How much does the Fox network disdain the challenge that “The Voice” on NBC has posed to its dominant singing competition, “American Idol”?

Enough to take the essence of the show and make a wholesale copy — only based on dating, not singing.

During the Wednesday edition of “Idol,” Fox announced that it would introduce a show this summer called — with a clear wink — “The Choice.” It will feature celebrities in spinning chairs deciding, in what amounts to a blind audition, which sexy single to go on a date with.

“The Choice” follows the storied tradition of Fox ripping off/having fun with some other network’s successful reality show — and that proud history has always been led by Mike Darnell, the longtime executive in charge of reality at Fox.

Mr. Darnell acknowledged in a telephone interview Wednesday night that he enjoyed this kind of competitive tweaking, “and I’m never going to change.”

He also pointed out, fairly, that he has long played with various formats for dating shows, and he took note that the “spinning chairs” presented a new way to create a kind of blind date setup.

That it might be interpreted as both a mock of and a jab at “The Voice” was not something Mr. Darnell was going to deny, but he also argued that this idea has charms of its own, harking back to the hoariest dating show of them all, “The Dating Game.”

“The chairs work better than a wall,” he said.

In “The Choice,” four celebrities will sit in the chairs and listen to what amounts to an audition from the contestants (they will pitch their backgrounds, likes and dislikes, turn-ons and turn-offs, sort of like the bios of Playboy playmates of old). The celebrity can pull his “love handle” to turn his chair around, when he will get a first look at his potential date. If more than one celebrity spins around, the woman gets to pick the man of her own choice.

But the celebrity will get three selections, who will have to compete in a “speed choice” round, before he picks one he will take on a date.

The format calls for five weeks of male celebrities’ picking women, before switching for one week to female celebrities. (In this case, ABC can take note of the coincidental similarities to its reality show “The Bachelor/Bachelorette.”)

No celebrities have been named yet, though Mr. Darnell said they have all been lined up. “We have sports stars, music stars, reality stars,” he said.

The show will run for five weeks on Fox, Thursdays nights at 9, starting on June 7.
