Is America’s Drunkest City really that intoxicated? SMALL TOWN THROWDOWN goes beyond the clickbait headlines plaguing some US cities.

Is America’s Most Boring Town really that dull?

Comedian Mo Mandel is on a mission to debunk the stereotypes that have plagued certain US cities in the new Discovery Channel special Small Town Throwdown, premiering Wednesday, May 20 at 10/9c.

In Wednesday’s special, Mandel travels to two cities with unfortunate branding. In Appleton, Wisconsin, known as America’s Drunkest City, Mandel searches for activities beyond the bar scene as he connects with locals who introduce him to an array of traditions. Mandel also visits Lubbock, Texas, known America’s Most Boring Town, where he meets Texas Tech University students and gets his first taste of the competitive sport of meat judging.
