"I am so excited to be working with Spike on the 'VGAs,'" said Mark Burnett. "I have teenage boys so video games are already a part of my life. They kick my butt in 'Black Ops' on a regular basis, but now are letting me win in hopes of seeing some of the world premieres before the show. We are going to have a lot of fun."
