“Hello, my name is Mike Tyson” is the thing you hear, and what do you expect to see? a chubby white man with good guy looks? Probably not. Well, that´s the interesting thing about Same Name, the newest unscripted series from CBS in which celebrities exchange their lives with regular Joes that have the same name. We already saw David Hasselhoff swap life with David Hasselhoff and Kathy Griffin becoming Kathy Griffin. Now it´s time for Mike Tyson.
“Mike Tyson”, the former undisputed heavyweight boxing champion of the world “Iron” Mike Tyson swaps boxing gloves for scrubs when he trades places with Mike Tyson from Zeeland, Mich., and works as a nurse assisting low-income patients. Meanwhile, Michigan Mike gets an opportunity to try on “Iron” Mike’s boxing gloves when thrown into the ring against a heavyweight champion for charity. Ultimately, boxer Mike Tyson brings a whole community to tears with one heartfelt gesture, on Same Name, Sunday, Aug. 7 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
