BET Is Reviving Punk’d; Justin Timberlake Is Already Crying

Here’s another revival for the slate: BET is bringing back Punk’d, Ashton Kutcher’s brilliant prank show that brought celebrities to their knees. You are correctly remembering that MTV brought Punk’d back briefly in 2012, when it featured rotating guest hosts like Justin Bieber. As of yet, BET hasn’t announced who would be attached to the project, but said that the show would be “tailored” to its audience. Kutcher set the bar when he tricked JT into believing the government was seizing all of his property. Go forth and make some tears, BET!
