MOBILE HOME DISASTER (episode 7) - 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. This episode stars Bonnie Talcott, a single mother who bought what she could afford – a mobile home in Thousand Oaks, CA. Although there is a lot of love, there is a real lack of space in the Talcott home. Bonnie’s daughter doesn’t have her own bedroom and shares a bed with her mother. Like their mom, the Talcott kids are passionate about giving back to the community. They work with foster care kids and participate in church youth group activities. The Talcotts are also a singing family, and one of Bonnie’s dreams is to become a real “Patridge Family”, travelling the country singing Christian music. Premieres Friday, July 4 at 9:00 p.m., ET/PT
MABE IN AMERICA - PREMIERE!
Known for plotting revenge on telemarketers with his comical phone antics, comedian Tom Mabe (“Prank It Up” and “Revenge on the Telemarketers”) comes to CMT with an all-new hidden camera prank show that takes on everyday people in everyday life. This light-hearted six-episode series features Mabe and his crew wreaking havoc on unsuspecting passerby with pranks that prey on common pet peeves such as annoyingly loud cell-phone talkers and incompetent doctors. This premiere episode has Tom addressing trespassers on his pond, some lazy ambulance drivers, and a few would-be good Samaritans. Not to mention getting back at those evil telemarketers! Premieres Friday, July 4 at 10:30 p.m., ET/PT
TRICK MY TRUCK (episode 10) - SEASON FINALE!
Gary “The Honey Man” Grose loves two things: honey making and educating people about honey making. Gary’s honey-making business produces over 18,000 pounds of honey a year, and Gary depends on his truck to haul everything from honey jars to honeybees. Gary and his truck are there every step of the way, but his truck is getting worn down from the day-to-day strain Gary puts on it. Don’t miss this “sweet” episode of TRICK MY TRUCK, as the boys pay homage to honey and turn Gary’s old flatbed into the ultimate honey-dripping hive.
