About truTV's Impractical Jokers

truTV's hit series Impractical Jokers centers on Q, Murr, Joe and Sal, four longtime friends who dare one another to do ridiculous things in public, then capture their extreme dares on hidden camera, complete with the unsuspecting public's amused, confused, or flabbergasted reactions. After completing each dare, the guys are given a thumbs-up or a thumbs-down to determine who succeeded under pressure and who collapsed in defeat. At the end of each episode, the guy with the most fails must face a mortifying punishment with truly humiliating consequences.

Impractical Jokers Season 2.1 Sneak Peek: http://www.trutv.com/shows/impractical-jokers/videos/exclusive-impractical-joker-sneak-peek.html.

Impractical Jokers premiered on truTV to critical acclaim in December 2011 and quickly became one of the network's biggest hits, especially among young adults. The show averaged 2.8 million viewers in Q1 2013 and ranked among basic cable's Top 5 programs in the timeslot with key adult and male demos. Impractical Jokers is also one of truTV's youngest-skewing series, scoring a median age of only 32.

truTV recently renewed Impractical Jokers for a third season. The network also greenlit a new post-show, entitled Jokers After Party, which will launch in conjunction with season three. Impractical Jokers and Jokers After Party are produced for truTV by NorthSouth Productions (Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta, Double Divas), with Charlie DeBevoise and Mark Hickman serving as executive producers.
