VH1 announces summer schedule

New York Today, VH1 announced its summer schedule, replete with documentaries, events and all-new celebreality shows. So far, VH1 has only been touting its new reality competition series I Love Money, which pits cast members from Rock of Love, Flavor of Love and I Love New York against each other for a $250,000 cash prize. But, now we have the full schedule for the summer season.

After the jump, I'll tell you about the new shows...

New Shows:

Brooke Knows Best (premieres July 13th at 10 p.m.) This show will focus on Brooke's life in Miami post-Hogan Knows Best and will follow Brooke's roommates Ashley and Glenn too. Wait, she's living with a guy? Does Hulk know about this?

Glad God with Vivica A. Fox (premieres August 21st) Fox will host this competition show that searches for the next great celebrity "stylista." The reward? The winner will get $100,000 as well as a career styling an A-list celebrity.

I Want to Work for Diddy (premieres August 4th) You saw this one already. It was called Making the Band. Just kiddin'. This competition will track 13 contestants as they battle it out to get the job of a lifetime: assistant to the hip-hop mogul Diddy. Although I'm not so sure being Diddy's assistant is the job of a lifetime.

Luke's Parental Advisory (premieres August 4th at 10:30 p.m.) I swooned for a moment and thought this show would follow Luke Perry, the one and only Dylan McKay from 90210. But alas, it's about Luke Campbell, hype man for 2 Live Crew. The series will tag along as Campbell balances his kids, his fiance, life in suburbia and his adult entertainment company.

New York Goes to Hollywood (premieres August 4th at 10 p.m.) I knew she'd be back. She can't stay away long. New York, who is already a star (you betta ask somebody!), wants to be a legit A-list actress. And it looks like Tailor-Made (winner of season 2 of I Love New York) will not be joining her: "To focus on her new mission, New York has to put her last conquest, Tailor Made, on the backburner as she tries to take on Tinsel Town."

The Cho Show (premieres August 21st) It sounds like Kathy Griffin's My Life on the D List: "The series will touch upon all aspects of Margaret's "anything goes" lifestyle, from the strained and awkward moments provided by her somewhat traditional Korean parents, to the more irreverent and outrageous moments shared with her colorful cast of friends and colleagues."

Other Shows

I Love the New Millennium is premiering Thursday July 23rd at 9 p.m. and will be on nightly at 10 p.m.

VH1 Rock Honors
will be held on July 17th at 9 p.m. VH1 will pay tribute for 2 hours to The Who (the first time the show has only included one band / artist).

VH1 Rock Doc: Elton John: Me, Myself and I
will be aired on June 12th at 9 p.m.

VH1 will also be airing reruns of The Bachelor (snore) starting June 1st and ending June 7th. You read that correctly. They will be showing all seven seasons of the show in one week. I love VH1, but this is not a good idea. What do you think? At least it will be over in a week.

Which of these shows (if any) look interesting to you? Personally, I can't wait for New York Goes to Hollywood.

I'm with you--I can't wait for The Return of New York. It'll be like my birthday present from VH1. But most of all, I look forward to I Love Money. I just wish they'd gotten a few of the guys from Kept (from a few years back, be Jerri Hall's kept man) as well as the manks from ILNY.

I Love the New Millennium... Ha! It's just like that MadTV skit!

Oh God I hate the world.

I'd like them to get back to showing videos.

What about The World Series of Pop Culture? Is it not coming back on this summer? That was a great fun time each week.

I like the trashy tv on VH1. It's a trainwreck, and those are always fun to watch.

I'm sooo looking forward to I Love Money.

Vivica A. Fox better not be the "A-List" celebrity prize, that'd be laughable...don't understand why this isn't on the Style Network, or something smaller. Maybe we'll find out why 50 Cent said she was too ghetto! Tho, not really looking forward to this one, seems a snoozer.

I Want to Work for a Megalomaniac belongs on MTV. That'll be an interesting show though, especially if it centers on the music side of things, as working in music is unlike working anywhere else...

TOTALLY looking forward to Margaret Cho! That's exciting!

I just cannot wait until VH1 Classic starts airing reruns of New York and some of these other winners. What the hell does Brooke Hogan have to offer the world? Yikes.

Andy Warhol must be rolling over in his grave with this over abundance of people with their 15 minutes of fame.

Wait a minute, the new millennium hasn't ended yet! You can't do a retrospective on a decade that hasn't ended yet!
