Reality Round-Up: 'One Man Army,' 'Texas Women,' New Season of 'Extreme Couponing'
-For those of you who like seeing the peak of human performance or wallowing in your own guilt at never achieving the peak of human performance, the Discover Channel has something for you.
"One Man Army" will really put the "competition" in "competition reality show" - each week, four new competitors drawn from the Navy Seals, Marines, Air Force, Army, U.S. Marshalls Service, SWAT, and other law enforcement agencies will be pitted against each other in extreme physical challenges. Top fighters from extreme sports such as mixed-martial arts will also get a crack at it. The challenges? Pretty much everything you've ever seen in an action movie.
-Looking for something a little less intimidating? TLC has renewed "Extreme Couponing," which follows people trying to push coupons to their absolute limit. The first season, which attracts an average of nearly two million viewers, is still going on, and will soon feature a woman trying to get $3,100 worth of groceries for under a hundred bucks. I'm listening...
-Finally, where would we be without Texas women? Well, for one thing, Country Music Television would be one show poorer, as Entertainment Weekly reports that they will be airing a show by that name starting July 14th. The show centers around four women, three of them in the rodeo industry, one an aspiring singer, who "can fight like cats on a Saturday night, then wake-up Sunday, apologize, and go to church together," according to Jayson Dinsmore, CMT's executive vice president of development. Head over to EW to meet the women in their exclusive trailer, and get a little taste of what exactly barrel racing is.
