Punk’d Is Dead


Ashton Kutcher is putting to rest his celebrity prankster reality brainchild, after eight season of jerking the chains of his famous friends. The premiere of the final season will take place next month, much to the hesitant relief of those high-profile acquaintances in Ashton’s inner circle.

The final season of MTV’s Punk’d, which premieres April 10, will showcase Hilary Swank, Magic Johnson, Nelly Furtado and Jewel getting served. For those who can’t wait that long, all eight new episodes will air back-to-back during a “sneak peek marathon” on April 7.

This certainly is the end of an era. I feel somewhat wistful now that I realize that I no longer have time to try and get famous enough to be worthy of a punking.
