MTV Cooks Up Another Season Of The Sunday Stew Premiering Sunday, March 6th Featuring The New Series "Damage Control," Plus Returning Favorites "Punk'd," "Pimp My Ride" & "Viva La Bam"

New York, NY (February 10, 2005) � MTV�s popular Sunday Stew line-up will return on March 6th with an all-new fourth season featuring a recipe of returning favorites including �Pimp My Ride� at 9pm ET/PT, �Punk�d� at 10pm ET/PT, and �Viva La Bam� at 10:30pm ET/PT, along with the series debut of �Damage Control� at 9:30pm ET/PT. The Sunday Stew continues to be one of MTV�s most successful destinations, especially among young male viewers. Last season, the Sunday Stew block was the most watched in its time period (Sun 9-10:30p) among males 12-17 versus all of television, even out-delivering broadcast. In addition, the Sunday Stew block ranked number one in its time period among P12-24 versus all cable programming reaching 30.5 million viewers.

As part of the new Sunday Stew line-up, MTV will debut �Damage Control,� wherein one all-American teenager is left home alone for the weekend while MTV�s hidden cameras follow every move. Faced with compromising situations thanks to the Damage Control team of actors, the parents watch from next door with host, and Simple Plan lead singer, Pierre Bouvier, trying to guess just what their son or daughter might do next. When guest star/rapper Fat Joe stops by and offers to buy the family�s house, will the subject of the prank sign the deal � without checking with his parents first? Will another subject star in a local politician�s commercials after finding out that the politician isn�t quite the upstanding citizen he appears to be? With cash at stake, how well do these parents know their kids, and how honest will these teenagers be with their parents when the parents return home. Guest stars include Vanilla Ice, Kelly Clarkson, Hulk Hogan, Vanessa Carlton, Omarion, J.C Chasez, Rob Schneider, Wee Man, T.I., the band Simple Plan, and many more.

After another unforgettable season of turning less-than-luxurious rides into pimped out masterpieces with �Pimp My Ride,� MTV will head back into the garage with rapper and car enthusiast Xzibit and the guys from West Coast Customs to make the dreams of a few young automotively-challenged fans come true. Ashton Kutcher will also return to host another season of �Punk�d� as he once again takes aim on his hapless celebrity friends with more over-the-top pranks. Finally, also returning are the antics of skateboarding pro and former �Jackass� star Bam Margera as he lives at home and wreaks havoc on his unsuspecting friends and family in a new season of �Viva La Bam.�
