Celebrity Rehab 2 trailer shows Jeff Conaway fighting with Gary Busey, calling 911

The most unexpectedly great and best new show of the year, VH1’s Celebrity Rehab, returns two weeks from tonight, on Oct. 23 at 10 p.m. ET. VH1 has released the five-minute supertrailer, which is basically the “this season on” segment.

The new cast/group of addicts is comprised of Steven Adler, Gary Busey, Jeff Conaway, Rodney King, Tawny Kitaen, Nikki McKibbon, Amber Smith, and Sean Stewart, and together they seem to be an incredible source of real-life drama, fighting with the staff and with each other. Jeff Conaway is still out of his mind, looking like he’ll again be receiving lots of air time; the trailer shows him clashing with Gary Busey and the staff, and even calling 911.

Here’s the preview of Celebrity Rehab 2:

The Sing-Off loses its star

Ben Folds

NBC's super-fun December a capella singing competition The Sing-Off is returning, but without its star judge, Ben Folds, and only as a two-hour special. Those are really depressing changes for a series that proved itself to be a super-fun show when it returned last December.
