On deck is Pete Rose, the all-time hit king of Major League Baseball who remains out of the Hall of Fame for betting on the Cincinnati Reds while has was managing . . . the Cincinnati Reds.

His show, cutely titled "Pete Rose: Hits & Mrs.", is about his life and his impending wedding to former Playboy model Kiana Kim.

The show premieres Monday, Jan. 14, at 10 p.m. ET on TLC.

Digest this all as you see fit, including the teaser video and outtakes/soundbites video below.
