New Kids on the Block on a cruise ship is now a reality show


This is a new reality show coming to TV Guide Channel. The boy band New Kids on the Block partying on a cruise ship.

Rock This Boat: NKOTB is an eight-episode series where the 1980s pop band hang out at sea with some of their fans (for some, being trapped on a boat with the New Kids on the Block is a vacation dream).

TV Guide Channel announced the show as part of its upfront presentation Tuesday, along with a new family based reality show starring Alan Thicke. Billed as “a real-life modern family,” Unusually Thicke has a 14-episode order. The cable network also firmed up its plan for The Sorrentinos, which EW broke earlier, starring Jersey Shore star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and his family.
