About the series

Steve Austin`s Broken Skull Challenge is an American competition reality television series airing since July 6, 2014 on Country Music Television.

The current third season was launched on January 3, 2016.

Each episode of the series portrays a group of eight same-sex contestants competing in a number of strenuous physical challenges. Contestants usually have athletic backgrounds and/or participated in other obstacle course competitions. Steve Austin`s Broken Skull Challenge is held at “Broken Skull Ranch”, not the actual one in Texas owned by Steve Austin, but an area near LA that is used to represent it. The challenges are undertaken in a head-to-head competition, and the contestants are eliminated in each round. The last one standing has to pass another tough obstacle course and has a chance to win upwards of $10 000.

The second season returned with the premiere episode viewership of 754,000, which is a 48% increase compared to the first season average, and the third season is likely to keep to the trend. The program seems to have many fans, and there is likely to be more of the explosive and gritty action on screen.
