The Bachelor: BuddyTV Fall 2007 Preview
Premiere Date and Time: Monday, September 24, 9:30pm (special 90-minute premiere)

Network: ABC

Time Slot Competition: Journeyman, CSI: Miami

Host: Chris Harrison

It's time for the 11th season of The Bachelor and we're all hoping for a romance that actually can go the distance.  However, whether or not the relationships last, the show sucks me in every time.  It kicks off with a 90-minute premiere to give us sufficient amounts of time to get to know all the women vying for The Bachelor's heart.  The show's first three episodes will all be 90-minutes long, before cutting back to one hour starting at 10pm on October 15.  Knowing the show, he'll probably only have a few seconds to get to know each woman on the first episode before cutting them loose based on first impressions.

This year's Bachelor is 34-year-old Brad Womack.  A good ol' Texas boy, he spent eight years working in oil fields across the country.  In the last few years, Brad and his twin brother purchased and now run popular bars in his home state.  He seems willing to settle down which is a good quality for The Bachelor to have.  Here's hoping he finds someone to have a long-lasting relationship with.  We'll be watching every rose ceremony along the way.
