These days, it seems that if any formerly famous person picks up a phone and calls a television producer, they can have a reality show on television by the end of the day.
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.
