VH1 Swoops Up 'Basketball Wives': Is It the Next 'Real Housewives'?

by Michael D. Ayers, posted Dec 8th 2009 2:00PM
Ever wonder what it's like behind the scenes for a professional basketball player's wife? Well, here's your chance to find out.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, VH1 is answering that call with a new series called 'Basketball Wives,' putting Shaquille O'Neal's wife Shaunie on center court.

Joining her will be the wives and girlfriends of NBA stars Eric Williams, Antoine Walker, Jermaine O'Neal and Udonis Haslem. Yet not in the mix is probably the most famous NBA wife: 'Desperate Housewives' star Eva Longoria Parker, who is married to San Antonio Spurs star point guard Tony Parker.

Some of those reality show participants deserve Reality Hell

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 24th 2009 11:03AM
Reality HellWhen reality shows first started to gain a lot of traction after Survivor, I had a tendency to at least sample most of what's on the air. Now, that would be an impossible task. The airwaves are overstuffed with so much reality crap that it's getting harder and harder to find any of them worth watching.

Even worse is the caliber of contestants. After early reality "stars" gained notoriety and temporary fame, suddenly any obnoxious bozo who wants attention is jumping into reality television. Now the show's as much about the ridiculous contestants as it is about the premise. It is in regards to this that E!s new take on reality holds promise.

Reality Hell airs Sundays at 10:30 PM ET on E!. We're two episodes in; the premiere tackled modeling shows, while this week's episode took on wife swapping. So far, they're one for two.

What to Watch Friday, May 1

Wife Swap'Wife Swap' and 'Supernanny'
(8PM & 9PM, ABC) 5th season finales
In this corner: It's the Schults family, whose members love Halloween so much that they cover their walls with fake blood and operate a creepy haunted house.

And in the other 'Wife Swap' corner: The Smith fam, led by 63-year-old dad Allen and 54-year-old mom Christine, two no-nonsense parents who don't allow their teens to watch TV or surf the Internet ... so you can imagine the friction that ensues when the families' moms swap households for a week.

Meanwhile, 'Supernanny' Jo is tackling some sticky family issues of her own, as she ties to calm down four violent, fighting siblings and the church employee dad who's all about spanking vs. timeouts.

ABC gives early renewals to 12 shows

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Apr 23rd 2009 5:05PM
ABCIt's that time of year again when network executives are having meetings after meetings to decide which shows we should be watching next season. The CW announced the renewal of six of its shows about two months ago but besides that announcement, news of renewals have been rare when compared to news of cancellations.

Today, ABC sent out a press release confirming the twelve of its series would return for the 2009-2010 season. As you'll see after the jump, it was pretty much a given that those series would get another year either due to their ratings or the low cost of production compared to the money the show brings in with sponsors and ads.

Prison Break'Prison Break'
(9PM, Fox)
It's the beginning of the end, as the show kicks off a string of twist-filled new episodes that will lead to its series finale later this spring.

First up, Michael and Sara stick out their thumbs and hitchhike their way to Miami, while Michael's bro Linc meets up with Mama Scofield, who is not only not dead, but who lets Linc in on her plans to take over The Company – and issues her little man a warning that he should not interfere with said plan.

Elsewhere, T-Bag and the traitorous Self are hot on the trail of Scylla, and are going to be quite surprised when they find out who is in possession of the oh-so-sought-after Company database of secrets.

Why does that reality show contestant look so familiar? - VIDEO

by Eliot Glazer, posted Feb 2nd 2009 9:01AM
the amazing race mike whiteJust when you thought everyone you knew, ever, had endured their 15 minutes on some reality show, you've been hoodwinked. It's no longer just the lady in accounts payable who you spotted on Cheaters or your brother's friend whose family appeared on Wife Swap. These days, it's low-profile celebs, too, who are seeking a 16th minute, and no longer exclusively via humiliation on VH1.
