  • I don’t watch anything on CMT, but from the sounds of it, it’s much like MTV, where the “M” is completely irrelevant.

    • My thoughts exactly. I’m going to watch CMT as long as they play videos but once they only play them at times when I’m not awake, I’ll be searching for a new channel to watch in the morning. I really with CMT did NOT think they had to be like their sister network MTV :(

  • not surprised on the numbers for Leverage. I am a huge fan and did not even see any promos for the new season. I saw it only as I had the dvr set to record new episodes. Imagine my surprise when I saw Leverage on my playlist
