We've all read about Shaq's new reality show. It starts with a competition against Big Ben tonight on ABC. The Big Witness has battled Albert Pujols in a home-run derby, paired up for sand volleyball against the gold-medal winning duo from the last Olympics, and will square off against Michael Phelps and more superstars for his reality show.
Surely the quotatious one promises exciting television — or at least as exciting as reality programming can get. But how high the ratings rise or how low they fall remains to be seen.
Shaq Vs. is on at 9 p.m. and is up against Big Brother 11, More to Love, and America's Got Talent on the other major networks — reality shows all. There's no football or MLB on nationally tonight (although there is the Little League World Series).
At that time slot, strong competition could come from "I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant" on Discovery Health, or "Daddy's Girls" on MTV, so we'll just have to wait and see.
