Michael Vick lands own TV show on BET

Vick’s Reality Show

After being convicted of dog fighting and serving over a year in jail, Michael Vick has been given his own TV show.  The reality show created by BET will document Vicks return to football and his past leading up to the dog fighting.

In the words of a PETA spokesman,  “People who abuse animals don’t deserve to be rewarded”. Vick has made horrible decisions in his career and defiantly should not be given any more air time. Who would want to watch a show about a convicted animal killer? why would BET even sponsor something like this? Vick is getting paid a large amount of money to do this show,and all because he was involved in dog fighting. Vick shouldnt be given his own show nor should he have ever been allowed to return to football. Children should not be looking up to someone like him as a role model.  Not only does Vick have poor morals/etichs because of his past decision, the people behind his comback in football and tv should think about the bad decision he made.

    I totally agree with you on this topic. Unfortunately, because of the involvement with the dog fights he is now more famous than ever. I think it is very unethical of BET to actually contract such a person just for ratings. That is what our television has come to. They will do anything just to make money. And it works, we tune in to reality shows to have this feeling of disapproval. This feeling makes us feel like we are above the people on T.V and who doesn’t want to feel better than a famous person?

    I completely agree that what Vick did was a very horrible crime but you have to take into account that he did serve his time and pay for what he did. The crime he committed did cause him to be very famous and he shouldn’t be rewarded for committing the crime. It is possible that Vick wants to do the show to show he is sorry for what he has done and wants to change his bad reputation he has now. I am not necessarily agreeing with the decision BET made to give him a show. I do think we need to wait and see what the show is like, I am curious to see what Vick has to say for himself, so I will probably watch the show at least once.
