All the way back in January, we got word that our favorite hamburger restaurant Wahlburgers, brilliantly named after its founding family, was in the process of filming its own reality show. Only the wicked best news we’ve evah heard in ah fuckin’ lives! (Boston accent?) I don’t know why it took so long, we’ve been here waiting and waiting and waiting, but the show is finally going to come to our TVs! (In January!) (A YEAR LATER.) (Why even tell us good news about something if you’re going to wait a year to give it to us?!) From The Wrap:
The Brothers Walbergh are franchising: Mark and Donnie Wahlberg are expanding the family business with the A&E reality show “Wahlburgers,” about their Boston restaurant.
The show is no joke: Donnie Wahlberg announced on “The Arsenio Hall Show” Tuesday that it will debut in the plum time slot after “Duck Dynasty,” TV’s biggest reality show, on Jan. 22 at 10:30/9:30c.
They’ll be joined by the Wahlberg they say is their “most talented sibling,” their older brother Paul. The restaurant is based in their old neighborhood, and the supporting cast includes Johnny “Drama” Alves, who was the inspiration for Johnny Drama on Mark Wahlberg’s HBO series “Entourage,” as well as their mother, Alma.
UH, OBVIOUSLY THE SHOW IS NO JOKE. Please don’t condescend to the reality TV show about the Mark and Donnie Wahlberg hamburger restaurant Wahlburgers which will feature the inspiration for Entourage’s Johnny Drama as well as their mother, Alma. Uh, yeah duh it’s serious. I’ll see you on January 22nd, after whatever Duck Dynasty continues to be! I don’t know if I can sleep for that long but I can definitely try, goodnight! (Thanks for the tip, Matthew!)
