MTV’s “Pranked” with Streeter and Amir returns, “Megadrive” with Johnny Pemberton debuts tonight

Following the "reunion" episode of Jersey Shore tonight, MTV is premiering an hourlong block of series featuring comedians in silly situations.

First comes the return of Pranked, in which CollegeHumor's Streeter and Amir preside over and deliver commentary on the best homemade pranks they find online. That's followed by the debut of MegaDrive, which puts comedian Johnny Pemberton behind the wheel of outrageous vehicles and lets him loose. That, in itself, I guess is also a prank on the vehicles' owners and makers.

Here are a couple of clips. First from the season three premiere of Pranked:


And here's a look at Johnny Pemberton on MegaDrive. So, this looks nuts. Pemberton looks nuts. Look at these nuts! Thursday, Thursday, Thursday:

  1. Thanks for posting about MEGADRIVE! It’s gonna be awesome! Kurt Braunohler and Scotty Landes wrote it so it should probably be radical.

  2. Is there any show on TV more mean spirited than this “PRANK” show? It just seems like a less creative Jackass with unwilling participants.
