Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston will return with a Bravo Christmas special

Being Bobby Brown will be back, but only for a half-hour holiday special. On Dec. 21, Bravo will air a half-hour episode titled “Christmas with the Browns,” which hopefully has nothing to do with Whitney pooping.

In a statement, Bravo’s president explained why they’re bringing back the show for a half-hour, besides, you know, ratings-whoring: “Bravo couldn’t let 2005 come to an end without indulging viewers with another helping of ‘Being Bobby Brown’. This holiday special will take a look at how this very public family spends their private holiday time together.”

Judging by the press release’s headline, which includes the phrase “Bobby Claus,” that has something to do with Bobby Brown dressing up as Santa, or at least scaring small children at the mall.

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.
