Additionally, Mitchell hosts the heartwarming TV series Tails of Valor, which looks at true stories of service animals working to change people's lives, and the educational program Best Friends Furever, which reveals the true stories of dogs who are best pals not only with humans but with a variety of different animal species. Both shows air on CBS Saturday mornings. He also recently starred as Double G, an impulsive and unpredictable billionaire rapper, on Game Shakers and served as a co-host on MTV's Deliciousness, a spinoff of Ridiculousness that showcases various funny food-themed videos from the Internet.
