Summer is giving way to autumn, but the change in the air has failed to touch CMT programming. The Dukes of Hazzard still holds the tough timeslot of 1:00 a.m. and 2:00 a.m. Eastern time. We contacted CMT a month ago and asked if the Dukes had any chance of a better air time. CMT’s programming director declined to comment. Until further notice, the Dukes are stuck.
So, set your TiVo or cable recording device as needed, and enjoy these episodes:
Thurs Sept 8th: “People’s Choice” 1:00 a.m. Eastern, and “Arrest Jesse Duke” at 2:00 a.m. Eastern
Friday Sept 9th: “The Duke of Duke” 1:00 a.m. Eastern, and “The Runaway” at 2:00 a.m. Eastern
Fun stuff to note: “The Duke of Duke” has Daisy falling for someone that she believes to be her third cousin. While that isn’t genetically close enough to be scandalous, you can’t help but think back to the first Dukes of Hazzard episode “One-Armed Bandits” where Bo says he’d marry Daisy if she wasn’t his cousin, and she says that “it never stopped anyone in this family before.”
And it apparently wouldn’t stop Daisy, except that this third cousin has a dirty little secret. Watch to see what it is. For those of you who think Daisy is even more beautiful when she’s angry, you’ll love the ending of this one.
The episode “The Runaway” is famous for the demise of Daisy’s car, which goes out in an epic blaze of glory. Once again, Daisy is angry. Very angry. As in, chasing her cousins with a fry pan, angry. Who hasn’t seen this kind of thing in their own family at least once?
