Britney & Kevin: Chaotic debuts tonight.
The long-awaited train wreck that is Britney and Kevin: Chaotic debuts tonight on UPN, as the network airs two back-to-back half-hour episodes starting at 9 p.m. ET. Coincidentally, “Chaotic” just happens to be the title of Britney’s new single. The series breaks reality ground by primarily featuring home video footage that wasn’t originally intended for broadcast; that will be augmented by interviews with Britney and Kevin. UPN says “The footage begins shortly after Britney and Kevin first met in Los Angeles and headed off to Europe together on tour, leading up to and including their wedding day.” For some context, The New York Daily News recaps Britney and Kevin’s experiences together over the past year, including the moment when Britney asked Kevin to marry her; he said no, and then “[a] few minutes later, he asks Britney to be his wife. She says yes.”

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.
