What do you think? Did you watch the videos? Do you plan to check out the Still the King TV series premiere on CMT?
I watched the entire season and it was even more funny than I expected. I hope it comes back SOON because most of the other so-called comedies are poorly written and not funny. It’s all the same stuff. Not this though. It is definitely different.
