Take Me Out is an American dating game show that is broadcast on Fox. It is based on the British show of the same name, which in turn is based on the original Australian show Taken Out and created based on the success of the international versions. The host is George Lopez. It premiered on June 7, 2012, at 8:00 p.m. in Canada and the United States with ratings of 3.3 million. On July 3, 2012, Fox announced that the show would be removed from its Thursday night timeslot and be relegated to Saturday nights, starting on July 14, 2012 to make room for Mobbed, but just three days later, following a increase in ratings over the previous episodes, Fox announced that the show would remain in its Thursday night timeslot.
