Do you have unfinished business with a partner from a previous relationship? All of the onetime couples featured on "A Night With My Ex" do, and the show is letting them tie up loose ends from the past. In each episode, a pair of exes spend a night together in a one-bedroom apartment complete with a multiple-camera setup. They are left to their own devices -- with no producers and no interruptions -- to try to hash things out. The participants get things off their chests, ask hard-hitting questions and face accusations of infidelity with the ultimate goal of achieving closure on the relationship. Sometimes that closure means a clean break, and other times it leads to renewing the spark and rekindling the romance. Regardless of the outcome, anything goes on the road to reaching that point as the couples confront their pasts -- and their futures.
There's no shortage of dating shows on cable, so shows need a unique aspect to stand out from the crowd. "Driven to Love" has that in the form of a "tricked-out love taxi," to use the network's term for the vehicle. Host Ray J serves as the driver as he helps a single person find love through five potential dates while cruising along the streets of New York City. Ray J also serves as the dater's wingman, offering advice and choosing prospective mates for the romantic meetings that happen both inside and outside the vehicle. But it's ultimately up to the dater to decide which potential suitors to give a chance. When Ray J drives up to a potential date, the single decides whether to drive past, let the suitor into the vehicle, or even kick out the current mate to let in the new one. In the end, the contestant chooses one mate with whom to go on a romantic getaway.
