Ochocinco, T.O.'s reality shows land back to back

On Sunday, July 11, the folks at VH1 will be launching a new two-pack of reality TV shows featuring two of the most enigmatic figures in all of sports.

Ochocinco:  The Ultimate Catch debuts at 9:00 p.m. ET, with a 90-minute launch.  Season two of The T.O. Show begins at 10:30 p.m. ET.

As of July 18, Ochocinco’s show shrinks to 60 minutes, with The T.O. Show moving to 10:00 p.m. ET.

The early program boasts “a mix of Ochocinco’s on-field charisma blended with the drama of the
dating pool played out in a bracket-style dating tournament.”  Vikings receiver Bernard Berrian will play the role of a quasi-Ed McMahon, helping Ochocinco narrow the field that begins with (what else?) 85 women. 

The press release regarding the two shows describes the second half of the double feature as follows:   “Terrell Owens’ one-year contract with the Buffalo Bills ends in a
disappointing season and once again the football star is faced with the
uncertainty of where he will play next year.  Or, if he even wants to
play anymore
.”

Spoiler alert — Owens wants to play, as evidenced by his recent appearance on NFL Network.

Frankly, we’d prefer that both men confine their appearances to the league-owned broadcast operation.  But these aging wideouts know in their hearts that they’ll soon be nudged out of the spotlight provided by pro football, and so they need to find another way to get their money for nothing, and their chicks for free.

  1. The last word that should precede “show” for any program about Owens or 85 is “reality.”

  2. I’d rather watch the Real Housewives of _______. Those entitled, gold-digging whores are more tolerable than these two washed up drama queens.

  3. Wow, 2 straight hours of TV programming featuring the sports’ two most egotistical mindless dummies…. I guess stupid people have to have something to watch on the tube. I bet the lead endorsers for commericals will sell such products as: Hooked on Phonics, Kaplan Tutoring Centers, Earl Shive’s Car Painting Service, Eastern Motors (Where you job is your credit), and political announcements regarding global warming featuring Al Gore.

  4. I find it offensive that the term “Reality” has any association whatsover with T.O. and “Ochocinco.

  5. The best part about this article is the song reference. Post something about Big Ben so all the Steelers fans will get pissed off about how everone hates them.

  6. It’s very thoughtful of VH1 to keep the shows together on the schedule so I can avoid them easier. Kind of like robbing a house and all of the valuables are already in a box by the door for you.

  7. I’ll watch Ocho… He was reason anyone watched Hard Knocks last summer, and you know it.

  8. I like Ocho. I think he is a legit funny dude and a pretty nice guy and a good player representative of game, considering he stays out of off the field trouble.
    But c’mon man, we’ve seen this stupid format repeated a million times. It was never good television and nothing Chad can bring to the table to change that.
    Shepard out.

  9. I like both of these guys and TO gave you a different perspective of himself courtesy of the show. It’s a good show, don’t knock it until you check it out. Don’t hate, congratulate dawg, football careers don’t last long, ask Jim Brown a legend on and off the field.

  10. 60 minutes of me-first, douchebaggery…..yawn. Good thing no one’s thought of that before.

    That Ochocinco he’s a millionaire
    As a Bengals fan, I should be upset that you inserted Ochocinco where little F—-t appears in the song, but it’s too clever and funny for me to care. Good work.

  12. Do you think Bernard Berrian will get injured everytime the camera shows him doing anything kind of like when he’s on the football field?

    Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Both the shows will be filmed in the bars in Milledgeville, Ga. and Will Ferrell will co-host.
    Deb, Frank Burns and the crew will be the barfly’s.

    Well said.

  15. Do either realize how terrible their shows will be? I mean, nobody will watch but their idiotic extreme fans

    Hey Bious.. How many players does your team have that anyne gives a crap about?
    ==================================
    I would guess that Bious will wait for his teams shows that start at the beginning of the season and run well into the playoffs…….

  17. “and so they need to find another way to get their money for nothing, and their chicks for free.”
    Someone sounds jealous, i dont think being a WR in the NFL constitutes as doing nothing for their money and their chicks…
