CMT to Debut `Pontoon Payday’ Gameshow in May

CMT will once again team with Jersey Shore producers 495 Productions to debut in May a new gameshow series Pontoon Payday.

The show takes unsuspecting lake-goers and places them on a “floating game show” boat hosted by comedian Frank Nicotero. Contestants who provide incorrect questions to answers posed on the game show get thrown overboard, according to network officials.

Pontoon Payday will debut May 14 at 10, following the second season premiere of Party Down South 2 (pictured), also produced by 495 Productions. The series follows a strong freshman campaign in which it averaged more than 3 million weekly viewers, according to CMT.
