Spike TV introduces America to the international sensation, THE DUDESONS, a huge hit for the past four years on Finnish TV. This extreme stunt comedy comes to Spike TV with eight episodes and features the wild antics of four loveable, yet lunatic childhood best friends who live life to the fullest in the desolate Arctic Circle. Despite broken bones, countless trips to the hospital and near death experiences, THE DUDESONS continue to perform the craziest and most dangerous stunts imaginable. From perilous car and motorcycle jumps to indoor bonfires to being a human dartboard, life holds no limits and there are no rules in these inventive comedic skits.

Premieres Thursday, July 6 (10:30-11:00 PM, ET/PT). Encores Saturdays (1:00 - 1:30 AM, ET/PT).

RAISING THE ROOFS is an unscripted comedy series that stars working actor Michael Roof, Jr., and his prank-pulling, beer-swilling, over-the-top, back- country family. Michael Jr. was born and raised in a small town of Dunnellon, Florida, with a population of 2,000, where his extended family still resides. In search of fame and fortune, he moved to Hollywood and has landed a number of supporting roles in films such as The Dukes of Hazzard and Black Hawk Down. RAISING THE ROOFS explores what happens when his family -- his father, Michael Sr. and Uncle Stevie -- pack their bags and their pet pig, and take on the bright lights and big city of Los Angeles for an open ended visit. Can these small town, larger-than-life characters adapt to big city life? And more importantly, will Michael Jr.'s career survive the family's visit?
