Burning Love is a hilarious spoof of dating reality shows that aired on E! from 2012-2013. The show, which was produced by Ben Stiller, features comedian Michael Ian Black as host and follows various contestants as they compete to win the heart of a single bachelor or bachelorette.

The show's first season features female firefighter Mark Orlando (Ken Marino) as the object of affection, with a roster of 16 eligible bachelorettes vying for his love. Each episode follows the women as they go on group dates, one-on-one dates, and participate in wacky challenges designed to test their compatibility with Mark. As the season progresses, the girls fall hard for Mark but also begin to play dirty to eliminate each other from the competition.

The second season of Burning Love flips the script and features bachelor fireman Julio Iglesias (played by Marino) and a group of eligible male suitors hoping to win his heart. The show's standout character in this season is Tamara, played by June Diane Raphael, who is determined to win Julio's heart despite her lack of chemistry with him. Tamara's antics and vivid personality entertained audiences throughout the season.

In the third season, Burning Love shifts gears yet again with an unexpected twist. This time, the show is a Bachelor-style competition featuring a woman, Julie Gristlewhite (June Diane Raphael), as the object of affection and a group of male suitors. However, as the season progresses, it becomes clear that Julie is not quite what she seems. The contestants begin to suspect she may not even be a real person and may be part of an elaborate prank.

Burning Love is a refreshing take on reality dating shows that pokes fun at the genre's all-too-familiar tropes. From awkward group dates to contestants who are "here for the right reasons," the show's writers expertly parody the most common dating show cliches while also creating over-the-top moments that are uniquely hilarious.

In addition to Michael Ian Black, the show features a star-studded cast of comedians and actors, including Kristen Bell, Adam Scott, Rob Huebel, and many others. The show's talented cast and smart writing make for an incredibly entertaining viewing experience.

Overall, Burning Love is a must-watch for fans of reality dating shows and comedy. The show's witty writing, hilarious characters, and talented cast make it one of the most hilarious and enjoyable spoofs of the genre. Whether you're a die-hard Bachelor fan or simply looking for a laugh, Burning Love is sure to deliver.

Burning Love is a series that is currently running and has 3 seasons (25 episodes). The series first aired on February 25, 2013.
