    In the long run, our interest in the show will directly correspond to our interest in whatever celebrity is featured from week to week.

    It should be evident that Same Name is as warm and mindless as an idyllic Sunday in idlest July.

    In short, Same Name is too respectful to both halves of its equation to be fully engaging by reality-TV standards.

    Some celebrities will surely offer better material to edit than Hasselhoff, famous and not. Future episodes promise encounters with Reggie Bush, Kathy Griffin, and Mike Tyson. Tyson in particular may bring just enough crazy to the table to tip the genre scales back to train wreck.

    Same Name prefers the usual bunk of the genre, smoothing over significant matters of a class chasm that is an everyday reality for all Americans with dreamy ideas of how we're all not really so different from one another.

    Same Name is a show made for people who live and breathe E! and Cynics need not tune in.
