    Well (and speaking as a die-hard Reds fan who loved him as a kid, but was fed up with him by the time I came of age), I would start by making him do what Bart Giamati couldn't -- Admit he bet on Reds games while still managing his own team.

    Other than that, What would we want to see him do (if anybody cares this far out, with years gone by)??

    Pete Rose is the male version of Anna Nicole Smith. It makes me sad to just think about watching a show about his life, never mind actually doing it.

    I watched the 5 minute 30 for 30 or whatever it was and found it depressing as hell. If I want to watch a reality show I like to be able to enjoy what they are doing or enjoy their personality.

    After watching that I did not want to do either.

    That one was still going up as it left the stadium.

    I would turn this into a "My Name is Earl" type show and have him apologize to people whose lives he made difficult...

    First season

    Ray Fosse
    Dave Pallone
    Anybody with the last name Giamatti
    Jim Gray
    Fay Vincent

    I'm sure the list would be endless...

    I would cry, because it meant my career bottomed out to the point that I was producing a piece o' crap reality show with pathetic Pete Rose.

    I'd just like to set up a camera at his signing table at Caesar's in Vegas and film all the people walking by all day without giving him a second look.
