Charm School debuts, I Love New York reunion airs on VH1 tonight

Two Flavor of Love spin-offs air episodes on VH1 tonight. First, at 9 p.m. ET, the cast of I Love New York reunites, followed by the debut of Charm School at 10.

On the I Love New York reunion, New York and Tango will see each other for the first time since the finale, when Tango proposed. VH1 says that, we’ll find out if “they still on their way to the [altar],” and says “[a]ll the guys are back (except the ones in jail, recovery, or therapy).” That should leave, what, three?

Charm School kicks off with an episode titled “No Mo’Nicknames,” a play on host Mo’Nique’s name and the fact that Flavor Flav nicknamed the 13 women who will be made over on this new spin-off, the second of the series. The women will compete for $50,000, and each episode they “will focus on one commandment during a comprehensive lesson followed by a demanding test. … After each test, the girl who shows the least improvement will be expelled,” according to VH1.

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.
