Not even the sordid details of how he almost donated sperm to Liza Minnelli were enough to find Scott Baio a publisher for his romantic tell-all. But that hasn't stopped the washed-up actor from pursuing a career in that other medium for washed-up actors: reality television.

The former Charles in Charge star is set to chronicle his dating life in L.A. for a VH1 show tentatively titled, Scott Baio is 45 ... And Single. Although no premiere date has been picked, a source close to production tells Radar, "it's essentially Scott Baio running around on dates trying to find a girlfriend. It's sort of sad."

Especially considering that, when asked a while ago whether he'd ever consider a reality show, Baio told Radar:

No. I just think it's very indulgent, self-serving. It's just not what I want to do with my life. I don't want to be that guy. I don't have to be that guy. I know this is a cyclical business, and I'm not going to do something that's going to hurt my future work. Plus, I just hate those shows. I can't comment on why anyone else would do it. I just don't know.
