We know what you're thinking, you're thinking that this is some sort of joke, that there is simply no way that, nearly five full years after the last episode aired, "Punk'd" is coming back. As you read this, you are kind of certain that Ashton Kutcher is about to appear in a pop-up window and laugh and laugh and laugh at you for taking this entry seriously. He isn't (although, we'll admit, that would be awesome). This is serious -- "Punk'd" is really and truly back. Weird and disturbing? It might be, but that doesn't mean that it won't be fun to see celebrities get their comeuppance. Each week will feature a different celebrity host (see, no worries about a Kutcher pop-up).
HitFix Reviews and Ratings
C+One of the few fresh gimmicks for "Punk'd" 2.0 is that the show is no longer exclusively hosted by Ashton Kutcher. The "Two and a Half Men" star is still on board as a producer but a rotating slate of celebrities are set to front the pranks as "Saturday Night Live"-style guest hosts. The premiere delivered the biggest gun in the arsenal: Justin Bieber, who proved positively giddy at the prospect of punking his pals Taylor Swift, Sean Kingston and Miley Cyrus.
