9PM THE SURREAL LIFE
A mammoth cast rounds out the sixth season of VH1�s popular series �The Surreal Life� including the man who�s band made Shrek rock, STEVE HARWELL of Smashmouth; the actor who made George Jefferson more famous than that other Jefferson, SHERMAN HEMSLEY; the original video vixen, TAWNY KITAEN; the wildest rock and roll axeman ever, C.C. DEVILLE from Poison; Playboy TV�s covergirl, ANDREA LOWELL; and the XX and XY of the Arquette family, ALEXIS ARQUETTE.

10PM HOGAN KNOWS BEST
Get ready to rumble because VH1 is taking you back to Hulk-mania as �Hogan Knows Best� returns for a second season. The Hulk might be immune to pain when he's in the ring, but there is one pain that even Hulk cannot escape- growing pains! As daughter Brooke, 17, continues to pursue her dream of pop stardom, and son Nick, 15, straddles the fence from boyhood to manhood, Hulk and his wife Linda continue to flex their parenting muscles as they get body-slammed in the art of raising teens. So come see if Hogan still knows best as he once again opens up the doors to his life. If you thought last season was amusing, wait until you see what we have coming up.
"Hogan Knows Best" is a production of VH1 in conjunction with Pink Sneakers. Kimberly Belcher Cowin serves as executive producer, along with John Ehrhard as producer and Scott Bennett as director and co-producer for Pink Sneakers. Warren Cohen serves as senior producer, along with Brad Abramson, Michael Hirschorn, and Shelly Tatro as executive producers for VH1.
