[via press release from truTV]

truTV Showcases the Idiotic, the Stupid and the Downright Dumb In New Original Series The Smoking Gun Presents: World's Dumbest..., Launching Thursday, March 13, at 9 p.m.

And Together for the First Time as Commentators: Danny Bonaduce, Todd Bridges, Tonya Harding, Amy Fisher and Leif Garrett!

Not everyone can be a mastermind, but some people can display behavior so idiotic, it boggles the mind. That's the premise behind truTV's brand new original series The Smoking Gun Presents: World's Dumbest... Each week, for ten weeks, this series will showcase mindless behavior in a wide range of different situations, beginning with two episodes on the World's Dumbest Criminals, premiering Thursday, March 13, and Thursday, March 20, at 9 p.m. Among the upcoming additional installments of The Smoking Gun Presents: World's Dumbest... are World's Dumbest Drivers, World's Dumbest Daredevils and World's Dumbest Record Breakers (all working titles).

World's Dumbest Criminals will feature stories ranging from a would-be bank robber whose disguise consisted entirely of tree branches taped to his forehead to a car thief who stops to ask directions...at the home from which he just stole the car. The episodes will utilize a pool of featured commentators and panelists to help tell the stories, make light of them and bring insight into the mind of the criminally challenged. They will also feature recognizable celebrities who've had their own brushes with the law, such as Danny Bonaduce, Todd Bridges, Tonya Harding, Amy Fisher, and Leif Garrett, and such esteemed pundits as Andrew Goldberg and Bill Bastone, founders of thesmokinggun.com.

Here are some additional moments from the first episodes:

A laughable larcenist gets busted by the FBI for bragging on a local call-in radio show about his exploits;

A fugitive is trapped by police because he stopped during a daring getaway to enjoy the fried shrimp platter at a favorite local restaurant;

A determined petty thief who drastically underestimated his girth gets stuck in the grease trap of the restaurant he was trying to rob;

A creepy criminal is caught stealing a woman's underwear off of her clothesline, with the excuse that they make good slingshots;

A routine traffic stop turns into a drug bust when a driver accidentally hands the police officer a bag of heroin instead of his license;

Police get a 911 call about a drunk driver...from the drunk driver himself;

A man on probation for various crimes videotapes himself stealing, breaking and entering, wreaking havoc and finally doing drugs;

A group of boys robbing a store are surprised when the clerk sets up an obstacle course between them and the front door;

A man tries to rob a gas station dressed as Abraham Lincoln, and when the crime isn't going his way, he starts to help out the customers;

Two convenience store clerks fight back while being robbed, and the criminals have no choice but to call the police for protection.
