Shaq Vs, Anyone watching this Shaq self promotion show?

I've seen one whole show and the very end of another and he didn't win in either case. The partial was in football against Ben Rothlesberger and it was close but he did seem to have some pretty good guys on his team. The whole show I saw was in volleyball against Misty May and Carrie Walsh, the best women's beach volley team ever, but they hadn't played together in a year and Misty May is just back from a torn achellis tendon which is a very serious injury and Carrie just had a baby a couple of months ago. Shaq also has the advantage in that he is 7 ft 1 in tall and the net is just 7 ft 3 in and he a had a very good pro from the men's circuit on his team. Anyway he lost the best of two games in straight games pretty badly. So has he won any of these challenges?

I have not seen it but it kind of reminds me of the show Throwdown with Bobby Flay. It is a cooking competition where he goes all over the country and competes against people who have specialty dishes who are considered the best at that dish. He goes tries to cook their dish and compete against them in their specialty but in an interview he says he does not really want to win, because it is that person's specialty and he thinks it hurts their ego when he beats them at their special dishes. He almost never wins but he has on occasion and you can tell he feels kind of bad when he wins. Maybe it is the same way for Shaq.

I think the one with Ben Rothlesberger was the first one. I watched the majority of that show, and I really enjoyed the ribbing that they gave each other more than I enjoyed watching Shaq try to win the football game, or the parts that they did with the news conference and the pep rally type scenes. That was the only one that I watched, and up until I seen this discussion here on your profile, I had completely forgotten about the show. So is it still going, or did they cancel it. Then again, it was during the summer I think. So maybe it was just a summer series, that ended as the new series for the regular fall programming took off. I'm surprised that he lost both of those. I wonder if he lost them all. If so, there isn't much of a chance of getting people to watch if he is always going to lose. But then again, maybe there are some real Shaq fans just hanging on by the thread hoping he'll win one. : )
