Most recently, Jonathan Kimmel has served as a segment director on his older brothers' late night talk show, after serving as write for the better part of three years. Maybe it's that dare that has caused Comedy Central, as per Deadline, to revive a show that burned bright but briefly, helping those last few years when prank calls were still fairly easy to make go out with a bang.

Updated for a digitally driven audience, the show will now feature puppets pranking people on phones, social media, e-sport platforms, and other platforms.

Virginia vs. North Carolina Basketball Highlights (2018-19)
Virginia spread you should be all over, all from the model that has returned more than $5,000 to $100 players the last two years . UNC shot 20 more field goals than Virginia did in the game but was only 35 percent from the field while the Cavaliers were 53.3.

As for Jimmy Kimmel, he's elated to have the opportunity once again to work on a show he calls his favorite. It premiered in 2002 on Comedy Central and moved to MTV2 on February 9, 2007, running through March 30, 2007.

Even in our reboot-happy era, one would think reviving Crank Yankers would be an impossible task.
