CMT's PROGRAMMING HIGHLIGHTS FOR 3/5-3/11
Programming Highlights | March 5-11, 2007
TRICK MY TRUCK (episode 21) - PREMIERE!
Terry Cuneo, from Dunkirk, Ind., believes in living each day to the fullest, whether he’s trucking or spending time with his fiancée. Diagnosed with an incurable lung disease as a child, Terry has been battling chronic health problems his whole life. Because Terry’s medication and treatments are so expensive, he can’t afford to be sidelined from any trucking jobs. No matter how bad the pain is, he gets up every morning and continues along his route. Whatever free time he has goes toward taking care of himself and not his truck. The Chrome Shop Mafia believes that Terry deserves a break. Check out their latest efforts as they turn Terry’s pink Freightliner into a classic Pullman rail car. Premieres Friday, March 9 at 8:30 p.m., ET/PT
COUNTRY FRIED HOME VIDEOS (episode 6) - PREMIERE!
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. Comedian Bill Engvall hosts the second season of COUNTRY FRIED HOME VIDEOS, the series that shows what everyday Americans do for fun and 15 seconds of fame. Each half-hour episode has one video awarded with Engvall’s infamous “Here’s Your Sign” cash prize at the end of each show. Premieres Friday, March 9 at 9:00 p.m., ET/PT
KARAOKE DOKEY (episode 1) - PREMIERE!
