Mama's Family Week on CMT, Laugh 'n Sniff with 'Earl'

Mama's Family, which was airing on CMT at all different times, hasn't been airing recently on CMT, but the week of May 7 you can catch a week-long stunt. Watch Mama's Family Monday, May 7 through Thursday, May 10 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. each afternoon. This won't be a regular thing because after this week, it isn't on the schedule for a few weeks at least.
Of course you can catch Mama's Family weeknights at 8pm & 8:30pm on ION Television if you miss the CMT week.

NBC sitcom My Name Is Earl will air the first-ever original "Laugh 'n Sniff" interactive episode on NBC on Thursday, May 3, 2007 at 8:00 p.m. Viewers will have an interactive experience with the episode by using a special scent card available exclusively in TV Guide's April 30 issue, available on newsstands on today (April 26).
During the episode, NBC will prompt viewers via on-air graphics to rub one of six corresponding numbered boxes on TV Guide's "Laugh 'n Sniff" scent card, which will release aromas pertaining to the My Name Is Earl storyline. The special scent card, sponsored exclusively by Oreo, Milk's favorite cookie, is available only in TV Guide's April 30 issue. Oreo cookies will be one of the six scents featured in the episode’s storyline along with other scents, including "new car smell" and "obnoxious cologne."
Yes, weird...the episode will be super-sized too, airing for 35 minutes. Storyline: When Earl lands his first real job, at an appliance store, the unseemly truths about class differences bubble to the surface. Meanwhile, the stress of Joy's impending trial causes her to make an irrational decision.
