Why, When And How To Watch This Season Of ‘Hard Knocks’ With The Houston Texans
Sports and reality TV don't often mix, unless you're Pat Mayo. But one of the best exceptions to this rule is "Hard Knocks," the football training camp show created by HBO and NFL Films. It's the perfect way to get hyped for football season, and it gives viewers a better understanding of what goes into making an NFL team -- or what it takes to stay on the roster.
For example: Remember that one time Carson Palmer had to tell his center to wipe his butt better?
"Hard Knocks" returns next week, Aug. 11, for another five-episode run. Information on watching the first episode, via HBO, below:
HBO Sports, NFL Films and the Houston Texans team up for an all-access look at what it takes to make it in the National Football League when the 12-time Sports Emmy®-winning series HARD KNOCKS: TRAINING CAMP WITH THE HOUSTON TEXANS kicks off its five-episode tenth season TUESDAY, AUG. 11 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT) on HBO.
Other hour-long episodes of the first sports-based reality series – and one of the fastest-turnaround programs on TV – debut subsequent Tuesdays at the same time, culminating in the Sept. 8 season finale. Each episode replays Wednesday at 11:00 p.m.

Are you more of a "watch it not as it airs live" kind of person? Or maybe you're a "I don't actually have HBO, but my parents do, so I use their HBO GO password" kind of person? Fear not: Last year, HBO and the NFL came to an agreement to show the episodes on HBO GO the next day. So every Wednesday morning, last night's episode will be available.
Good watching, and good luck.
