TY MURRAY’S CELEBRITY BULL RIDING CHALLENGE - SEASON PREMIERE!
Nine celebrities learn that the cutthroat world of Hollywood is nothing compared to the real life thrills of professional bull riding in the six-episode series, TY MURRAY'S CELEBRITY BULL RIDING CHALLENGE. In the one-hour series debut, the celebrities arrive in Stephenville, Texas and meet Ty for the first time. As if meeting the All-Around World Champion wasn’t enough for one day, Ty invites Justin McBride, 2005 Professional Bull Riding Champion, to the ranch to show the celebrities how bull riding is done. After watching McBride, the celebrities get a frightening up-close look at bull riding and realize that it may be a little harder than it looks on TV. After the first day of training, the celebrities get a true feel for what they have gotten themselves into and one star realizes he’s bitten off more than he can chew.

TRICK MY TRUCK (episode 4) - PREMIERE!
CMT’s famed series TRICK MY TRUCK returns for a third season when the Chrome Shop Mafia, a down-home crew of truck mechanics, take their creativity to a new level in eight new episodes. Joe Henry, from Asbury, Mo., is the proud owner of two poultry farms. He loves the work, but his only farmhand is his Dodge dually pickup truck. He works constantly, hauling feed and poultry to and from both farms. Tragedy hit Joe hard just as he was getting ahead in his business. A severe ice storm collapsed two of his poultry barns, and he lost over 500 turkeys. Now, he’s working himself and his truck to the limit in order to cover his losses and provide for his family. Tune in for another Mafia first as Joe’s dually is transformed into the ultimate pickup with attitude. Premieres Friday, August 10 at 8:00 p.m., ET/PT
