“Love Connection” has been pulled out of the dumpster and relaunched on Fox.

“Bachelor” creator Mike Fleiss is responsible for bringing back this ’80s/’90s dating show, which sends a single person on three blind dates and then asks them to pick one for a second date. “Real Housewives” producer Andy Cohen is the host, striving to be as smarmy as inhumanly possible (he asks if a kiss was “nice tongue or darty tongue”). Fox will flush out 15 episodes this summer (Thursdays at 9 p.m.).

It’s not exactly the same show as it used to be. This is 2017, for gosh sake, so “Connection” needs horrifying new gimmicks. The dater and the three dates rate each other on physical appearance! The studio audience picks a favorite of the three dates, just like in the original show, only now there’s a catch: If the audience and dater choose differently, the dater can either a) dump his or her favorite, go with the audience pick and win $10,000 or b) stick with the favorite and get no cash. Also, the follow-up date is an “overnight” affair, because really, who wouldn’t want to spend the night with a stranger you’ve met once on a reality show?

“Connection” has tremendous value as a guide for how not to play the dating game. One bachelor griped that a date ate four out of his five meatballs at dinner and was “a little bigger than I’m used to,” which prompted her to declare with great fabulosity: “You wish you could touch this!” A guy with a man bun took his date to an “escape room” and when she was kicked out for using her phone, he stayed in the room rather than leave with her.

That same woman turned down $10K to stick with her favorite guy rather than ditch him for the audience pick (inexplicably, Mr. Man Bun). Then she stood up her man for the overnighter because she heard he’d dated a Playboy bunny right before the show and bragged about it.

May I suggest a subtle tweak to the show’s title: “Love Rejection.”
