Tonight is the night for premieres on MTV. With many of the summer seasons wrapping up tightly and the spring shows have long since been over, MTV has been in quite the conundrum of reruns, and one or two shows that are still trucking through.
So tonight is a premiereapalooza. And yes, I did just make that up. Nice and pretty, right?
Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory premieres it’s second season. If you haven’t had a chance to check out this crazy show, it definitely brings about some laughs (and at times, gasps). Skateboarding icon Rob Dyrdek dreams up a series of often eccentric business ventures from a 25,000-square-foot industrial warehouse and an office complex near downtown Los Angeles.
Following the Fantasy Factory is the second season premiere of Nitro Circus. It’s definitely not your typical circus. The ring leader is X Games medalist Travis Pastrana. This is a MTV series that showcases Pastrana and his crew of top action-sports athletes, buddies and enablers trying to top one another’s stunts week after week. He’s joined by fellow motocross racer Jolene Van Vugt, FMX rider Andy Bell, mountain bike racer Jim DeChamp, extreme skiier Erik “Rubberneck” Roner and Streetbike Tommy Passemante, a construction worker and friend of Pastrana’s who’s around to provide comic relief.
Finally, MTV is cranking out a new show, called “Pranked”.
“The new show for the Thursday night block is Pranked, a 30-minute program that showcases the best pranks ever caught on camera and posted online. Known for their seven part Prank War, which has received over 5 million views online, hosts, College Humor.com’s Streeter Seidell & Amir Blumenfeld, provide commentary during each episode. The internet celebrities bring their humor to television as viewers watch homemade pranks that are engineered, executed and filmed by kids and normal everyday people, with no help from producers, professional editors or cameramen. When it comes to silly humor, MTV curates the best online pranks and couples it with the best comedic commentary.”
Sounds hilarious. Don’t forget to tune in to MTV tonight, when you are looking for a laugh.
