Another Dropped Pass

Author: peace63 from Valencia, Spain

Let me tell you about the T.O. Show. It is the promotional vehicle for the egomania of a former NFL player who was known as the locker room cancer of every team that he played for.

T.O. burned every bridge at every team, and then spent all his time talking about what a great guy he is on his T.O. Show. This is perhaps the worst example of what an infomercial should be. If T.O. has ever done one nice thing for anyone, nobody has heard about it.

Along with T.O., the bottom feeding agents were occasionally featured, so that they could puff themselves up and talk about how much money they were making for their clients. It doesn't get any more shallow than this.

Here is some basic info about "The T.O. Show" -- a reality show produced by VH1/MTV.

T.O. is Terrell Owens, a very wealthy NFL football player. He is big and athletic yet charming, good natured, respectful to the family that raised him, and easy to like. But, he also has some weaknesses. Watching the series it becomes clear that T.O. is the spoiled and helpless type. Basic chores and activities are all done for him. He is also a playboy pretty much having a new romance in each episode. The qualities and personality of his lady of the moment matter not because we all know that ten minutes later he will be calling out, "next!".

Kita Williams and Monique Jackson are T.O.'s publicity agents technically, but in practice they are really his personal handlers. They are also his self-described matchmakers, therapists, and best friends.

Pablo Cosby is credited as T.O.'s body guard, but he is more of a best bud. His personality is much like T.O.'s.

As reality TV series go, this one is easy to watch. The T.O. Show is produced for, and shown on, Vh1, but it could easily find a home on any of many TV networks. It would be interesting to schedule the surreal fantasy life that is the T.O. Show with the grit and realism of the Direct TV drama Friday Night Lights. Anyway, it will be interesting to see how long the T.O. Show lasts.
