Vegas Stripped on Travel Channel

Travel Channel is introducing some Las Vegas programming this week when they debut the new series Vegas Stripped.

Although they have strikingly similar names, this is a completely different show from Vegas Strip on truTV.

Vegas Stripped will document the goings on at South Point, which makes the show's title even more strange, since most people would consider South Point an off-Strip property (even though it's technically located on Las Vegas Boulevard).

Vegas Stripped looks similar to the trio of Vegas reality TV shows that aired back in 2004-05: American Casino (Green Valley Ranch), The Casino (Golden Nugget) and Caesars 24/7 (Caesars Palace).

Those shows were all entertaining, but lost steam after a few episodes. I expect the same fate for Vegas Stripped. The first two episodes will air Wednesday, February 8 at 10:00 PM and 10:30 PM ET/PT.
