As if one whoring of Southern culture and abandonment of even the most basic values in the obsequious search for the almighty advertising dollar wasn’t enough, CMT has decided to double down on their already embarrassing, tasteless, and crime-riddled reality show franchise Party Down South, and launch Party Down South 2 according to a recent announcement.
