High School Reunion 3 debuts tonight; principal says it’s “a black eye for us.”
The WB’s third High School Reunion season debuts tonight, featuring 1994 graduates of a Catholic High School. Despite being officially titled High School Reunion: Fort Lauderdale, the 14 classmates will stay far away from their high school stomping grounds, coming together 10 years after graduation in Hawaii. They’ll arrive come pre-labeled fun things such as “The Loud Mouth,” “The Predator,” “The Fat Girl,” and “The Obsessed Ex.” The school’s current principal tells the Sun-Sentinel that the show “is going to be a black eye for us,” said school Principal Paul Ott in a phone interview. “But we’ll recover. Cardinal Gibbons has graduated about 11,000 outstanding individuals. … The people on this show are a small group, who are not typical of our students past or present.” He’s yet to see the show, though, and backs off of calling the participants sluts, idiots, and dicks: “These aren’t bad kids. I taught some of them.”

Surprisingly, man not eaten alive on Eaten Alive

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
