Hollywood wants to capture Wisconsin's deep abiding affection for the Green Bay Packers and they are going to make a reality show about cheeseheads.
Move over Jersey Shore, the "cheeseheads" are taking over reality television via TBS's new reality show called...well, Cheeseheads, according to SBNation.com. Hollywood has just figured out what we alreday knew -- that Snookie and Pauly D have nothing on us. The producers hope to capture "the hilarious subculture," which of course includes the rituals of brew, brats, and the brouhaha around extreme fandom. The producer is Jason Carbone, who who also did The Bachelor and Run's House. A pilot likely hasn't been put together. So, if you could produce this show, where would you find shining examples of Packers Nation?

Talk to any Packers' fan, and they'll quickly enlighten you to how special it is to be under the lights of Lambeau Field. Next month, the student body at Maple Dale School could get a taste of what it's like to step into the most-storied stadium in professional football — and be bussed in by the Packers.

After tossing aside Minnesota, the Green Bay Packers head to San Francisco to take on the 49ers next week.
A rematch of the Week 1 of the NFL season is set for the second round of the NFC Playoffs, as the Green Bay Packers visit the San Francisco 49ers. The game kicks off at 7 p.m. CST Saturday and will be broadcast locally on FOX 6. San Francisco, the No. 2 seed, beat up the Packers in Green Bay to open the season with a 30-22 win. But Colin Kaepernick is now San Francisco’s starting quarterback, having replaced Alex Smith midway through the season. And David Akers, who kicked an NFL record-tying 63-yard field goal in the September game, is at risk of losing his job after slumping. Billy Cundiff practiced with the team last week. The Packers defeated the Minnesota Vikings 24-10 in the first round of the playoffs, taking a 24-3 lead against …

Green Bay hosts Minnesota at Lambeau Field in the third game of the season between the NFC North rivals.
After failing to stop Adrian Peterson twice, the Green Bay Packers will be invited to do so again on Saturday in the first round of the NFL Playoffs. The Packers host the Minnesota Vikings at 7 p.m. Saturday, and the game will be broadcast locally on Today’s TMJ 4. Peterson thrashed Green Bay for 199 yards on Sunday, including a final, 26-yard run to make easy the game-winning, 29-yard field goal in the 37-34 triumph that put Minnesota into the playoffs. The performance was just four weeks after he rushed for 210 yards in Green Bay in a 23-14 Packers win. The Packers try to counter with offense and quarterback Aaron Rodgers. His final three games of the regular season were impeccable — 78 of 114 passing (68.4 percent), 998 yards, 10 …

With a win over the hated purple rivals, the Packers can earn a bye in the first round of the NFL playoffs, and guarantee a home game.
The Green Bay Packers can clinch the No. 2 seed in the NFC playoffs by defeating the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday afternoon. The game has been moved to 3:25 p.m. from the original noon start, and will be broadcast locally on FOX 6. A team that has won nine of its last 10 games is expected to welcome back wide receiver Jordy Nelson from a hamstring injury, but now fellow receiver Randall Cobb did not practice Wednesday or Thursday after injuring his ankle last week. Charles Woodson also has been ruled out, though he is expected back for the playoffs. Despite season-long injury issues, however, the Packers have succeeded thanks to the emergence of players such as James Jones, Mike Neal and Casey Hayward. And the running game has seen a boost…
