ULTIMATE FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP PRESIDENT DANA WHITE AND THE FOOD NETWORK'S TYLER FLORENCE MAKE SPECIAL GUEST-APPEARANCES ON UPCOMING EPISODES OF NBC'S NEW DATING SERIES 'MOMMA'S BOYS'

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - December 8, 2008 -- Dana White, President of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, and Tyler Florence, famous chef and star of the Food Network, will guest-star on upcoming episodes of NBC's new dating series "Momma's Boys" (December 16 premiere) which centers around three possessive, yet loving mothers who must help their complacent sons choose the perfect woman -- and ultimately poses the question: "Who is really the most important woman in every man's life?"

White will guest-star in the series' two-hour second episode on Monday, December 22 (9-11 p.m.) and Florence will guest star in the third episode airing Monday, December 29 (10-11 p.m. ET).

Following are episode descriptions.

MOMMA'S BOYS

MONDAY, DECEMBER 22 (9-11 p.m. ET)

In the aftermath of the women's face-off with Mrs. Bojanowski, they must now take on their first suitability challenge. White and some of the UFC's top trainers and fighters put the 32 women through a demanding physical challenge as the Moms look on to determine which of the young women are the best mates for their sons. The competition is fierce and the four women who win the challenge are exempt from the boys' first elimination.

MOMMA'S BOYS

MONDAY, DECEMBER 29 (10-11p.m. ET)

When files containing information from the women's past arrive at the house the women learn they must win the next challenge in order to keep their files from being revealed to the moms. Star of the Food Network, chef Tyler Florence, presents the women with their next suitability challenge - a cooking competition in which they must make either the boys' favorite meal or impress them with their own personal recipes. The winners of this challenge, decided by Florence and the boys, are exempt from having their files revealed to the moms.

"Momma's Boys," the mother of all reality dating shows -- from multimedia talent-producer, Ryan Seacrest of Ryan Seacrest Productions (RSP), and Glassman Media -- is a unique reality dating series where over the course of six weeks, viewers will watch the intense, emotional showdowns and rivalries, as well as the raw, personal moments between mother and son. All of this will unfold as 32 single women -- some classy and some brassy -- vie for the attention of the three eligible bachelors and their mothers who live with them throughout the series. "Momma's Boys" will uncover the conflicts between a mother's wishes and a son's desires and reveal the truth about who plays a more crucial role in a young man's life -- his mother or his significant other.

"Momma's Boys" is a production of Ryan Seacrest Productions and Glassman Media. Andrew Glassman ("Average Joe") and Seacrest are the executive producers. Eliot Goldberg and Grant Julian will serve as co-executive producers.
