Ashton Kutcher headed back to 'Punk'd'

This is not a prank: Ashton Kutcher is coming back to host a special episode of Punk’d, the show he created in 2003.

The one-time-only return engagement will air June 3 as part of the 2012 MTV Movie Awards pre-show. Last week, MTV announced that Russell Brand will be trying his hand as a first-time Movie Award host, after hosting the MTV Video Music Awards in 2008 and 2009.


Boy band The Wanted 'Punk'd' by Tyler, The Creator -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

As you likely know, MTV’s Punk’d is back, with different celebrities at the helm each week. This Thursday, Odd Future star Tyler, The Creator, is taking on “Glad You Came” boy band The Wanted. EW has an exclusive sneak peek video at the punking below.

“They’re big in the U.K., but this is their first time in America,” Tyler tells the cameras. “But I’m about to f— that up.” Then, you see the group being detained by police during their visit to the States. “We’re a boy band.” one member of the group tells an officer. To which the cop hilariously replies: “Do you shave your chest?”

“He’s about to cry,” you can hear Tyler tell his crew in a secret van.

Needless to say, this punking ought to be a good one. This episode of Punk’d — which also finds the Kardashians‘ Scott Disick and 90210‘s Shenae Grimes getting punk’d — airs Thursday, April 19 at 10 p.m. on MTV. Watch the exclusive clip here:


'Punk'd,' 'Pauly D' ratings strong, but no 'Shore'

MTV’s revival of Punk’d and the debut of its first Jersey Shore spin-off launched to strong numbers Thursday night, though fell shy of the standards set by hits like Shore and the Teen Mom franchise.

Punk’d delivered 3.2 million viewers at 10 p.m., while Pauly D had 2.9 million viewers. Both were the night’s top show in MTV’s target 12-34 year-old demographic. By (perhaps unfair) comparison, Teen Mom has clocked 4 million viewers and Thursday night mainstay Shore has delivered over 8 million.
