'Deadliest Catch' Sneak Peek: Kerby Takes on the Crane (Exclusive Video)

Deadliest Catch is back with another new episode Tuesday night.

The Hollywood Reporter has an exclusive clip from the next episode of Discovery Channel's hit reality series, in which Kerby takes on Cape Caution's crane. But is he any good?

The episode also sees Keith and Junior form an alliance, while the Northwestern crew knocks out their rocky string but then faces a surprise challenge. Meanwhile, Elliott finally debuts his new boat on the dangerous blue crab grounds.

The ninth-season premiere of Deadliest Catch aired last week to big ratings. The season opener was up a whopping 28 percent from last year's premiere, with the episode averaging 3.47 million viewers and an extremely competitive 1.8 rating in adults 18-to-49.

Deadliest Catch airs at 9 p.m. Tuesdays on Discovery Channel.
