The Littlest Groom debuts tonight.

FOX tonight begins its two-week sociological exploration of love among little people who happen to be on a FOX TV show that introduces average-sized women into the mix to create conflict.

The Littlest Groom debuts at 8 p.m. ET., and stars Glen Foster, who’s 23 and four feet, five inches tall and once was the Philadelphia 76ers mascot “Little G.” He says he’s trying to bring awareness to average-sized people. “Not everybody gets to see little people every day. It’s getting a chance to see an intimate view of a little person’s dating life,” he tells the New York Daily News. He doesn’t say if he selects a little person or one of the average-sized women FOX throws in for extra ratings, but he does reveal that they’re still together.

Glen says he responded to an ad posted by the Little People of America, which now tells the AP that they’re “mildly concerned” over the show, but “remain neutral.” Boy Meets Boy’s Dani Behr hosts.

+ also: Seinfeld’s Mickey says “if it was called, for example, ‘The Blackest Groom,’ there would be an outrage.”
