Programming Highlights May 19-25, 2008
CAN YOU DUET (episode 7) - PREMIERE!
Thousands of country star hopefuls auditioned, but only two performers will make the final cut to become country’s next great duo when CMT premieres CAN YOU DUET, a new 11-episode music competition series from “American Idol” producers FremantleMedia North America. Host Rossi Morreale will lead a panel of celebrity and expert judge/mentors, including country superstar Naomi Judd, acclaimed vocal coach Brett Manning and award-winning songwriter Aimee Mayo, in the weekly series that will seek to find country music’s next great duo – with the winner walking away with a recording contract with Sony BMG Nashville. This week, the final seven duos perform on stage at The Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville with a full band and standing-room only audience. The judges will eliminate one duo at the end of the show. Premieres Friday, May 23 at 8:00 p.m., ET/PT
MOBILE HOME DISASTER (episode 2) - PREMIERE!
Hosted by comedian John Caparulo, MOBILE HOME DISASTER finds deserving families that are living in less than desirable mobile homes and gives them the home makeover that they so desperately need. With help from the accomplished Home Disaster Team including Lori-Lynn Lively, Joe DeRobbio and Kyle Carlson, they use their expertise to revamp these houses on wheels into beautiful trailer park palaces. The second episode features the Tyler’s, a family of three living in Woodland Hills, Calif. – Angela, her fiancé, Ken and her son, Tim. Angela has a house full of antiques, but Ken and young Tim would rather use the china cabinet to store Harley Davidson parts and Hot Wheels. As Angela puts it, they are stuck in a world of inherited furniture and a 1973 mobile home that’s falling apart. Premieres Friday, May 23 at 9:00 p.m., ET/PT
