DESCRIPTION: (from CMT's press release, August 2012) A passion project for Executive Producers Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos, CHEER goes inside the high stakes, high pressure world of competitive cheerleading with tough-as-nails coach, Patty Ann Romero. Romero's senior team consists of 20 highly-conditioned athletes capable of jaw-dropping stunts and perfectly choreographed dance moves. When they're not practicing in their New Jersey gym, these ordinary teenage girls must balance a grueling schedule of conditioning and competitions along with school and the pressures of everyday life. CHEER debuts at 11/10c on Friday, September 7, and begins its regular 10/9c timeslot the following week.
