The Wahlberg boys are wicked, wicked popular in Massachusetts.

After tickets for a premiere of the Wahlburgers reality TV show went on sale Wednesday at noon, it took less than an hour for them to completely sell out. The A&E reality show, which will hit the airwaves on Jan. 22 at 10:30 p.m., is about Wahlberg brothers Paul, Donnie and Mark operating the Wahlburgers family restaurant in Hingham, Mass.

The three brothers co-own the restaurant and Paul is the executive chef.

Only 100 tickets were sold to for the premiere and the proceeds will be donated to the Dorchester Youth Collaborative.

“It’s all about the Dorchester Youth Collaborative, and the money is going to benefit them, so I’m really happy for them,” Paul said. “It’s a program that Mark [Wahlberg] has been affiliated with for a long time. We’re very excited for it, and they were excited as well. It’s a great program, what they do over there is amazing.”

Attendees will have more opportunities to donate throughout the evening.

The mother of the three brothers, Alma Wahlberg, is expected to be in attendance.

Even though it’s going to be a fun evening, it will be business as usual for the chef at Wahlburgers. “I’ll be there cooking and running around,” Paul said.
