Hammertime Part 2?

Didn't we get enough of MC Hammer in the early 1990's? Well apparently it is time to bring this has-been back into the limelight. Heck, they rejuvinated Bret Michaels' career - why not Hammer? A&E has order 11 episodes of Hammertime, a reality TV series that will show Hammer - a "new age dad" according to the network - attempt to juggle his "career" as a performer, speaker, homemaker, website developer and head of his own music label.

"Each week we'll open our home to viewers to showcase the hectic pace of our lives and our eclectic family, our real life truly is drama and there is no better place than A&E for some Hammertime," said Hammer, who is also serving as one of the show's executive producers.

"Hammertime truly captures the intimate, funny and genuine moments that resonate with our viewers and underscore the essence of our brand," said Robert Sharenow, A&E's senior vice president of nonfiction and alternative programming.

Hmmm. Why do they think we need to watch irrelevant former celebrities try to regain their youth? Somehow I don't think I will be watching this one. Drinking acid sounds like more fun.

I thought he was a minister now?

I know he was "ordained" at some point, but they don't mention that in the press release regarding the new show. I guess he wasn't making much money. Heck, he does have 7 kids to feed.
