Disgraced baseball great Pete Rose will suffer further indignity on Jan. 14, as he joins the ranks of Honey Boo Boo and "Sister Wives"
Pete Rose will take to the the same playing field as Honey Boo Boo next month.
The former baseball great's reality series, "Pete Rose: Hits & Mrs." has been given a six-episode order from TLC, and will premiere Monday, Jan. 14 at 10 p.m., the network said Tuesday.

The series will follow the 71-year-old Rose — who's been permanently barred from baseball due to gambling — and his new fiancee, former "Playboy" model Kiana Kim and their assemblage of kids from previous marriages. As the couple moves closer to marriage, they face various struggles: Will Rose's kids learn to accept the age difference between their dad and stepmom-to-be? Can Rose, who lives and works in Las Vegas, manage a long-distance relationship with Kiana, who lives in Los Angeles?
But perhaps the biggest question revolving around the series: How much indignity must Rose endure before he's welcomed back into the public's good graces?
"Pete Rose: Hits & Mrs." is produced for TLC by Creature Films, which seems appropriate, with Mark Ford and Kevin Lopez executive-producing.
