"Best Of Pranked" Set To Air on Saturday, October 30 At 8PM ET/PT

New York, NY (October 27, 2010) - MTV is bringing back outrageous stunts and hilarious pranks with an all new Thursday night lineup beginning November 4 at 10PM ET/PT. The current lineup includes "Pranked" at 10:00PM ET/PT, a hysterical clip-driven series that features the best pranks caught on video. The craziest night on television continues with MTV's brand-new series, "MegaDrive" at 10:30PM ET/PT, a show that gives road rage a whole new meaning as comedian and human crash test dummy Johnny Pemberton takes the fiercest vehicles in America on joyrides over land sea and air, while gently torturing their unsuspecting owners. Some permanent damage may or may not have occurred.

Thursday night lineup includes:

"Pranked" 10:00PM ET/PT

MTV's series, "Pranked" returns with a new season that is sure to have your gut busting. Known for their seven part Prank War, which has received over 5 million views online, hosts, CollegeHumor.com's Streeter Seidell & Amir Blumenfeld, provide commentary during each episode. The internet celebrities bring their humor to television as viewers watch homemade pranks that are engineered, executed and filmed by kids and normal everyday people, with no help from producers, professional editors or cameramen. When it comes to silly humor, MTV curates the best online pranks and couples it with the best comedic commentary.

"Pranked" is executive produced by Cheri Brownlee and John Johnston of Cheri Sundae Productions. Shawn Witt and Tim Healy are the executive producers for MTV. Tony DiBari is the executive in charge for MTV.

"MegaDrive" 10:30PM ET/PT

"MegaDrive" is the show where we take the most extreme vehicles on land, sea and air and push them to their limits. And then we push them further. Hosted by fresh faced comedian and horrible driver Johnny Pemberton, "MegaDrive" follows Johnny as he learns to use and abuse some of the biggest, craziest, and most dangerous vehicles the world has ever seen while simultaneously becoming best friends and worst enemies with the vehicles' owners. From Miami to Maine, to Mexicali and back, Johnny crisscrosses the country in search of the ultimate ride while trying not to get his butt kicked or killed. Whether it's an M-1 battle tank, a jet powered semi truck, a fighter jet or hover craft, Johnny will find a way to drive it, break it, hump it, or all of the above.

"MegaDrive" is executive produced by Rob Anderson. Allison Corn and Antony Tackaberry are executive producers for Lion Television. George McTeague is the executive producer for MTV. Brent Haynes is the executive in charge for MTV.
