Will Michael Vick get the real 60 Minutes treatment?

CBS_60_minutes_watchOn Sunday, Michael Vick will be interviewed on 60 Minutes in hopes of showing contrition, making a case for his NFL comeback and generally doing as much PR as possible to rehabilitate his image. The former Atlanta Falcon quarterback and NFL poster boy is pretty desperate to get back into the league -- and the money that comes with it.

Michael Vick, as you probably know, was once the highest paid quarterback in the NFL. He was on the cover of magazines and was considered an unstoppable force on the field. Off the field, however, he was running an illegal dog-fighting business. He spent most of the last two years either in court or in prison for his involvement in a syndicate that promoted gambling and killed dogs.

Michael Vick's ex-dogs get their own show

Michael VickSeriously?! Is this what it's come to. Not only does every C- and D-List celebrity get their own reality series, but now we're giving shows to animals from the news? Sure it's great that the National Geographic Channel show Dogtown is going to try and rehabilitate the dogs that Michael Vick used in his dogfighting gambit, but is this really TV-worthy? Does the channel really need to stoop this low?

Apparently they could use the buzz, and look it worked because here we are: Nat Geo is going to chronicle the rehabilitation efforts of the 22 animals rescued in the Vick scandal, focusing on four of the toughest cases. I certainly hope they're successful, because I think if an animal proves unable to rehabilitate, they have no choice but to put it down. That'd make for a hell of a downer to end the series. "In the end, the dogs were too far gone, hopelessly driven by fear and violence. Let us now say goodbye as they take their final slumber into eternity ... Damn you, Michael Vick! Damn you straight to hell!" Then PETA stages a protest.

Alan WeismanApparently, Michael Vick's dogfighting troubles are still going pretty strong. Somehow, Jon managed to work in a joke about dogs playing poker. Hmm.

"Operation: Fluffy Bunny": Senior Baghdad Correspondent Rob Riggle filed a report that was slightly less pointless than that of last night. He and the crew must be working so hard on these specials. I hope they get something really good soon, so that their efforts will not have been in vain. I mean, the best they've managed to do so far is come up with a list of dildo types. Come on.
