Crank Yankers Revival

Crank Yankers Revival

Crank Yankers is returning to Comedy Central with a 20-episode series order from original creators, Jimmy Kimmel, Adam Carolla and Daniel Kellison. No, this news didn't come from 1998, it was announced yesterday at the Television Critics Association's winter tour. 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.

Texans Release Demaryius Thomas
Thomas ranks second in franchise history in yards and touchdowns, trailing only wide receiver Rod Smith (11,389; 68). He was signed through next season at a $14 million salary, none of which was guaranteed.

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.
