Mayweather vs Ortiz 24/7: Must-See TV in Series Premiere, Replay Tonight at 11:30

New, 11 comments

Tomorrow, we'll have a full recap from Anthony Wilson of the debut episode of Mayweather vs Ortiz 24/7, and usually I won't do anything after the show like this, but it's worth noting: For fans of 24/7, fans of the fighters, and fans of wild reality TV, tonight's episode is a must-see.

That said, there will be a replay on HBO starting at 11:30 p.m. EDT, and if you miss it again, check your listings. It'll also be on HBO on Demand soon enough, I figure.

The final three minutes or so of tonight's episode were the most shocking, uncomfortable, terrible, and captivating minutes in this show's history. Everything you thought you'd seen from the Mayweather family saga -- with Floyd Jr, Floyd Sr, and Roger -- was blown away by an alarming meltdown tonight between father and son. If you're too impatient to wait, our live discussion had a lot of quotes from that finish, and I don't mind saying that I was, perhaps sadly, blown away by what transpired between Floyd and his dad.

For those who hate trainwreck TV, or don't like 24/7, you can skip it. But this was really wild, and was one of those escalating things that just got out of hand before you really caught on how serious and nasty it was getting.
