CBS Sports Network is giving fans multiple opportunities to watch PBR's "Last Cowboy Standing," the first-ever progressive elimination event.  The two-hour show will air on CBS Sports Network numerous times beginning this Sunday, Dec. 18 (6:00 PM, ET). 

Fans will be able to relive the special event, which featured the world's best bull riders competing in front of a sellout crowd at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.  Each of the Top 40 bull riders competed in Round 1, and riders who achieved 8 seconds advanced to the next round. The elimination format continued until the Last Cowboy Standing.

Luke Snyder took home $216,500 and the Last Cowboy Standing title. The $216,500 was the highest one-day payout of 2011, and is the second-highest in PBR history.
