MTV debuts Two-A-Days’ second season and Bam’s Unholy Union tonight

After the return of Road Rules tonight, MTV brings back one series for a second season and debuts another series.

Two-A-Days, the most awkwardly titled reality show on MTV, kicks off its second season at 10 p.m. ET. The show continues to follow senior football players at Hoover High School in Alabama, although it features a largely new cast. That may affect how viewers respond to the series; The Chicago Tribune’s Maureen Ryan says “the new crew of senior players … doesn’t seem to be quite as hard-charging as the team from Season 1.”

A half-hour earlier, at 9:30, a brand-new series, Bam’s Unholy Union, will debut. It follows Jackass star Bam Margera as he pepares to get married. MTV promises that he won’t do so “without the ‘help’ of his uncouth uncles and prankster pals,” and “Dad Phil and Mom April will be bringing up the rear, most likely cleaning up some sticky situations along the way.”

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.
