This is really turning out to be the week of scandal comebacks. Michael Richards returned to TV on Curb Your Enthusiasm. Don Imus returned to TV on Fox Business. David Letterman—well, that one’s still in progress. And now, reports the L.A. Times, Michael Vick is getting his own reality show. The Michael Vick Project (tentative title) will chronicle his comeback stint with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Of course, Vick has already returned to football after his dogfighting scandal, but media-wise, a successful reality show may be even more important to rehabilitating his image (say, to the point where he’s palatable to advertisers). I’m admittedly not a sports fan, so I haven’t followed his story well enough to guess if that’s a realistic hope. What do the football fans out there think?
