Justin Bieber may be hosting revived 'Punk'd' for MTV




Fresh off his acting stint on CSI, Justin Bieber may have another television gig in the wings: Reviving Ashton Kutcher's Punk'd for MTV. The show's been off the air since 2007, so that's, like, a million years ago, you know.

New York magazine says Bieber is the celebrity of choice to jumpstart the show, which first debuted in 2007. Details are being worked on now, but the mag says MTV had always wanted to bring the show back from dead after Kutcher shuttered the series, which had long fallen into a trough of C-list stars and dumb stunts. We thought that was part of its charm.

Thanks to the way we chew up and spit out famous people these days, there's a whole new crop of people who are popular now but probably don't even know what this show is. Heck, high-schoolers these days probably don't even remember That '70s Show, so this ought to go very well. Thank goodness for our culture's short attention spans.
