We thought it was gone for good, but BET has announced that they are bringing MTV’s Punk’d to its network. Apparently, the revamped show will be “tailored for the BET audience and would include behind-the-scenes look at how the celebrity pranks are conceptualized and carried through.”

I guess it’s unlikely Asthon Kucher will be back — who hosted the show from 2003 to 2007 — with a one-off in 2012.

“Black consumers experience BET Networks differently than any other network because of our 35 years of history, tremendous experience and insights. We continue to give our viewers what they want – high quality content that respects, reflects and elevates them.” said BET Networks chairman and CEO Debra Lee. “With more hours of original programming than ever before, our new shows coupled with our returning hits like Being Mary Jane and Nellyville make our original slate stronger than ever.”

Stay tuned for more updates.

Comedian Amy Schumer is having a particularly no-f*cks-given week and deserves to be saluted for that. On Tuesday night, she managed to both upstage Kanye and Kim Kardashian by fake-falling in front of them on the Time 100 gala red carpet, and simultaneously reveal their total composed lack of consideration for the lesser beings who unfortunately share this planet. GOTCHA, Kimye! I mean just look at the complete lack of reaction.

According to Amy, she asked her publicist if she could pretend to faceplant in from of them, and the publicist said…”well, I can’t stop you.” That’s a green light.

But while Schumer was flopping in front of Yeezy, her Comedy Central sketch comedy series, Inside Amy Schumer, was jumping off season 2…the two highlights being: 1) a catchy music video (co-starring Amber Rose and Method Man) about what America’s butt obsession really ignores. And 2) an incredible parody (co-starring Josh Charles of The Good Wife) of Friday Night Lights which addresses football’s rape culture. Ooof!

Props to the 90′ sitcom gawds because a Full House spinoff has been confirmed for release on Netflix. Last night (Apr 20), John Stamos aka Uncle Jesse appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to break the news.

Stamos says the spinoff has been in the works for years, but the original creators have finally sealed the deal. There will be a reunion and then a spinoff into a new story. According to Stamos, it will revolve around D.J. and Kimmy Kibler, who have families of their own now. There’s no word on how many of the original cast members will return — but stay tuned.

iverson trailer

The 2015 NBA Playoffs are already producing their share of excitement — Blake Griffin putting poor old Aron Baynes on a pair of posters, anyone? — but it’s never a bad time for some basketball nostalgia. Almost a year after making its debut at the Tribeca Film Festival, 214 Films’ Allen Iverson documentary, IVERSON, will finally air on May 16 on Showtime. And if this new trailer is anything to go by, expect to shed a thug tear or two by the end of the film.
