For reasons far beyond my comprehension, A&E has greenlit 11 episodes of MC Hammer doing whatever it is he does with his family. Yay, another reality show.
Executive producer J.D. Roth said the show likely will play similar to an unscripted version of the Huxtable family from “The Cosby Show.”
“Here’s a dad with five kids, married to the same woman for more than 23 years, living in the same place where he grew up and going to church every Sunday,” Roth said. “He’s had his ups and downs, and it’s what makes him such a character you root for.”
But what are they going to call it? “U Can’t Watch This”? “Please Hammer Don’t Film It”? No, it’s predictably titled “Hammertime.” And so begins my quest to see the show canceled. A quest I call “Stop Hammertime.”
