USA Network has expanded its entertainment and sports programming with an upcoming slate consisting of various new unscripted series, returning hits, WWE and exclusive live sporting events. 

The network's new original unscripted series list includes celebrity game show “Barmageddon,” in which real-life buddies Blake Shelton and Carson Daly invite audiences into Shelton’s Nashville bar for a front-row seat as their celebrity friends compete in classic over-the-top bar games. The series is hosted by WWE Hall of Famer Nikki Bella.  The title is joined by the action competition series “The Chain: Alaska,” a perilous outdoor competition set in the wild and dangerous Aleutian Alaskan islands where adventure racers and survival experts battle through the elements, and each other, for a life-changing prize; “Winter Watchman,” which finds four pairs of survivalists protecting their respective lodges through the harsh Alaska winter; and “Snake in the Grass,” a social experiment hosted by Bobby Bones that drops four strangers into the wild with a chance to win big money. “Rust Hunters,” which follows a multigenerational family business as they flip old vehicles and antiques in the backwoods of New Hampshire., will also be included.

Covering sports and entertainment, new docuseries “Austin Dillon’s Life in the Fast Lane” follows the over-the-top lifestyle of Daytona 500 Champion Austin Dillon on and off the racetrack. “Race for the Championship” takes viewers inside the personal and aspirational lives of NASCAR’s top drivers and teams against the backdrop of the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs and Championship.  WWE will also count as a sports title, returning to USA Network every Monday night year-round with “WWE Raw,” which ranks as the #1 cable entertainment series on television in live viewership, and “WWE NXT,” which will continue to anchor the schedule every Tuesday night, posting year-over-year growth. 

Another returning series is the sophomore season of “Chucky,” one of the top new cable shows of last year; “Miz & Mrs,” which debuts its third season on Monday, June 6; and “Chrisley Knows Best,” which launches new episodes beginning Thursday, June 23 and enters its 10th season later this year.   USA Network will also include the U.S. Open and The Open Championship for the first time ever. The title cycles Tour de France rolls through picturesque mountains and towns before finishing on the Champs-Élysées in Paris; and the best in track & field from across the globe will be showcased at the World Athletics Championships, which will be held on U.S soil for the first time.  USA Network is also the cable home of the Premier League, which kicks off the 2022-23 season in August. Motorsports shift into gear in the second through fourth quarters, with NASCAR, NASCAR Playoffs and INDYCAR.
