PEREZ HILTON HOSTS DRAMA-FILLED TWO-PART “BAD GIRLS CLUB” REUNION
ON OXYGEN PREMIERING MARCH 16 AND 23 at 10pm ET/PT
Network Also Launches “Love Games: Bad Girls Need Love Too” on Tuesday, March 16 at 11pm ET/PT and Returning Fan-Favorite “Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood” on Monday, April 5 at 10pm ET/PT
NEW YORK, NY, JANUARY 26, 2010 – Oxygen kicks off a fresh slate of original programming this spring with the highly anticipated two-part “Bad Girls Club” reunion special on Tuesday, March 16 and 23 at 10pm ET/PT. Gossip enthusiast Perez Hilton returns as host for another year of hot tempers and drama-filled fun. On the heels of the series delivering Oxygen’s first-ever telecast to draw over two million viewers, the ladies reunite for the first time since living together and in true “Bad Girls Club” fashion, emotions are high and mayhem ensues as Hilton instigates rivalries and plans surprise guest visits.
“Last year’s reunion special was tame compared to this one! Last year was a 5 in comparison. This was an 11,” said Perez Hilton. “I am lucky to have made it out alive, although by the end of the marathon taping I did become slightly insane. The crazy is contagious! You won’t want to miss this reunion special. Trust me! Even I was shocked by everything that happened!”
Last week’s episode of “Bad Girls Club” season four became the sixth telecast in Oxygen history to draw more than one million, A18-49 and the first to draw over one million, W18-49. During the current season of “Bad Girls Club,” five of the telecasts have delivered over one million A18-49 viewers while last week’s episode drew over two million total viewers — no other Oxygen series ever accomplished this feat.
Viewers also have two great reasons to make plans with Oxygen on Monday and Tuesdays nights starting in March. On March 16 and 23 , following parts one and two of the reunion special, “Bad Girls Club” fans are in for an extra treat when the network premieres the new dating competition series “Love Games: Bad Girls Need Love Too” at 11pm ET/PT. “Love Games” will air at a special time, 11pm ET/PT, immediately following the drama-filled “Bad Girls Club” reunion specials, and move to its regular timeslot beginning March 30 at 10pm ET/PT. Also, Oxygen’s favorite family, the Spelling-McDermotts are back and moving into their new night on Monday, April 5 at 10pm ET/PT for season five of “Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood.”
“Love Games: Bad Girls Need Love Too”
A spin-off of the record breaking series “Bad Girls Club,” “Love Games” features three former Bad Girls — Amber (season three), Kendra (season four) and Sarah (season three) vying for the man of their dreams from a pool of 13 eligible bachelors. How “bad” will these girls be when love is on the line? After a series of lively challenges and intimate group dates each week, in the end, only one Bad Girl and her beau will be left standing. Comedian Bret Ernst (“Wild West Comedy Show”) hosts the eight one-hour episode series.
The dating competition series is produced by Bunim-Murray productions with Jonathan Murray, Gil Goldschein, Brandon Wilson and Jeff Schmidt serving as executive producers. Tess Gamboa is co-executive producer.
“Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood”
Returning for a fifth season is the popular and record-breaking reality series “Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood,” premiering this spring. In the new season, Tori and Dean will offer an even closer look into their family life and at their own relationship, which will include a first-ever Spelling-McDermott cross-country family road trip. When the season kicks off, fans will be treated to a fun-filled, bumpy ride while Tori and Dean take turns at the wheel. Last season, “Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood” became Oxygen’s most watched season among A18-49, W18-49 and total viewers. In addition, the series finale marked another Oxygen first, delivering over one million viewers in the key A18-49 demo.
Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott created the series and executive produce the series along with Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato of World of Wonder Productions. Richard Courtney and Robert Sizemore serve as co-executive producers.
