“CMT is having a tremendous year and Steve Austin is an invaluable part of our continued growth and success,” added Frank Tanki, general manager of CMT and TV Land. “‘Broken Skull Challenge’ is a fan-favorite powerhouse and a principal component of our hit unscripted slate. This is the most hard-hitting season yet and I admire the grit and resolve of our competitors to take on Steve and his Skullbuster obstacle course.”
