Falcons cheerleaders get their own reality show

If you can’t root for the Atlanta Falcons right now, how about their cheerleaders?

The 2011 squad has recently been selected and they will make their first public appearance today at the W Atlanta in Buckhead, according to D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The team is celebrating the launch of its new reality television show: “New South: Making the Team with the Atlanta Falcons.”

No, it’s not HBO’s “Hard Knocks,” but the premium cable channel won’t have a “Hard Knocks” this summer if the lockout doesn’t end.

Per the report, the five-part series on the Falcons cheerleaders will be shown on Xfinity On Demand via Comcast.
