truTV Orders 15th Season of Long-Running Favorite "truTV Presents: World's Dumbest..."

Series Sets Out to Prove the World Is Getting Dumber in New and Exciting Ways

truTV has ordered a remarkable 15th season of truTV Presents: World Dumbest..., the hilarious show that puts videos through a celebrity-commentator meat grinder. Billed by its producers as "the smartest dumb show on television," World's Dumbest... airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. (ET/PT), with the new season set to launch Thursday, Feb. 28.

This season, World's Dumbest... will include appearances by veteran commentators Danny Bonaduce, Todd Bridges and Leif Garrett, among others. Joining them is an outstanding roster of buzz-worthy comedic talent including Chelsea Peretti, Jared Logan, Rachel Feinstein, Chris Fairbanks, and Brendon Walsh. Each week, this self-appointed gang of cultural critics will provide hilarious commentary while presenting videos of the world's most idiotic suspects, drivers, fans, daredevils, competitors and partiers imaginable. In addition, the show's groundbreaking sound design, animation, original music and scripted comedy bits will take things further than ever before, with a lot of big surprises in store.

World's Dumbest... averaged 1.1 million viewers in its 14th season, up 7% compared to the prior season. The show also garnered 598,000 adults 18-49 (+11%) and 343,000 men 18-49 (+11%).

Last year, truTV released the truTV World's Dumbest App for iPhone. The free app allows fans to watch the best clips from the series, receive tweets from the stars, talk to other fans and get their daily dose of numbskull news from the show's Dumb as a Blog. Users can also check their friends for signs of intelligence using the app's Stupidity Detector.

truTV has ordered 8 episodes for the 15th season of World's Dumbest... The series is produced by Meetinghouse Productions, which recently scored a viral hit with Leif Garrett in a parody of Brad Pitt's Chanel No. 5 ad.
