Season 1
Punk'd

Critics Consensus

The spirit is there, but truncated episodes eliminate the necessary tension and make Punk'd feel a little played.

Critic Reviews for Punk'd Season 1

I similarly hoped to enjoy Chance the Rapper's revival of MTV's celebrity prank series Punk'd-because Chance is charming, handsome, talented, et cetera-but the quick-bite format doesn't give the pranks enough room to build.

The "Punk'd" formula has been a success for years, so no doubt some will find the new version hilarious. For me, it was the rare and inconsequential clunker in a largely shining debut for Quibi.

Assuming the pranks are as effective moving forward, I have no doubt that this new Punk'd will become a fast favorite Quibi.

Old host Ashton Kutcher has been replaced by Chance the Rapper, whose easy charm and good-natured humor is a key reason this series works.

Its singular nature means each prank fits a single quibi well and makes for a complete viewing which is something most of the quibis here can't claim.

This might be well-suited to Quibi, even though shows like this have gone the way of the dodo amid the realm of Youtube pranks.

Punk'd ultimately feels uninspired and doesn't bring anything new to the genre.

May 13, 2020 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

I don't like pranks to begin with, but Punk'D ultimately made me feel very old, and very out-of-touch, because I didn't recognize a single celebrity being punk'd here. Who are these people?

May 13, 2020 | Full Review…

It is refreshing to know that, even in the Quibi age, the old comedy trope of "man in a gorilla suit" is as funny and fresh as it ever was, which is to say not and no

Reboot of classic MTV show has big pranks, tons of cursing.

Apr 23, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The Quibi reboot is a chaotic neutral at best-host Chance the Rapper is too classy and good-hearted for the role; he takes no pleasure in wreaking havoc on any of his guests.

The spirit of MTV's Punk'd is alive and well on Quibi.
