Reality dating experiment I WANNA MARRY “HARRY” will now premiere one week earlier on Tuesday, May 20 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), immediately following the first night of the two-night Season Finale of AMERICAN IDOL XIII (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX.
Improv comedy series RIOT returns and makes its time period premiere Tuesday, May 27 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), followed by an all-new episode of I WANNA MARRY “HARRY” (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).
On the series premiere of I WANNA MARRY “HARRY,” airing Tuesday, May 20 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), reality meets romance, with a little twist, when 12 American women are flown to England to meet their potential “Prince Charming.” What they don’t know is that they’ll be meeting Matthew Hicks, an average English “bloke” who bears a remarkable resemblance to Prince Harry. See what happens when these beautiful ladies see their “prince” for the first time at a “royal” masquerade ball and find out if they fall for the charade.
On the next all-new episode of RIOT, airing Tuesday, May 27 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), two of television’s favorite comedy stars, Jason Alexander and Cheryl Hines, are featured in the wackiest and funniest song, dance and sketch challenges, while navigating the show’s trademark one-of-a-kind set, tilted at a 22-degree angle. Then, on I WANNA MARRY “HARRY” (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), one of the ladies enjoys the first one-on-one date with “Sir” and the two take a helicopter ride to a secluded beach. Later, “Sir” challenges the ladies to a game of cricket and they have a chance to show off their athletic abilities.
