LOS ANGELES, Nov. 20, 2017 /Standard Newswire/ -- TBN announces it will repurpose content from Mike Rowe's popular TV show, "Somebody's Gotta Do It", to air on the network beginning Saturday, December 2nd. The network will feature 13 half-hour episodes in its first season, with plans for more. "Somebody's Gotta Do It" will air at 9 p.m. ET following "Huckabee."
The show, which originally aired on CNN, features Rowe as he travels the country profiling interesting folks "on a mission"—from scientists to do-gooders, Rowe highlights people who, he says, "do what they do because of a weird mix of love, compulsion, obsession, dedication – whatever it is."

"I'm really excited that Somebody's Gotta Do It has found a new home. The people we feature on this show are exactly what the country needs right now–real and regular folks with a genuine sense of humor, a genuine passion for what they do, and a genuine desire to share that passion with America," said Rowe. "There's just no way you can watch this show and not feel better about the species, and I know the TBN audience will love the people who 'gotta do it.'"
The move is one of many recent decisions by TBN's chairman Matt Crouch to bring content to the network that people of faith can enjoy. To find TBN on local listings visit: www.tbn.org/watch/channel-finder.
