smile and laugh." The show debuts on 18 June (07).
There's no evidence to suggest that he has, in fact, actually dated women of all ages before this. At least from the stuff about him already around the Net.
