NASHVILLE � December 18, 2009 � CMT shattered ratings records in 2009, delivering its most-watched year ever with growth in virtually every daypart and demo.

Breakout hits on CMT this year include the series THE SINGING BEE and WORLD'S STRICTEST PARENTS, while the network continues to deliver such fan-favorites as the CMT MUSIC AWARDS, CMT CROSSROADS and INVITATION ONLY.

Setting the pace for an even bigger 2010, CMT will launch new episodes of THE SINGING BEE and CMT CRIBS in January, along with its adventure-themed programming block in April featuring the series GATOR 911 and DANGER COAST.
