"Love At First Swipe" (TLC, Fri. at 9 p.m.)
Remember when we just had makeover shows in which style consultants would rip through closets, toss out raggedy jeans and occasionally make a middle-aged frump cry? In theory, the fully-humiliated makeover victim went home feeling empowered with a new discount blazer from T.J. Maxx, but you know she just put on her sweatpants and cried in front of the television for a week. Now we have a show with all that fake feel-goodness, plus the added fun of shaming victims for being single! On this show, former "What Not to Wear" host Clinton Kelly and "online dating guru" Devyn Simone (who was also a "The Real World" cast member) tear apart singletons' looks AND their online dating profiles! Then, they kick puppies and tell children that Santa is real, but he hates them.
