CBS Replaces "Strikeforce" with "Tractor Pulls"
Apr 19, 2010
"Tractor Pulls will be despicable and morally repugnant too," says new host Gus Johnson
New York – After an ugly brawl on its live Saturday night Strikeforce broadcast, CBS announced today it would replace its MMA programming with Tractor Pulls.
CBS's new "Turbo-Cooled Saturday Extravaganza" will be anchored by a studio show, Tractor Pulls Center, hosted by Gus Johnson.
"I've had a lot of fun with Strikeforce's skull stomping and groin gouging," said Johnson, a lifelong MMA fan, "but Tractor Pulls will be despicable and morally repugnant too, or I wouldn't be part of it."
In a related story, reflecting the network's confidence in Tractor Pulls as a franchise-in-the-making, CBS announced it had made the highly unusual (and expensive) decision to greenlight two other Tractor Pulls-related shows: a late-night adult series, Pull This, Sucka, starring Paris Hilton, and a reality game show, Martha Stewart's You Bet Your Tractor.
