"Same Name"

8 p.m. July 24, CBS I can't believe I'm writing this, but I got a little teary eyed watching as David Hasselhoff, the real Hoff, did something unexpected for the Texas family of the man who shares his name. That's the idea of this new reality series, in which stars trade places for four days with the regular folks of the same name. It's hokey and likely will be repetitive with the "Oh golly, I didn't think the stars worked so hard" reactions, but I predict quite a few acts of kindness, and a lot of tears. CBS
