Football fan or not, you’ve probably gotten accustomed to the antics of NFL veteran Terrell Owens, which is why it should have come as no surprise when it was announced that he would be starring in his own reality show on VH1 called The T.O. Show.
Somehow, though, it was still a little surprising. Even more so, it doesn’t look like he’s going to piss me off nearly as much as I’d have expected. It actually looks pretty funny and we may be in store for some classic TV moments as we watch Owens’ struggle between the Hollywood glam that made him famous and the small town icon he’s apparently trying to become. Take note at about the 3:50 mark when T.O.’s dad explains, “I wasn’t a bad dad, I just couldn’t be there.” I can’t wait to hear him try to justify that.
The T.O. Show premieres on VH1 July 20 at 10/9c.
