If you think about it, it's kind of surprising that it took this long for David Hasselhoff to get his own reality series. After all, his public persona is the perfect mix of bravado and bizarre, and he has no problem saying things like, "Sometimes, it can be a real hassle to be a Hoff" with a straight face. So maybe that's why The Hasselhoffs works, even though it smells more-than-slightly of staged desperation: "The Hoff" is just surreal enough to pull it off.

(Younger viewers might recognize Hasselhoff's daughter Hayley from the ABC Family series Huge, where she played the prettiest and most popular girl at a weight-loss camp for teens -- but, hopefully, they'll also see that her current size is perfectly healthy.)
