Stanford, Conn.-- After the announcement from VH1 last week for a new show about Hulk Hogan and his family, The WWE confirmed a new reality program revolving around the MacMahon family .

"This is a very exciting time for us." WWE chairman Vince MacMahon said at a press conference on April 3, 2005 before Wrestlemania. "We are more entertaining than the Osbournes and we are more powerful than Donald Trump, We will be the champions of reality TV."
The show will revolve around Vince the dad, Linda the mom, Shane the son, Stephanie the daughter, and Triple H the son-in-law. Every week the show promises to be a great and wacky view into professional wrestling and those who run it.
The first episode starts with Vince frustrated over the poor ratings on his Monday show, Raw. "How can ratings be droping?" MacMahon asks one of his staff. "Everyone wants to see Triple H every week, I mean thats what he told me."
Meanwhile , Shane, who is vice-president of the WWE, sits behind his desk for hours doing nothing.
And then the best part of the remaining 20 minutes of the show revolves around Stephanie and Triple H.
"So what superstar do you want to push for the World Championship, honey?" Asks Steph.
"Bastista should get it, but as long as I stll get all the main events and 99% of the air time on Raw." replys
Other events in the first season include vince starting a new Nascar type promotion, Linda trying to calm down the stock holders angerly wanting their $2.19 (as of April 1, 2005) investment back, more of Shane doing nothing, And more Steph and Triple H...which is about 20 minutes of each show.
The show is still pending a network, but 32 shows have already been filmed. If not picked up, the thirty minute show will air three times during the Smackdown show on America's number one network, UPN.
