    The show is cornball, but I'm willing to grant him this small, soft lob toward career rehab.

    There's something bizarrely addictive about The Hasselhoffs.

    Comedy of egotism only works if it's actually funny. Or put another way: He's no William Shatner. [3 Nov 2010, p.74]

    Nothing particularly interesting or revelatory. For this to work--at least for viewers--The Hoff needs to move past self-parody, or at least take himself seriously. He tries here, but the exercise still seems flimsy and hollow.

    If only the actual action in The Hasselhoffs weren't so stagy, that tension between delusion and self-awareness might be interesting.

    There's nothing fresh or original, and certainly no reason to watch this show, unless you're a fan of this ilk of staged "reality" (see "The Kardashians").

    You wish them all well. But in the end, watching the Hasselhoffs isn't much more interesting than watching a mechanic rebuild the transmission on KITT.

    Just when psychiatrists have decided to strike narcissistic personality disorder from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (as reported last week in science journals), the Hasselhoffs make a clear case for reinstating it.

    A&E's The Hasselhoffs is not as morally objectionable as other shows have been (think: "Hot or Not," "Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire?"), but it is hands down the cheesiest, least realistic celeb-reality show ever. And mostly that's due to star David Hasselhoff's narration, which sounds like someone with no acting training trying to read dialogue.
