TLC Debuts Pete Rose's "Hits & Mrs." On Heels Of HOF Vote
TLC's reality show “Hits & Mrs.” featuring former MLBer Pete Rose debuts tonight at 10:00pm ET before moving to Mondays. TLC is releasing the show on the heels of the Baseball HOF vote results, a “strategy also employed nine years ago" for the release of Rose's book, "My Prison Without Bars." Rose in the series “presents himself as an overgrown teenager and a genial chauvinist with an impervious ego and a Neanderthal sense of humor” (N.Y. TIMES, 1/12). Rose’s exclusion from the HOF “forms a natural plotline” (SI, 1/14 issue).
