Cho, 2 Live's Luke headed to VH1

The last time VH1 showed a music video, Brooke Hogan was still in her mom's womb (OK, slight exaggeration). The MTV offspring has found its niche with vaguely music-related shows and lots of reality programming (the network says the 23-year-old company is in the top 10 basic cable nets in the key 18-49 demo for the first time in its existence), and it doesn't plan on changing its plan one bit.

VH1 announced a quartet of new shows, and they'll satiate reality-show junkies with a penchant for unusual characters. Leading off the lineup is comedian Margaret Cho, who will be followed by cameras for seven episodes of The Cho Show. Cho previously starred on All American Girl, which touched upon the generational differences between Cho and her parents, which will also be a topic of The Cho Show.

Luther "Luke" Campbell, formerly of the shock-rap group 2 Live Crew, will be the subject of Luke's Parental Advisory. The show, which has an eight-episode order, follows the former rapper as he juggles parenthood and his new job--running an adult entertainment empire. Fun for the whole family.

The other two shows feature familiar faces (for VH1 fans, at least) heading into new territory. New York Goes to Hollywood sees Tiffany "New York" Pollard (I Love New York, Flavor of Love) head to the left coast to pursue her dream of becoming an A-list actress. Also heading out on her own will be Brooke Hogan (Hogan Knows Best), who leaves the watch of her wrasslin' dad and heads to Miami in Brooke Hogan Knows Best. Both shows have received orders for 10 episodes.

The network will also prepare three music specials featuring James Brown, Snoop Dogg, and Elton John.

I like the comedian Margaret Cho, and enjoyed her show, All American Girl when it was on network television. As far as Luther "Luke" Campbell's show, I will have have to hold judgement for now.

Margaret Cho is funny. But the Luke show sounds like a horrible idea.

Whatever happened to music channels? Vh1 and mtv are nothing but reality show channels. I thought they were suppose to have at least some music.Looks like I will never watch those channels again. And Margaret Cho sucks.
