The Hoff, Bob Saget, Dee Snider, Tony Danza all getting reality TV shows

David Hasselhoff, Bob Saget, Dee Snider and Tony Danza have all been tapped for new celebrity TV reality series on the A&E cable network. Please, someone tell me if this is good or bad news.

Here's the rundown, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Hasselhoff THE HOFF: This show, still untitled, would feature Hasselhoff trying to help his two daughters catch a break in the recording industry. It's set for a fall debut.

Bob_saget BOB SAGET: This show, Strange Days with Bob Saget, will follow the Full House star as he participates in "unusual cultures, practices and occupations." A six-show season is set for later this year.

Tony-danza TONY DANZA: The Who's The Boss frontman returns to TV for Teach: Tony Danza, where the actor teaches English at a Philadelphia high school.

Dee snider DEE SNIDER: The lead singer of Twisted Sister and his family gets the Hulk Hogan treatment (bad karma!) in Growing Up Twisted.

I'm going to go out on a limb and make some predictions: Only Hasselhoff's and Snider's show will make it two a second season. Not that I'm not rooting for Saget and Danza. But America remains strangely fascinated on The Hoff, and viewers can't seem to get enough "rock star/celebrity and his dysfunctional family" shows, no matter how bad they are and what collateral damage is caused. (Paging Brooke Hogan, please go away.)
