Impractical Jokers is getting another live special. No, seriously!
At truTV’s upfront presentation in New York today, the cabler announced that it had greenlit a two-hour gag-apalooza, tentatively titled Impractical Jokers Live Event Special, to debut this fall. Last year’s 100th Episode Live Punishment Special drew an impressive audience of 3.7 million.
In addition to the offshoot of the series, now in its fifth season (Thursdays, 10/9c), truTV announced that it had okayed three new shows — the pop-culture countdown Greatest Ever (premiering July 5), the docu-comedy Jon Glaser Loves Gear (premiering in the fall) and the skill-set-enhancing Lifescaping (premiering this summer).
A premiere date for the Live Event Special has not yet been announced.
When it does debut, will you be tuning in ROFL? Or are the guys’ pranks too outrageous for your taste? Weigh in below in the comments!
