TV briefs: 'Party Down South'

The Fresno BeeDecember 27, 2013 

Party on: From the producers of "Jersey Shore" comes "Party Down South." The new cable series launches at 10 p.m. Jan. 16 on CMT.

The new one-hour, 10-episode series follows eight young, brazen adults for one wild summer of extreme fun. Their summer vacation spot, Murrells Inlet, S.C., may never be the same after these fast friends work, party and bond with one another over their common love of the South.

Party on also: MTV's "Real World: Ex-plosion" is ready to take over San Francisco when the season premieres at 10 p.m. Jan. 15 on the cable channel.

The series starts when seven single strangers, who all have complicated relationships with their exes, move into the "Real World" house to embark on this journey to embrace their freedom. In a first for the franchise, things take a dramatic turn several weeks in when the exes of the original seven roommates surprisingly take the house by storm and move right in.

This new living arrangement throws a wrench in the roommates' love lives as jealousy, scandal, fights, hookups, breakups and makeups take over the house and everyone has to learn to live with one another.

Mark your calendar: The CW announced its midseason schedule including the premiere of two new dramas, "Star-Crossed" and "The 100" plus the second season of "Whose Line is It Anyway?"

The futuristic story of an alien/human romance begins with the premiere of "Star-Crossed" at 8 p.m. Feb. 17. The human race returns to planet Earth in the post-apocalyptic adventure drama "The 100," which will premiere at 9 p.m. March 19.

"Whose Line Is It Anyway?" will be back at 8 p.m. March 2.
