Read This: Fairly Predictable Edition

From an episode of National Geographic's "Dog Town II": Georgia, a toothless pit bull rescued from Michael Vick's dog fighting ring, chews on her favorite toy at the Dog Town sanctuary in Utah. (Molly Wald / Best Friends Animal Society)

Good afternoon, everyone. Still agape over President Barack Obama's surprise Nobel Peace Prize win? Here's something somewhat less surprising: Michael Vick is getting his own reality TV show.

Six months ago, Lisa de Moraes reports, Vick's rep swore that the former NFL star wasn't shopping around a reality series about his efforts to clean up his image after doing time for participating in a dog fighting ring. But! In a press release, BET says it has picked up a reality series about just that:

The eight-part series "chronicles the trials, tribulations and triumphs of NFL star Michael Vick," the Viacom-owned cable network says in a news release it plans to put out Friday, a copy of which was obtained by The TV Column.

But: "The producers and BET, however, insist it's a 'docu-series' rather than a 'reality series.'" Oh! Well, good to know.

And: Movies! See what the critics have to say about "Couples Retreat," "Good Hair," "A Serious Man" and "Coco Before Chanel."
