[via press release from CBS]

VIEWER VOTING STARTS TODAY AS THE AUDIENCE DETERMINES THE "HOOK ME UP" LOVE CONNECTION

Web-Exclusive Series "HOOK ME UP" Premieres Today On CBS's Broadband Channel Innertube

Sarah Kruger ("The New Adventures of Old Christine") Hosts the Show

HOOK ME UP, a new online reality series that follows four singles as they brave the world of online dating and letting internet audiences determine their perfect match, premieres on CBS's broadband channel innertube today, Monday, Oct. 2. Actress Sarah Kruger ("The New Adventures Of Old Christine") will host the web-only series. New episodes will post every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Online voting is open now. Viewers can logon to www.cbs.com/hookmeup and vote for their favorite suitor. With every original episode on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, voting starts at 9 AM ET and closes at 5PM ET the same day.

HOOK ME UP chronicles a series of dates that the contestants go on as they are courted by four suitors, each vying for the contestants' affections. In each five-minute episode of HOOK ME UP, one of the contestants goes out on a date with his or her four suitors. Following that episode, viewers decide which suitors come back for another date, as the pool is whittled down from four to one. As the dating experience of each contestant comes to an end, another one will start on their quest for love. In another twist, a piece of information (like occupation or wealth) about all four suitors will be withheld during the dates. Will this secret, when revealed at the end, impact the love connection?

Host Sarah Kruger is an actress from Hesperia, Calif. Her television credits include "The New Adventures Of Old Christine" and "Listen Up," both on the Network, as well as "What I Like About You," "Joey," "24" and "Passions." Kruger is an active sports buff who loves kickboxing and playing beach volleyball. She attended California State University Fullerton and majored in theater. She currently lives in California with her husband, Jason, and their dogs Murphy and Isabella.

CBS's innertube, an advertising-supported broadband channel, offers a wide range of free entertainment programming to Internet users and can be accessed through CBS.com. HOOK ME UP will be sponsored by Dentyne chewing gum, a Cadbury Adams USA brand, and Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications.
