CAN YOU DUET (episode 8) - 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 six 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 30 at 8:00 p.m., ET/PT
MOBILE HOME DISASTER (episode 3) - 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 third episode features The Schmidt’s who are a blended family building a life in a multi-colored mobile home that once served as a daycare center. Lisa is mother to Alex and Melanie and Gary is the father son, Andrew. When Gary and Lisa met, it was love at first sight and soon after, they married. They can’t say the same about their mobile home. The home still has the original day care colors and wallpaper. There is even a chalk drawn hopscotch court under one of the carpets. It’s a true embarrassment for the family. Lisa and Gary have strived to make a better life for their kids; after Lisa was laid off from her job, she decided to go back to school. She worked hard and eventually earned her masters in geography… she now teaches at the local community college. Premieres Friday, May 30 at 9:00 p.m., ET/PT
