Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Punk'd, both the MTV original and the BET remake, is a reality show about playing pranks on celebs on a grand scale. Jokes range from stealing and illegal gambling to physical altercations, police chases, and blowing things up. There's lots of swearing ("damn," "s--t"; "f--k" bleeped) too. Occasionally pranks involve sexual subject matter, including infidelity and the injury of genitalia. Kids may find these pranks funny, but they don't send the best messages.
