NEW YORK, June 25 -- VH1 and Entertainment Weekly are teaming up once again to challenge America on their pop culture savvy for VH1's original series "The 2007 World Series of Pop Culture." Presented by Alltel Wireless, this year's show will award $250,000 to the winning team. From the executive producer of "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire," "The 2007 World Series of Pop Culture" is the ultimate pop culture competition designed for teams to display their astounding range of knowledge about everything music, television and film. Hosted once again by NY1 News anchor Pat Kiernan "The 2007 World Series of Pop Culture" will premiere on VH1, Monday, July 9. The series will air Monday-Thursday at 9 PM* for a two-week period of time.

All episodes will be available for on-demand viewing on VH1.com, following the nightly on-air broadcasts. "Meet the Teams" video clips will launch on VH1.com on June 25, two weeks prior to the on-air premiere and the VH1 Blog will offer episode recaps and commentary each morning following each on-air broadcast.

This season, VH1 has upped its "World Series of Pop Culture" digital offerings with the launch of its new site "http://www.WorldOfPop.com," a trivia gaming site for fans to test themselves against some of the smartest and addicting online trivia games out there. "WorldOfPop.com" has launched with five games -- for users of various trivia expertise -- and will introduce new games regularly. Users can create profile pages and avatars and starting next month will feature multiplayer and head-to-head gaming.

WorldOfPop.com will also host the "TriviaDome" competition each night immediately following the on-air broadcast at 10 PM*. Users will be presented with 25 questions. Players are eliminated when they get one answer wrong -- the "last man standing" wins $2,500 every night. (Note -- the contest will be played twice every night -- 10 PM on the east and west coasts. Users are eligible to play twice, no matter where they live.)

On the final night of "The 2007 World Series of Pop Culture," a special $10,000 "Ultra TriviaDome" competition will be hosted. There will only be ONE contest (for both coasts) beginning at 10 PM ET. The contest will contain 50 questions, and ALL of the questions will come from the previous nights' episodes. If you've been watching you'll already know the answers!

"The 2007 World Series of Pop Culture" and the nightly online "TriviaDome" competition are presented by Alltel Wireless. Alltel Wireless will provide the $250,000 on-air cash prize and the at-home cash prizes (totaling $50,000). Additionally, Alltel Wireless will present a nightly SMS trivia game where viewers can test their pop culture prowess by texting keyword: IQ to 22422 on their Alltel Wireless phones. During the show, five true/false questions will be sent to users mobile phones. At the end of each show, users will receive their PCIQ score on their mobile phone. Players who answer all the questions correctly will be entered into a randomly chosen drawing for $500 each night.

Can't wait for the nightly "TriviaDome" contest on "WorldOfPop.com" beginning July 9? Visit the new site now where current games offered include:

-- "In Or Out." Users are challenged to figure out what/who DOESN'T belong in a pop culture-focused grouping.

-- "Puzzle Race." Users answer questions which reveal parts of a famous face -- the faster you can guess who it is, the better your score.

-- "Too Many Questions." You have the answers, now you just have to match the questions -- the trick is there are more questions than answers provided.

-- "Pop Culture Smackdown." Love "Whack A Mole?" You'll love smashing down the answers to pop culture questions.

-- "Trivia Survivor." Get one wrong, you're off the island!
