Cincinnati Bengals wide receivers Terrell Owens and Chad OchoCinco will mash their personalities and names for a halfhour talkshow on Versus, “The T.Ocho Show,” premiering Oct. 12.
The weekly series aims to be as volatile as Owens and OchoCinco have been throughout their NFL careers. Viewers can get a hint of that it will be like when the duo appears on Versus’ “The Daily Line” each of the next five Tuesdays, beginning tonight.
“Not only are T.O. and OchoCinco two of the most recognizable, entertaining and quotable players in the NFL today — and maybe across the entire sports landscape — they’ve transcended from sports superstars to reality TV celebrities and social media gurus,” said Versus original programming veep Andy Meyer.
Topics will range from the football related to pop culture ponderings.
“This show will be an open forum for me and Chad to talk about things that don’t get talked about in the mainstream media,” Owens said. “It’s an opportunity for two of the biggest loudmouths that have been in the league the last decade to voice their opinions and poke our chests out a little.”
