Impractical Jokers centers on four real-life best friends – Q, Sal, Joe and Murr - who dare one another to do ridiculous things in public. They then capture their extreme dares on hidden camera, complete with the unsuspecting public's amused, confused, or flabbergasted reactions. After completing each dare, the guys are given a thumbs-up or a thumbs-down to determine who succeeded under pressure and who collapsed in defeat. At the end of each episode, the guy with the most fails must face a mortifying punishment with truly humiliating consequences.
Impractical Jokers premiered on truTV to critical acclaim in December 2011 and quickly became one of the network's biggest hits, especially among young adults. The show averaged 2.8 million viewers in Q1 2013 and ranked among basic cable’s Top 5 programs in the timeslot with key adult and male demos. Impractical Jokers is also one of truTV's youngest-skewing series, scoring a median age of only 32. In addition, the show's Facebook page has garnered more than 825,000 fans and its YouTube videos have been viewed more than 1.2 million times.
The third season of Impractical Jokers will debut on truTV later this year, along with the six episodes of Jokers After Party, a brand new post-show series featuring Q, Sal, Joe and Murr chatting about their favorite moments from various episodes.
