Ashton Kutcher and MTV Rebooting 'Punk'd', Jon Bon Jovi Death Rumors, and HBO Cancels 'Hung' and Two Other Shows


MTV and Ashton Kutcher Are Bringing Back 'Punk'd'

Anyone who used to watch Punk’d knows that the show, which was hosted by Ashton Kutcher, was hilarious.  The situations that celebs were put into were seriously entertaining.

punkdUnfortunately the show hasn’t been on for quite some time, which many celebrities have probably been very happy about.

Well, watch Hollywood, no one is safe anymore because the show is back!

The show will officially be revived by MTV and Kutcher, along with Jason Goldberg, will be its executive producer.

Don’t get too excited just yet.  It may not be quite the same as it was before because Kutcher may not resuming his hosting duties.

So, who will host the show?

It’s a secret.  At least until NYE, when MTV will announce the new host during the network’s live party telecast. 

Jon Bon Jovi is the Latest Celebrity Casualty of an Internet Death Hoax

For some reason Hollywood death hoaxes have become very popular.  It seems like a new celebrity is rumored to have died on a daily basis. Bon Jovi photo from http://www.hollywoodbackwash.com
The latest celebrity to fall victim to the vicious rumors is Jon Bon Jovi.

Fans of the rocker had to endure the news that the Jon Bon Jovi died, thanks to rumors started by dailynewbloginternational.  

According to the site, the singer was found unconscious in Asbury Park, NJ at the Empress Hotel. The 49-year-old Bon Jovi front man was then taken to the Jersey Shore Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Yeah, not true.

Bon Jovi was a pretty good sport about the whole thing, taking to Facebook to post a pic of himself holding a sign that read “Heaven looks a lot like New Jersey,” and bearing the time and date so his fans would know he’s still alive and rockin’!

HBO is Canceling 'Hung', 'Bored to Death', and 'How to Make it in America'

HBO is on a rampage.  The network is axing shows left and right.

Don’t worry, Boardwalk Empire isn’t going anywhere.

But, the same can’t be said for 'Hung,' 'Bored to Death,' and 'How to Make it in America.'  The network recently announced that all three shows have been cancelled, while 'Enlightened' is still in the lineup, having been picked up for a second season.

Hung’s audience may have dropped during its second season, but it has the largest number of viewers compared to the other two, making the cut a shocker.

Both How to Make it in America and Bored to Death saw a drop in ratings, so it’s really no surprise why these two will be gone.

What is surprising is that Enlightened had an even smaller audience than those shows.  But, its saving grace probably came from both critic approval and two Golden Globe nominations that the show recently received.
