MTV'S BREAKOUT HIT "ROB & BIG" RETURNS ACROSS ALL MTV SCREENS WITH SEASON 2 PREMIERE TUESDAY, MAY 22nd AT 10:30PM ET/PT

"Rob & Big" Returns After Becoming One of MTV's Fastest and Best Selling Shows on iTunes, And Earning MTV2 Its Highest Rated Day in Channel History

Fans Can Download Season 2 Premiere on iTunes Tuesday, May 15th

Santa Monica, CA (May 14, 2007) � MTV's favorite modern-day odd couple is back as the network announced it will premiere season 2 of "Rob & Big" on multiple screens including MTV, MTV2, MTV.com and iTunes. Fans can catch even more offbeat adventures of professional DC Shoes skateboarder, Rob Dyrdek, his best friend and bodyguard, Christopher "Big Black" Boykin and their trusty bulldog Meaty in eight new episodes. To kick off the new season, the guys welcome an addition to the family� a miniature horse. Other season highlights include a trip to Mississippi for Big Black's family reunion, a time travel adventure that leads them to Montreal and Rob's high-stakes bet with fellow skateboarding legend, Steve Berra at the Tampa Pro 2007 Skateboard Competition. Giving fans more ways to watch their favorite shows, the new season will premiere on MTV and MTV2 on Tuesday, May 22nd at 10:30pm ET/PT and be available to download on iTunes.

After last season's successful free premiere download on iTunes, "Rob & Big" quickly established a digital fanbase, becoming one of MTV's fastest and best selling shows on the service. Season one is currently the second most downloaded MTV series on iTunes behind "The Hills." Back by popular demand, fans will once again be able to download the first episode of season two on iTunes on Tuesday, May 15th, a full week before its on-air debut. Each subsequent episode of the new season will be available to download on the Wednesday following its on-air debut. On MTV.com, viewers can watch each episode, experience exclusive footage, photos and more.

Their story is simple: After years of being hassled by cops for street skateboarding, Rob hired Big Black as his own personal bodyguard with one goal in mind -- to ride whenever and wherever he wanted. From that point on, this unexpected twosome became instant buddies who were always by each other's side. The first season featured Rob and Big as they adopted their lovable bulldog Meaty, threw their first house party, attempted to get in shape and even joined a dating service together. "Rob & Big" was created by Jeff Tremaine, one of the creators of MTV's "Jackass" and "Wildboyz" series, as well as both "Jackass" movies.

Born in Kettering, Ohio, Rob is a rare and talented breed in pro skateboarding. At 12, Rob bought his first skateboard and by 16, he had already turned pro. Shortly after he became the first street skateboarder for the DC Shoes Team. His charisma and drive are as well-known as his abilities on a board. From designing innovative shoes for DC to building skateboarding plazas around the world through his foundation, Rob continues to shape the modern skateboarding world and give back to the sport that made him a star.

At 6'6" and 416 pounds, Christopher Boykin is known as "Big Black"�"to state the obvious," he says. Born in Chicago, IL, Big Black has over 10 years of Executive Protection experience and has been embraced by the skateboarding community since teaming up with Rob and DC Shoes. Much like Rob, Big Black also has an entrepreneurial spirit, creating his own clothing line and currently working on a rap album.

The first full season of "Rob & Big" reached over 70 million total viewers (P2+) and ranked #1 in its time period (Thu 10:30-11p) among P12-34 versus cable competition. Additionally, it ranked #1 in its time period among Teens across all of television as well as generated nearly 5.5 million streams of "Rob & Big" content on MTV.com since its premiere. On MTV2, "Rob & Big" has reached 27.7 million viewers (P2+) to date. Three of the airings of "Rob & Big" from Monday, January 15th, were the top-ranked telecasts for the day, garnering its highest P12-34 ratings ever on the channel and helping MTV2 achieve its highest rated day in channel history.
