Okay, so maybe that last part isn’t true, but MTV is definitely bringing back their early 2000’s throwback prank show Punk’d. Luckily for us, it seems that Ashton Kutcher isn’t going to resume hosting duties, but will stay on as an executive producer, so expect similar immature pranks on your favorite celebs.
We don’t know much about the show’s return besides what we heard from the grapevine regarding new hosts and new victims, but here’s what we do know: “Viewers will be treated to an exclusive first look at a clip from an all-new season of the series — which will return to the network in 2012 — during MTV’s annual New Year’s Eve party, set to air Saturday, December 31, at 11 p.m. ET, live from MTV’s Times Square studio.”
Is anyone else curious why Ashton Kutcher decided to bring the show back from the dead right after his marriage to Demi Moore fell apart? I haven’t seen him do anything significant in years, and all of a sudden he picks now to revive his waning career. On the bright side, at least he won’t be resuming hosting duties when the show returns, because I just hate his face.
