    It's pleasant, but not promising enough to care about beyond a one-episode stand. [19 Jun 2006, p.37]

    Having four women with sufficiently distinct personalities and a pleasant tone should help the show secure some viewership, but it really belongs on a specialized femme-oriented cable net.

    Guy is almost that bad date that makes for a good story, but instead it's just a bad date that won't say good night. [16 Jun 2006, p.70]
  4. It's an artificial conceit for a superficial show.
  5. 12
    A ridiculous, cloying, condescending, wrong-headed reality show.
  6. 10
    Would more accurately be called "How to Get A Guy, Any Guy" or better yet, "How to Cast a Great, Big, Wide Net Like the Soulless, Whoring Sea Donkey That You Are."
  7. "How to Get the Guy" doesn't have to worry about a slow slide: It starts out about as low as you can go.

    It was a great show about normal women, not porn stars or actresses. It was a realistic portrayal of smart, nice women who have a hard time in the dating world. Let us see the ending!! Expand

    I was dissappointed when the show cancelled. I was waiting to see who they ended up with. Is it coming back on?

    Wait...isn't one of the hosts from some home decorating show? But now she's a dating expert? I have to admit this show is a guilty pleasure of mine. Perhaps that's why I don't have any dates - I'm cooped up in the house watching others date - instead of experiencing the real thing! Ah, "reality" tv. Expand

    Utterly embarrassing, a waste of airtime. Who on earth would set a het dating show in San Francisco? The "coaches" are annoying, and the victims are hard to believe as having problems getting a date. Just a terrible show. Watch a test pattern instead. Expand
