Boxing legend and Las Vegas resident Mike Tyson wraps the finale of his TV series “Being: Mike Tyson” on Fox Sports tonight.
Cameras show his nationwide one-man show tour ending but his journey starting as an entertainer performing standup with Jeff Ross at a Sunset Strip club in Hollywood.
Back in his childhood neighborhood of Brownsville in Brooklyn, he reflects on his life, how far he has come and how it has shaped him for the future.
It’s a very rare and intimate glimpse into the new world of “Iron Mike.”
CRISS ANGEL’S ‘BELIEVE’
Meantime, Spike TV has doubled Criss Angel’s new show “Believe” and tonight broadcasts two back-to-back, spine-tingling episodes.
In the first hour, our Luxor headliner risks life and limb to prove catching a speeding bullet can indeed be done without the use of any trickery.
Criss points out that in history, 12 magicians have died trying to perform the stunt —and things do go wrong with it on the show.
Taboo of The Black Eyed Peas and UFC legend Randy Couture make guest appearances.
Critic Brittany Frederick commented: “How do you even train for such a stunt? Can it be pulled off legally? The production shows all the time, negotiation, effort and energy it takes, along with Criss’s plain courage for a very compelling hour.”
Then in the second hour, Criss has a ticking countdown to escape being buried alive in a cement grave, which was staged outside our Mirage on the Strip.
The first time he attempted this, the crowds grew so large that our Metro Police officers shut it down so that they were better prepared, with additional officers for the actual filming.
Tune in tonight!
