‘Same Name’ On CBS Shows Heart

There are still SOME inspiring shows on television, and CBS’ Same Name is one of them.

The premise of the show is that celebrities like Mike Tyson, David Hasselhoff and Kathy Griffin change places with “unfamous” people who happen to share the same name.

It’s a little awkward to watch Tyson interact with two kids in the Midwest, but give Iron Mike credit, he HAS become a good father after a disappointing end to his boxing career.


His mom and wife appear to be very nice people as they graciously host his Same Name namesake.

Speaking of gracious, New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush is just that on another epsiode in donating football equipment to a struggling high school football program.

The “other” Reggie Bush’s wife is as beautiful and genuine a person as one would ever hope to meet, even asking the football star to be her sons’ mentors.

The boys were moved by the back’s gestures, even telling him they “love” him at the end of the program.

Nice moment.

Good show.
