Real & Chance: Legend Hunters premieres Sunday, September 19 at 9 PM ET/PT
Man has always been fascinated with Nature’s Animal Tales. Some are real: the man-eating Catfish of the Kali River, the Mega Shark, Hogzilla, Super Crocs, and the Giant Squid. Some may be only myth: Bigfoot, the chupacabra, the Loch Ness Monster and the Yeti. But two men believe in the stories and they intend to find them all. Their names: Real and Chance. That’s right, Real and Chance: Lovers, horse-breeders, recording artists, Stallionaires. Neither of them are scientists, nor investigators. And despite their claims to the contrary, they’re no outdoorsmen either. They’re scared of bugs, bats, frogs and almost anything that slithers or crawls. They can’t take a fish off a hook because slimy things scare them. But they are believers and by the end of the show, they may even make believers out of you.

Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It premieres in October
In this first-look docu-series, viewers will not only get a taste of Bret Michael’s life on the road, but also for the first time ever, get a look at his home life, a sprawling compound where his daughters, Raine and Jorja, and their mother, Kristi Gibson, reside. After the lights have dimmed on stage and the music stops for the night, Bret rolls off the tour bus right into the loving arms of his daughters Raine and Jorja, who affectionately refer to him as “Poppa Rocka.” But raising two little girls and being a rock icon don’t always go hand-in-hand. Now fans get to take a peek at what keeps Bret going. Is it the hoards of wild fans, the glory of super stardom, or is it the unconditional love from his family? Watch as Bret juggles life on the road, his career, raising two kids and managing his on again off again relationship with their beautiful mom, Kristi.

Football Wives premieres Sunday, October 24 at 10:30 PM ET/PT

Some players hit it big on the field and some are taken out in their prime by a big hit. Whether a player is in the zone and bringing in the big bucks on and off the field or struggling just to make it through a world of pain, it’s the amazing women behind them that are the driving force in their lives. Picking up the pieces, raising their families and reaping the benefits of the tough lives their men face every time they step into the game. These are the FOOTBALL WIVES…where Dallas meets Dynasty meets the Gridiron. But living the high life is not all glamor — it’s frequently fleeting. Football players are often injured so their partners are forced to not only play wife, but also be a mother or nurse to their men. The careers of these modern-day gladiators span only a few years on average and unlike basketball players, football stars travel less for games and are expected to be home with their families. But do they live up to those expectations?

  2. Dale Jones says:

    VH1…, I have been and still am a big fan. I am quite disappointed that you at VH1 who claim to be up on the “green” factor for the ecological system of the planet…, yet you continue to lay a video by Travie McCoy, called “Billionaire” that BLATANTLY SHOWS A GRAFFITI ARTIST THROWING AN EMPTY CAN OF SPRAY PAINT TO THE BEACHES WATERS EDGE!!!! What is that about? I’m quite surprised that it is still being played AND it actually made it to the Top Ten AGAIN last week. Also, you’re playing a video by the new Black Keys, that insinuates SEX AMONGST SMALL CHILDREN!!!!! WHY IS THAT??? My kids and grandkids AND I, will STOP watching VH1 unless these 21 videos are pulled from your show.
    If you don’t stop playing them, I will voice my opinion on every internet site I can put it on!!!
    Those videos should not be played anywhere and should be boycotted from national and local TV!
    Thank you,
    A VERY concerned fan and VH1 viewer!!!

  6. Comeon says:

    OH MY GOD come on VH1.. The Stallionaires are weak and old. Its time to get a NEW SHOW for hell sakes.. WHY keep using these two? Their 15 are OVER. There is a ton of others that have more personality in their little finger then both of these guys together. ENOUGH already.. Let’s get some white girls to get their own show.

  12. toogie says:

    mmmmmm vh1 love this network but where are the dating shows?? real & chance sounds promising, but I think Fantasia with her publicized problems and upcoming court maybe should take some time out for herself. I never saw this show much. I loved the rock of love shows but Bret should concentrate on his self right now. Not really sure who Lala and Carmelo are. The lyrics show looks promising as well as Dr. Drew. I never got into the brandy/ray j show. More dating shows with new people and personalities VH1 please!!!!

  14. Sandra says:

    I’ve been waiting since the last episode of celebrity rehab for the next one to come. I see its finally coming in Oct. I simply cannot wait!!!!!!!!! I love the line up. Im always soooo pleased at the outcome of the show!!!!! Dr. Drew does a surpurb job with EVERYONE!!!!!! Everyone of them always leave happy and satisfied. Except Carri Ann. I myself didn’t trust her from the start. She just didn’t seem to really want the help…… matter what anyone seem to do to help. But, other than her……..I’d say those were fantastic odds, wouldn’t you! Dr. Drew is the best! I wish I were able to watch it TONIGHT! I’ll be as patient as I can. Oh! My fav is Eric Roberts!!!! I LOVE HIM! Always have! I wanna see him push thru this with as much ease as possible.

  15. TheAmazingSoAndSo says:

  21. Teri says:

What about another hot old rocker like Tommy Lee or something like that for a dating show?? Real and Chance? That show sounds soooooo stupid!!! Come on VH!!!!

  22. Lii says:

    The whole reason most of us started watching the reality shows on this channel was because of the extreme, entertaining personalities you found and cast. How exactly does it make sense to stop showing things that brought you viewers in the first place, and switch to stuff that is almost guaranteed to be boring to your average VH1 viewer? We LIKE scandalous, ridiculous people and situations. It entertains us. What we DON’T like or find entertaining is shows about the personal lives of D-list celebrities. Think about it. Consider what your viewers are saying. The one show people ARE saying they will watch is the one about Bret Michaels. You want to know why? Because he is entertaining! His confessionals are entertaining, his life is entertaining, and he is not afraid to incorporate the ridiculous into his shows. Compare that to the response you’re getting for “celebrities” (and I use that term VERY loosely) like Lala, and some random sports player’s wife, and the extremely-boring-at-confessionals Real and Chance. We know you freaked out when all that drama surrounding what’s-his-face from MWaM hit. We understand. We even understand your decision to pull MWaM and ILM3 because of it, although we disagree. But letting that situation turn you completely away from the type of program that got you the followers you now have? That’s just bad business.

  23. Julie B. says:

    I tried to read everywhere on this site but I didn’t find information about when Bret Michaels: Life as I know It will start…?…I know he was sick but somebody told me that many episodes were already shot…Maybe someone could tell me when it will start for good…I already saw the first episode…Thank you…

    P.S. In montréal, we recieve all estern us tv channels..( 1 hour of New York state)..

  24. Julie B. says:

    Sorry, I made a mistake in my previous comment…Montréal is 1 hour FROM New York state…

  25. GW Stein says:

    This series is great, I love it. The production of the show is super. It is scripted, directed,and filmed very well. The “noodling” episode is pure entertainment. Honestly, you two were the last ones I ever expected to see in a river “noodling” let alone “chewing tabacco.” I’m a fan who can hardly wait for the next episode and I have no idea of what to expect next. Congrats!

    VH1 you have to do i love money 5!
    we all love i love money!

  27. fanfanfan says:

    VH1 listen to your viewers!
    we want i love money 5!

  28. Sandy says:

    I just turned into Brets new show and OMG that little kid of his is a very whiny brat. Where is a 5 year old getting names like “LOSER” in her vocabulary. Does not sound like such a great dad to me. All she does is run around and cry…BRAT is all I can say. Both those kids will probably be in rehab as teenagers. Very sad. Spoiled totally. The parents will pay for this later…guaranteed…
