They don't get any extra time off their sentence. If they are in their with a sentence that has parole, then that fact is introduced to the parole board that does their hearing, but if they are doing 15 years, and the good behavior program will give them credit of one day for every two that they serve, provided that they don't do anything to loose it, like get in trouble for contraband, or fighting, then they will do something 10 or so years. Doing the show won't make it 9 years and 9 months.
