'Party Down South' Cast

Hey Y'all ... We Got HUGE Pay Raises

Break out the Bud Light and the cheez whiz ... the cast of "Party Down South" is celebrating 'cause their network just folded like a cheap suit and they scored HUGE pay raises ... TMZ has learned. 

As we've reported, the 8 cast members had demanded 1,400% pay raises -- from a measly $500 an episode to $7,500 -- but CMT refused to budge ... until now.

We're told everyone settled on a 400% increase -- to $2,000 an episode.  But CMT sweetened the pot by giving the cast a ratings bonus, and it's likely they'll collect on it ... the show is the most successful ever on the network.

So CMT announced Friday the show is officially coming back for Season 2.

You know what that means -- more backyard pee parties!

I don't know which is worse...these worthless losers wasting their precious lives, simply existing...or the brain dead mouth breathers who watch their show. Both groups will wake up in shock one day 50 years from now, asking themselves "where has the time gone?"

Wow-a bunch of drunk morons peeing in the back yard is the highest rated show. Oh America-what has happened to you since the good ol TV days of The Andy Griffith Show and The Jeffersons.

Can't believe that a rich Country like America has so many attention whores. What's with all this obsession with being famous?...Can't these people find real jobs than acting like losers. SMH

They have nothing new to offer. They've shown all their cards. It's gonna be more of, 'Martha, stop it' and 'I'm a boudreax' and 'Daddy this daddy that, marlin, shark...blah blah blah'. What a waste of money, tv time and everything else.

I tried to watch this and got about 1 minute in and had to change the channel. This is what TV has come to? Sad. Guess the viewers have an IQ of a Trig and the attention span of a nat. Americas future....
