    Itbwas funny first season but pulled horrendious numbers. Isn’t this a yahoo series?

  • TV Viewer

    I really like Burning Love. It’s very funny and is one of the few shows that E! makes that are actually worth watching, along with the Soup. The humor of this program proves that a limited budget with a decent script and good acting can make up for a lack of money to produce it. Reality dating programs deserve to be parodied. I wonder what other reality show genre (such as talent or survival), will be the subject of the next comedy program?

  • TV Addict

    Watch it on yahoo screen. This show is hilarious.

  • Mike

    I’m surprised at this renewal. I thought this show was only pulling a 0.1 when it’s first season aired.

  • Marjorie

    Can’t wait for the next one. It makes me laugh.
