CHEER PERFECTION, documenting the world of competitive cheerleading. From the producers of the hit series TODDLERS & TIARAS and HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO (Authentic Entertainment), this series airing at 10pm follows these pint-sized athletes of all-star cheerleading as they compete through drama, pressure and their highly competitive mothers in hopes of displaying cheer perfection. The network ordered eight episodes to series, directly following the July one-off that garnered 1.1 million viewers.
