Pete Rose: Hits and Mrs.

When it was first announced that Pete Rose and his fiance Kiana Kim were going to be the stars of their own TLC reality series...I was skeptical.

I mean, would a show about baseball's all-time hit king and a former Playboy model be all that interesting?

Turns out...yes.  Yes, it is.

And here's why.

After just a couple of minutes, you learn that Rose is exactly the dirty old man you figured he would be.  And, Kim, well...she's every bit the plastic future-trophy wife you'd expect.  But, beneath all that, they both seem to genuinely care about each other and, honestly, that's what you want from a show that, among other things, is showcasing the differences between a 71-year-old and his much younger wife-to-be.

I just wish someone would cut the cord between Kim's daughter Cassie and her cell phone.  Oooooh, kids these days!

Hit King...I know you're reading this.  Perhaps fodder for a future episode?  Hint.  Hint. 

So, in case you missed it, enjoy "Pete Rose: Hits and Mrs." online while you still can.  And, yeah, my favorite part...the monogrammed "Hit King" collared shirts. 

Super classy.  I want.
