The New Kids On The Block are back! TVGN has ordered a cruise reality television series featuring the popular 1980s-1990s boy band. 

"Rock This Boat: New Kids on the Block" will be an eight-episode series featuring New Kids On The Block fans (a.k.a. Blockheads) on a week-long cruise.  

Made up of brothers Jordan and Jonathan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Danny Wood, and the recently engaged Donnie Wahlberg, New Kids On The Block assembled in 1984. NKOTB broke up in the mid-1990s, but reunited in 2008 to record a new album and go on tour. (The band has since sponsored multiple concert cruises, so popular that they have a wait list of thousands.)

Currently, the band is preparing for an European tour, which kicks off on May 6 in Stockholm. They also have a "New Kids on the Block: After Dark" special scheduled for July at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, as well as a 2014 cruise from New York City to Bermuda. (Scheduled for June.)

Are you excited about the upcoming NKOTB reality show? Which of the following hits you hope they perform in their new gig?
