Impractical Jokers - Thursdays 10PM on truTV

anyone catch it? basically four buddies dare each other to do really stupid stunts. 3 of them talking into the 4ths ear and dictate politically incorrect things for them to say and do in various situations out in public. it's beyond retarded, and at times hit or miss, but some of the jokes are hilarious.

Didn't watch it, and it's not really my style, but I've known about it for a while because I listen to the Tell'em Steve Dave podcast and Brian 'Q' Quinn is one of the hosts. He hasn't really talked about the show itself that much and when he does it's always about dealing with the network, etc and never about the content of the show.

Quinn is much funnier on the podcast than this piece of garbage.

This show is garbage. The only people who think this stuff is funny is them. How does this get to filming stage?

Originally I thought I would hate this show, but it had me in tears at least three times.

Anyone else change their tune about this show?

I expected the usual TruTV crap and haven't watched this but after reading this thread I'll have to check it out.

I personally love this show. Can't wait for the new season to kick off. I just hope they don't recycle too many jokes.

I love it too.

It's on a cable channel no one knows so doesn't get much talk.

Yeah, I saw it a few times early on and what I didn't like was them.


Went back to it later on and found it to be hilarious.

My gf loves this show. I hope my DVR remembers to record it. Seriously, some of the most awkward, uncomfortable humor I've ever seen.

Season 2 has been GREAT, except for maybe a skit or 2. Didn't catch last night yet. Will catch up tonight or tomorrow.

That must have been the 10:30 ep. It was a rerun. New shows are on at 10.

Re: Impractical Jokers - Thursdays 10PM on truTV

For anyone interested, Sal did this Reddit where he answered people's questions about the show. He provides some interesting behind-the-scenes tidbits about the show.
http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comment...ctical_jokers/

I thought this one was interesting:

Q: Can you explain why on some of the challenges, two of you go head to head as opposed to all four of you being in on the challenge?

salvulcano[S]
Sure. It can be a bunch of reasons. Most likely the "marks", or real people we interact with, refused to be on tv. In that instance you can blur them, but since the show is built around people's reactions, the blur is not ideal. Another reason sometimes is the network didn't ultimately like it. Sometimes we push things further, and it's always a risk we take, bc we are willing to go further than the network sometimes. But we have to maintain a tone to the show, so it's a necessary evil.

I love this show. Funniest thing on tv, by far. I love it when they go into supermarkets.

Yeah I love this show.

Anybody watch Shaq's new show after this last night? Probably the stupidest thing I've ever seen.

Re: Impractical Jokers - Thursdays 10PM on truTV

One of their best bits was last week, they were doing pedicures and one of them had to eat
A rib bone while doing a woman's foot. Then he had to drop it in the water and continue the pedi.
He also had to then take it out of the water and eat the rib.
