Mark, Paul and Donnie Wahlberg
He's been nominated for two Academy Awards. He's had a No. 1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. His latest movie opened to $37 million earlier this month. So why would Mark Wahlberg want to star in a reality show?
"I thought kind of the same thing," executive producer Rasha Drachkovitch tells TVGuide.com. "It definitely helps that the subject matter is his family and the family business."
That family business, the Hingham, Mass., restaurant Wahlburgers, is the focus of the new A&E reality show of the same name. Premiering Wednesday at 10:30/9:30c, the docu-series follows Wahlberg, along with his two brothers, singer and Blue Bloods star Donnie and chef Paul Wahlberg, in their adventures running a restaurant together.

If you haven't heard the news yet, Seth MacFarlane is hosting the Oscars.
It's a bold, surprising selection, especially since the Family Guy, American Dad and Cleveland Show creator has little to do with films, has no hosting experience and is literally not a famous face. But after you get through the initial shock, MacFarlane is almost an inspired choice by the Academy.
Don't believe us? Here are six reasons why MacFarlane is a good choice to emcee Hollywood's biggest night.
Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane will host the 2013 Oscars, the Academy announced Monday. It will be his first time as host.
MacFarlane, who recently hosted Saturday Night Live and presented an award at last month's Emmys, called the opportunity "an overwhelming privilege."
Saturday Night Live returned for its season premiere in full election mode. The exits of high-profile cast members Kristen Wiig, Andy Samberg and Abby Elliott weren't immediately felt thanks to strong impressions from the likes of Jay Pharoah as President Barack Obama and Bill Hader as Republican National Convention speaker, and chair enthusiast, Clint Eastwood.

FX is known mostly for its original series, from Sons of Anarchy and Justified to Louie and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. But as much as 80 percent of the cable network's schedule is still devoted to theatrical movies — which is why FX execs have been on a blockbuster buying spree again this summer.
FX has landed the lion's share of this summer's box office No. 1 films, ultimately plopping at least $200 million for movies such as The Avengers, Men in Black 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man. Most recently, FX picked up the rights to last weekend's No. 1 film, The Bourne Legacy.
