It's going to happen again.

And why shouldn’t they? Think of all the celebrities that have sprouted up since the original Punk’d went off the air way back in May of 2007! Ke$ha! Justin Bieber! Kris Humphries! Casey Anthony!

Hmm. That’s all I can think of. Wow. It’s been kind of a crappy stretch for new celebs, no?

Punk’d has never been the type of show that lets crappiness get in the way of anything, so MTV has announced that Ashton Kutcher and Jason Goldberg, the show’s creators, will be producing a new run of Punk’d episodes. They haven’t announced who will be hosting the show; that announcement will come during MTV‘s New Year’s Eve spectacular, which is one more reason I won’t be tuning in to MTV’s New Year’s Eve spectacular.

Here’s my shortlist of possible hosts for the new iteration of the show:

  • Nick Cannon
  • Selena Gomez
  • 7,000 other shitty celebrities I wouldn’t piss on if they were on fire
What do you think, readers? Do you agree or disagree with my predications?

Unless it is all part of an elaborate April Fool’s Day prank, Betty White will star in her own Punk’d style prank show for NBC. Yeah, that’s the same network that went with Jay Leno over Conan. Is it any wonder they’re turning to an 89-year-old woman for inspiration? At any rate, a few proposed pranks for the show have been leaked (by “leaked” I mean I pissed them out myself a few minutes ago). Take a look.

Here Comes the Stork

A frantic Betty White will show up at Ed Asner’s house claiming she became pregnant after one of their weekly, all-out, anything-goes sex romps.

Won’t You Let Me Take You On A Sea Cruise?

Impersonating a travel agent, White will call John Travolta‘s private line demanding payment for a gay cruise he took late last year.

Golden Girl

Using a concealed water bottle, Betty will stop by several Hollywood hot spots and pretend to wet herself. She will repeatedly ask for a new chair until the manager finally refuses, at which point she will begin sobbing on the floor in a puddle of her own faux urine.

This Place Is Dead

Betty will sit on a seat at LAX pretending to be dead until someone notices. If no one notices, it will still be fun to watch Betty White pretending to be dead in an airport.

You Ought To Be In Pictures

Betty White will arrange for a meeting with Justin Bieber in order to pitch him on a remake of Harold and Maude. When he accepts. Betty will forcefully demand the two close the deal via the “casting couch.”

We’re All Pink On the Inside

After setting up a business meeting with porn producer Steven Hirsch, Betty will give a PowerPoint presentation on her new interracial porn concept, BlackinWhite.com.

Not Enough Time On the Clock

Betty goes to a car dealership and asks the salesman about a five year lease.

You Are Not Being Punk’d: Justin Bieber to Host ‘Punk’d’ Revival http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/you-are-not-being-punkd-justin-bieber-to-host-punkd-revival/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/you-are-not-being-punkd-justin-bieber-to-host-punkd-revival/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 He's coming for you, Bruno Mars. NoooooooOOOOOOOOOO!!! MTV is bringing back the series "Punk'd" and they want Justin Bieber to host it. If it were April 1st I'd be more accepting of this news, but it's not, it's October 5th. We are NOT being punk'd. The show's creators/executive producers/original hosts Ashton Kutcher and Jason Goldberg are back to exec produce, so don't go thinking the quality of the content will slip. They're all over that. Sports cars will continue to be towed and lunch orders "accidently" botched. The only difference is Justin Bieber will now emerge from around the corner to reveal the ruse with a sh*t-eating grin on his face. Let's hope 50 Cent is packing and doesn't appreciate pranks. (Deadline)
