HULK HOGAN’S CELEBRITY CHAMPIONSHIP WRESTLING - SERIES PREMIERE!
Ten brave celebrities (Danny Bonaduce, Todd Bridges, ButterBean, Trishelle Cannatella, Dustin Diamond, Erin Murphy, Dennis Rodman, Frank Stallone, Tiffany, and Nikki Ziering) come together to learn, train and compete in competitive wrestling while being eliminated one by one each week based on judges' selections and head-to-head matches with one another. In the premiere, our 10 celebrities meet for the first time in the CCW training facility and are divided in two teams, coached by Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake and “Nasty Boy” Brian Knobs. Hulk explains the rules of the competition, and gives them their first three wrestling skills to learn. With only a few days of training, they compete in their first main event – and one of the celebs is sent home! Premieres Saturday, October 18 at 8:00 p.m., ET/PT
MY BIG REDNECK WEDDING (episode 3) - PREMIERE!
Episode three of MY BIG REDNECK WEDDING features Emily, a former punk rocker who turned redneck for the guy of her dreams, Eric, whose favorite pastime is collecting raccoon privates. Emily was a wild child who had dreams of becoming a mechanic until the day she saw Eric standing in front of her soaking wet in his underwear. He had fallen down a muddy cliff and the orders were that he had to strip down and be hosed off before entering the house. They now live together in Worden, Mont., on a miniature pony ranch. As a bride to be, Emily proves to be a full blown redneck, even buying camouflage lingerie at hardware store for her bridesmaids. Premieres Saturday, October 18 at 9:00 p.m., ET/PT
DALLAS COWBOYS CHEERLEADERS: MAKING THE TEAM 3 (episode 3) - PREMIERE!
In the half-hour third episode of DALLAS COWBOYS CHEERLEADERS: MAKING THE TEAM, Training Camp begins! The newly elected training camp candidates are excited, even star struck, as they meet the veterans for the first time at Valley Ranch. At the first team meeting, anxiety ripples through the ranks when DCC director Kelli Finglass announces that a couple of the more seasoned veterans have failed the written test. Veterans come up short again during the body fat evaluation—some of them have put on weight, while the rookies test lean and mean. The vets’ experience finally shines through at the first dance rehearsals, while the newbie rookies struggle to learn the choreography. But veterans are warned they too are eligible to be cut from the squad this year! Premieres Saturday, October 18 at 9:30 p.m., ET/PT
