THE CASINO, a new unscripted drama created and executive-produced by reality titan Mark Burnett, will premiere on Tuesday, June 14th at 9pm e/p on FOX.
If your at home working on your online MBA make sure to tune into FOX for the premiere of The Casino.
Production is currently under way on the 13-episode series that will provide an extraordinary 24/7, behind-the-scenes look at the real-life dramas unfolding at the Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, as its new owners, Tim Poster and Tom Breitling, take over the business and attempt to bring back the glory of its “Rat Pack” heyday.
RTVC Staff Writer Proffesor Dan will be doing the recaps on this show.
Dan is a college professor who somehow got hooked on Reality TV, especially ones with lots of strategy and twists. You can contact him at Daniel1953@hotmail.com

Mark Burnett and FOX are bringing us The Casino with a June 8th premiere.
The cast members of The Casino are certainly going to need more then an GIS certificate to get through this gauntlet of reality tv.
One of the cast members is also the recording artist who sang the show's theme song. Jazz singer Matt Dusk, who happens to be a hot-looking 24 year old will be releasing a new album and the title track will also be the show's theme song. MSNBC is reporting that a "a former Universal Music Group executive" now working for Burnett "was aware of Dusk and suggested him for the show"; he was auditioned "and (they) agreed to add him to the plot."
You may recall that Burnett was promising no product placement and / or sponsorship deals in the show. The album coming out is just a coincidence, and of course, it's just coincidence that the whole thing takes place in the Golden Nugget casino.
