What's the story?
A NIGHT WITH MY EX is an unscripted series featuring former couples spending a night together in a hotel in front of cameras to hash out what happened between them. Each set of exes uses the time to discuss why they broke up and their goals for the future. Questions they should ask each other are also provided. The next morning, they must determine if they will continue to remain exes, or if there is any potential for rekindling their relationship.
Is it any good?
This slow-moving reality show offers viewers a chance to see how former couples interact with each other when put into an intimate situation for 24 hours. True to form, most of each episode features the stars talking, arguing, and testing their sexual attraction to one another.
Some folks will enjoy watching the uncomfortable moments unfold. But despite some lackluster drama, the overall experience doesn't offer any true teachable moments. Ultimately, A Night With My Ex is an attempt at providing audiences with an adult-themed guilty pleasure.
