CMT To Unveil New “Ow! My Balls!” Reality Show

February 4, 2014 - By Trigger  //  News  //  28 Comments

ow-my-ballsCMT, who has been dramatically reshaping their broadcast schedule recently, featuring a whopping 7 new reality TV shows in their latest lineup, is looking to add yet another one called Ow! My Balls! in the upcoming months. The show reportedly features a man continuously getting hit in his testicles, with no other significant plot or characters.

CMT has said that by 2016, they want to have four complete nights of original reality show programming, with the flagship being the controversial show Party Down South from the same producers of MTV’s Jersey Shore. Party Down South has been criticized by many for perpetuating negative Southern stereotypes, promoting imbecile behavior, and generally dumbing down society. Ow! My Balls! is likely to ruffle feathers even further, and was recently green-lighted with full production on the show to start soon in hopes of adding the it to next season’s lineup.

However cartoonist, voice actor, and director Mike Judge, best known for the animated series King of the Hill, and for being the director of the 2006 dystopian cult film Idiocracy, is not too happy over the upcoming reality show, and is taking action. Judge first showcased the Ow! My Balls! concept in Idiocracy, and the show portrayed in the movie virtually mirrors the one in production for CMT. Judge’s depiction of the show was meant to illustrate how the human population is slowly devolving into a state of anti-intellectualism, devoid of curiosity, and resulting in a uniformly unthinking society.

Lawyers for Mike Judge have sent CMT a “cease & desist” letter.

“This is clearly a case of intellectual property infringement by CMT,” says Mike Judge’s Lawyer Spencer Frankenfurter. “If the network had negotiated with us for the rights to use the concept, or had at least asked permission, then maybe we would be more accommodating. But as it stood, CMT wanted to make all the dough, while Mr. Judge took it in the … well, you know.”

  • The thing is, if this was real, I would not have been surprised.


  • Haha..awesome! This is 90% of what is on tv now. The sad thing is that this is what everyone wants to watch or these shows wouldn’t be so popular.


  • I think this is a spinoff–from every new show on CMT.


  • Mike Judge should just shut the hell up. He knows he stole the idea from America’s Funniest Home Videos (aka, Take One In The Nuts).


    • I totally agree. Judge really need to go sit down. All the time I was reading the article I was thinking about AHV. That very reason is why I stopped watching that show. Now there’s going to be a show dedicated to just that? My goodness. What kind of world are we living in where it is entertaining to watch a guy go through one of the most excruciatingly painful experience over and over again.

      “Judge’s depiction of the show was meant to illustrate how the human population is slowly devolving into a state of anti-intellectualism, devoid of curiosity, and resulting in a uniformly unthinking society.”

      I don’t believe we need Judge to arrive at this conclusion.


  • Hehe!

    Could ‘Ass: The Movie’ be far behind…? ;)


  • And this wouldnt be better than party down south why again?


  • For a moment there I thought it was real and i was like, wtf? Are we in the age where what’s been speculated in that movie became reality?


  • I know you wrote that as a joke, but, give it time. I bet they already have a pilot in the works, and are just waiting for the viewership to be ready for it.

    “World’s Dumbest ________” has been on for years.


  • This would be funny if it wasn’t believable that a show with this premise couldn’t be on tv and probably do well. Our programming choices are a sad reflection of the American people and a reminder that the majority of us forget our civil duties too often in favor of “bread and circuses.”


  • This one of your best ever!


  • They might as well do this….. They’ve already dumbed down the whole Country music scene. Now, all ther is is “Crap” …… “Country-Rap”


  • Wow, I can’t believe they’re already planning a spin off. This is out of control.

    “Due to the dramatic support CMT’s new show “Ow My Balls!” has received before it even airs, CMT has responded by announcing a new spin off in development called “Ow My Vagina” staring Luke Bryan.”


  • I thought Mike Judge’s attorney was Rusty Shackleford? ;-)


    • Shut up, Dale.



  • There really is nothing funnier than seeing a man get socked in the balls then squealing like a girl! If they are able to incorporate some tit-punching and fart jokes they are sure to have a ratings winner on their hands. Also, this idea is nothing new. The endless seasons of The Bachelor have (metaphorically speaking) featured some poor desperate sap getting swift kicks to the crotch by a bunch of fame-seeking-diggers.


  • guffawed pretty hard at this one. Best laugh in a while.

    still laughing.

    keepem coming.

    and thanks for this one.


  • theme song could be called

    wrecking balls


  • I look forward to these fake news posts for weeks and then once one pops up, I decide which one of my friends to scare the shit out of, because sometimes these are just believable enough to cause dismay and heartbreak. Like that Darius does Skynyrd one.


    • “Like that Darius does Skynyrd one” …. that was a joke?? Oh no, I’ve been watching out for that one! Ha ha!! I still think he’ll read that online somewhere and think it’s a good idea!


      • I pretty much live in fear of Darius coming across one of Trigger’s spoof articles and saying, “That’s inspired! Let’s do it!”


    • The one that would scare me the most right now (and would have a believable edge to it) would be a fake article that Miley Cyrus (with the help of Madonna) is recording a country album.

      Take a look at the images here (and consider she actually sang “Jolene” during this while grabbing her crotch repeatedly and then madonna came out and she get slapping Madonna’s old lady butt).


  • This is brilliant, Trigger. Genius.
    Thousands of wannabee celebrities are lining up for the role, hoping to be the next reality show superstar. And then next season we will see “Celebrity Ow!” My Balls!” with kickees like Piers Morgan and Donald Trump and Florida Georgia Line…..

    Great idea. And, of course, the kickers will do it for free.
    CMT is going to love you for this!



  • Great Stuff!!
    Made me realize how much I miss playing “Redneck Rampage”.


  • I have to admit this article made me guffaw and laugh out loud! The sad part is it’s not that far removed from reality, and especially the way CMT sees it.

    On the other hand this could be the start of a trend as just the other day the gorgeous Suzanne Santo of HoneyHoney in an interview with Galleywinter described the cold reception they received in England as follows: Suzanne: “England was a kick in the nuts.” Gosh, it’s sad to think CMT may be a cultural pace setter these days…


  • Stilla better show than party down south
