COUNTRY FRIED HOME VIDEOS (episode 4) - 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. Fans interested in submitting their very own “country fried” home movies can go to CMT.com, where they can also check out the best full length clips from each week’s episode. Comedian Bill Engvall hosts CMT’s half-hour series, COUNTRY FRIED HOME VIDEOS. Now in its fourth season, the series features real home videos shot by real people, showing what real Americans do for fun. Premieres Friday, August 1 at 9:00 p.m., ET/PT
MABE IN AMERICA (episode 5) - 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. In this episode, Mabe and his hidden cameras have fun with live newscasts, baby monitors, and a truly one-of-a-kind porta-john. Premieres Friday, August 1 at 9:30 p.m., ET/PT
