Owens, Ochocinco Team Up For Versus Talk Show

By Marcus Vanderberg 

We don’t know yet for sure if they will get along on the field, but Cincinnati Bengals wide receivers Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco are working well together away from the sport.

The two VH1 reality stars are teaming up for The T.Ocho Show, a half-hour weekly talk show on Versus.

Owens and Ochocinco will focus mostly on football but expect the unexpected when dealing with the diva wideouts.


“There will be topics where Chad and I will get in trouble,” Owens told USA Today. “We’ll talk about issues that aren’t talked about in the mainstream media. It’s an opportunity for two of loudest mouths who’ve been in the league.”

I’m sure NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has his season pass already setup on his DVR.

Fans can get a sneak peek starting tonight as the show will debut as a segment on The Daily Line at 11 p.m. on Versus and air for the next five weeks before officially premiering on Oct. 12 at 10:30 p.m. (EST).

“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 Andy Meyer, vice president of original programming for Versus, in a statement. “The T.Ocho Show will be can’t-miss weekly appointment viewing for both sports fans and pop culture junkies to find out what this always unpredictable and rarely censored pair will say.”
