NASHVILLE – January 16, 2007 – Comedian Bill Engvall is back with an all new season of COUNTRY FRIED HOME VIDEOS, the series that shows what everyday Americans do for fun and 15 seconds of fame, beginning Friday, February 2 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.
CMT presents another heaping helping of hilarity with new episodes of viewer-generated video moments that run the gamut of insane stunts involving dirt bikes to inventive uses for RVs in each 30-minute episode, with one video awarded with Engvall’s infamous “Here’s Your Sign” cash prize at the end of each episode.
What makes a home video “country fried”? It could be a belly flopping contest in a mud puddle; shot gun bowling in the backyard; or even the age old favorite, bobbing for trout.
