    The latest iteration of the genre of celebrity re-introduction--and one of its more amusing--is CBS' new show Same Name.

    It all comes out pretty well in the wash. Same Name gets fairly close to sealing the deal on the idea that celebs can learn something from just plain folks.

    The "real" Hasselhoff tries to fit in with his namesake's family without alluding to his TV shows or his big-in-Germany-ness every two minutes. (Spoiler: He fails.) Even cynically minded wisenheimers such as myself can recognize the show's heart when both Hasselhoffs learn lessons about what's really important in life (and the winner is..."family").
