Showtime for the Giants: "The Franchise" Reality Show Premieres Tonight
Showtime's MLB Reality Show "The Franchise" featuring the San Francisco Giants premieres tonight
A few months ago it leaked out that MLB and Showtime were cooking up a reality show following an MLB team over the course of the season, aka a thinly-veiled clone of HBO's "Hard Knocks."
Then it leaked out that the World Series Champion San Francisco Giants were the team in contention to be featured. Yep, the long-haired, pot smoking, rally-thong wearing, beard growing, Marina skirt-chasing, Phillie thumping (had to throw that in there) San Francisco Giants.
Then in a shocking move, the show actually got the greenlight and the Giants agreed to do it. And it looks awesome.
The "preview" episode of the series premieres tonight at 9:30pm ET/PT on Showtime. The series will then take a break for a few months and resume later in the season when the pennant race heats up.
So tonight's episode should set the table, establish the story lines, and of course feature a healthy portion of Brian Wilson.
