- The It List is Yahoo's weekly look at the best in pop culture. Here are our picks for the week of June 14th.

In case you're burned out from Bachelor Nation, a new dating show has arrived. The Celebrity Dating Game is a reimagining of the classic non-celebrity version from the 1960s. Each episode follows two celebrities who must pick one lucky contestant from a hidden panel of three bachelors and bachelorettes. And instead of bizarre goofball host Chuck Barris, this version has Zooey Deschanel and Michael Bolton taking over emcee duties.

MICHAEL BOLTON: There's no apps, no phones. This is dating the old-fashioned way, separated by a wall on prime time TV.

- Kevin Hart's best known for his brand of loud and energetic comedy, but his newest project has him dipping a toe in more dramatic waters. The new movie Fatherhood features Hart as a newly widowed father trying to raise his daughter as best he can. And while Hart takes the spotlight, it features an ensemble cast including Lil Ray [? Howre ?] and Anthony Kerrigan.

- The latest offering from the big brains over at Pixar is a unique literal spin on the fish out of water movie genre. Luca, voiced by Jacob Tremblay, is a sea monster but only underwater. Once he steps ashore, he turns into a boy, setting into action a range of gags against the beautiful backdrop of the Italian Riviera.

[GASP]
