CMT's PROGRAMMING HIGHLIGHTS FOR 3/31-4/6
Programming Highlights March 31—April 6, 2008
THE ULTIMATE COYOTE UGLY SEARCH 3 (episode 5) - PREMIERE!
Liliana Lovell, the tough-talking founder of the legendary New York City bar Coyote Ugly, is on the hunt again for the “Ultimate Coyote” in THE ULTIMATE COYOTE UGLY SEARCH 3. The third installment of the popular series features ten talented ladies who are competing for the sixth and final spot in the Coyote Ugly traveling troupe, a group that tours the country singing and dancing on bar tops and impressing crowds – as well as a $50,000 prize. This week, the remaining six women return from a three week holiday break refreshed, slimmed down and with a renewed desire to win. Three of them get a makeover after winning the 'Perfect Pour' challenge, while the other three sulk. A surprising “number one” badge is handed out at elimination and another contestant’s dream of becoming a travelling coyote ends. Premieres Friday, April 4 at 8:00 p.m., ET/PT
