Casting notice posted for I Love New York 2

When Tango dumped New York on the I Love New York reunion, he made a second season of the show possible. Now, a casting notice posted on Reality Wanted is advertising for a second season of the show, searching for straight men who are ages 21 to 36 and have “extreme personalities.”

That certainly fits the show, although the casting notice doesn’t exactly work to convince us of its legitimacy. It’s written in all caps, includes run-on sentences, asks would-be New York suitors to send e.mail to a Yahoo address, and starts by addressing “my fellow sexy single men.” Yeah.

In addition, VH1 has yet to renew the series or even suggest that it would. However, since its finale was VH1’s second-highest-rated finale ever, that wouldn’t be a surprise.

Here’s what it says:

HEY MY FELLOW SEXY SINGLE MEN. YES IT’S OFFICIAL I’M CASTING SEASON 2 OF “I LOVE NEW YORK”. I’M CASTING ALL TYPES AND ETHNIC BACKGROUNDS. MY BREAKDOWN IS THIS AND PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT UNLESS YOU FIT THE BREAKDOWN AND FOLLOW SUBMISSION GUIDELINES.

STRAIGHT MEN AGES-21 TO 36
ALL RACES:

The Sing-Off loses its star

Ben Folds

NBC's super-fun December a capella singing competition The Sing-Off is returning, but without its star judge, Ben Folds, and only as a two-hour special. Those are really depressing changes for a series that proved itself to be a super-fun show when it returned last December.
