Help me - name of a prank show from a few years ago

I can't think of what this show was called. It was a short-lived prank show in the mold of Scare Tactics, Jamie Kennedy Experiment. It had an annoying little twerp of a host who did obnoxious intros for each clip. I want to say it was on network television, but I'm not 100% sure.

Any help?

Hmm - nope. I want to say the host was one of the guys who did all those interviews for "I Love the 80s" - a little dark-haired guy.

There was one with Michael Ian Black of Ed, Celebrity Poker Showdown and VH1's I Love the ____.

SPY TV was the name, I think.

The look on Anne's face when she finally came down from the attic to find that she had been tricked into hiding up there for all that time was priceless. You have to have some dedication to pull off a prank like that.

That reminded me of a skit I saw on either MadTV or SNL or something like that called "You've Been Had!" with a skit like some guy going to jail for 20 years then after that, they tell him it was all a joke.
