This Week's 'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard

April 24th, 2015 9:05am EDT
'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'Car Sick' - Middle Fingers And
This week's installment of Impractical Jokers leaves us wondering how these guys are ever let into focus groups. Or supermarkets. Or lots of places, frankly.

Anyway, their shenanigans this week include struggling through survey answers that they don't want to give, and seeing how far they can shoot toilet paper in the produce department. Read on to find out what Q, Sal, Joe and Murr got up to in "Car Sick," and which one of them was the unlucky loser.

Challenge #1: Hocus Focus
It's the good old focus group schtick: one Joker is the moderator, and has given another Joker his embarrassing a...

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: Things Get Really Uncomfortable (Watch)

April 17th, 2015 9:05am EDT
'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'Psuedo-Sumo' - Really Big Babie
In this week's episode of Impractical Jokers, things get really uncomfortable at the rental counter and the local mall. But that's child's play compared to what happens to tonight's big loser, who suffers a punishment that involves him in a diaper. Don't say we didn't warn you.

Challenge #1: Cheap Skates
In another "do and say what you're told" challenges, teams of two ruin the skate rental counter at Wollman Rink. Sal and Joe start acting like teenage girls, and that's before the challenge has even started. Then Sal has too much fun yelling at a customer to keep her hands up, and balks at...

Coffeehouse Chaos In Exclusive Clip From Tonight's 'Impractical
Man, those guys from Impractical Jokers can't go anywhere without getting into trouble. In this exclusive clip from tonight's brand-new episode, Sal Vulcano and Joe Gatto are tasked with trying to get unsuspecting coffeehouse patrons to leave. Sal is a little overzealous with his imaginary cup of coffee, while Joe takes an unexpected phone call from his shoe. Check it out below:

Also in tonight's episode entitled "Psuedo-Sumo," the guys work the rental counter at Wollman Rink (because ice skating apparently wasn't embarrassing enough for them), then cause an uproar at Palisades Mall when...

'Impractical Joker' Joe Gatto On Season Four

April 2nd, 2015 12:07pm EDT
Joe Gatto Gives Us The Dish On 'Impractical Jokers' Season Four
Our friends over at TruTV's Impractical Jokers are always busy, but right now they're really keeping their schedule booked. The fourth season of the show (which includes an important milestone!) is airing, they're about to headline multiple shows at Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Festival later this month, and they're still taking laughs around the country in their big yellow tour bus.

Somehow in the middle of all this, we caught up with Joe Gatto (pictured above, third from left, with his partners in crime James Murray, Brian Quinn and Sal Vulcano) to ask him how the Jokers are handling ...

March 27th, 2015 10:04am EDT
'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'Damned If You Do' - Jokers On I
After the Impractical Jokers showed us their first-ever tour special, they were back to business as usual, pranking America and embarrassing each other. In "Damned If You Do," we learned that none of these guys are in shape and all of them are generally out of their element. This, of course, only made everything funnier.

Challenge #1: Skate Me To Balloon
The guys are playing their awesome balloon game from "Fly Me To Balloon," except now they're making it infinitely worse by doing it on ice skates. Murr takes on Sal, and the guy they go after first has no sense of humor. The second guy bla...

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: Way More Falling Down Than Usual

March 13th, 2015 10:03am EDT
'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'Deal With The Devils' - Everyon
This week's installment of Impractical Jokers involves the Staten Island take on the game Silent Library, more missing spouses who have to be found at the local mall, and people getting hit with hockey pucks. What more could you want?

How about an episode that features more falling down than usual, and yes, most of it involves Sal. Read on for our scorecard from the short but sweet "Deal With The Devils."

Challenge #1: Shhh!
In this head-to-head game, the guys have invaded Pace University's library, and they're asked with getting through all the items in their "mystery bags" without getti...

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: The Mistake Episode

March 6th, 2015 10:05am EST
'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'The Blunder Years' - The Mistak
This week's Impractical Jokers features another of the show's rare celebrity cameos - this time in the form of actress Danica McKellar, best known for her role as Winnie Cooper on the classic sitcom The Wonder Years (hence the title of this episode).

Unfortunately for Danica, she has to see James Murray mostly naked. And that's just one of the things that goes wrong in "The Blunder Years." This is one of those cases where everything that can get messed up, does get messed up.

Challenge #1: Did I Deserve That?
At the corner convenience store, the guys have to endure a water-throwing confro...

Is This The Funniest 'Impractical Jokers' Moment Ever?

February 27th, 2015 10:12am EST
Is This The Funniest 'Impractical Jokers' Moment Ever?
Our friends the Impractical Jokers know how to get laughs, but in this week's episode - appropriately titled "Elevating the Game" - they may have outdone themselves thanks to some dumb luck and James Murray's willingness to play dumb.

In the episode's opening bit, the Jokers are working the counter at a local burger joint (maybe White Castle finally had enough of them). By total chance, the unsuspecting customer Murr waits on happens to be a friend of the establishment's owner.

Once the Jokers production team finds that little fact out, they take Murr's turn to a whole new level of hilari...

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'Wrong Playwright' - Nugget Visits The Mothership

February 20th, 2015 10:07am EST
'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'Wrong Playwright' - Nugget Visi
In this week's Impractical Jokers, there's more mayhem in the grocery store, Murr still has no luck with women, and a familiar mascot drops by to say hello (or to plot murder, who knows). It all reaches a head with the all too memorable theme of Brian Quinn finding out he has no career in the arts.

Challenge #1: Hide and Sneak
The guys are playing best-of-three "hide and sneak" in the local market - hiding an item in a shopper's cart for the other person to identify and steal. Murr drops a bag of flour into an elderly woman's cart and distracts her for Sal, but Sal has a really hard time g...

It's 'Grand Theft Shopping Cart' On Tonight's 'Impractical Jokers'

It's 'Grand Theft Shopping Cart' On Tonight's  'Impractical Joke
It's well known that the Impractical Jokers are a menace to grocery stores. They've eaten people's food, attached balloons to unsuspecting customers, and Santiago still wants his money back.

This Starpulse exclusive clip from tonight's episode, "Wrong Playwright," is no exception. Out on the floor, Q selects a random item off the shelves - one which will be easily recognizable to anyone who listens to the "What Say You?" podcast - and it's up to Joe to identify and swipe the item out of an innocent bystander's cart.

Meanwhile, behind the scenes, Sal and Murr are arguing about Murr, once a...

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'Uncool and the Gang' - Way Too Exposed

February 13th, 2015 10:09am EST
'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'Uncool and the Gang' - Way Too
In this week's episode of Impractical Jokers, we find out that Joe, Murr, Q and Sal should never teach anyone anything, one Joker has a very rare off night, and Murr should probably never stand next to Sal ever again. There's just as much going on behind the camera as there is in front of it in "Uncool and the Gang."

Challenge #1: Craporate Retreat
The guys are pairing up for team-building workshop presentations. It's Murr and Q versus Joe and Sal, who reminds us, "There's no Murr in team." The former two go first, slapping each other into oblivion before "donkey" Sal is forced to try and ...

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'Below The Belt' - The Sharp Obj
The Impractical Jokers have returned to New York after their trip to Miami, and it's back to business as usual for the guys from Staten Island. "Below the Belt" includes a guest appearance from an Olympian, but the bigger news is that Joe, Murr, Q and Sal are handling more sharp objects than they should ever be allowed to.

Challenge #1: Sword Losers
This one's a reach - the guys are playing fencing instructors, who have to convince their students to take another class while acting strangely (basically, the same thing they did with the infamous language lab challenge). Murr is the last pers...

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'Welcome To Miami' - Sun, Sand,
The Impractical Jokers are back for their fourth season, and kicking things off with only their second episode on the road. This week, they're in sunny Miami, Florida, where there's sun, sand and plenty of opportunities for them to humiliate themselves. Which they do. In grand, grand, grand fashion.

Challenge #1: Keeping It Wheel
Stuck in a remote-controlled mobility scooter, it's a game to see who gives up and who can hang ten. Sal freely admits this is one of his dreams in life, at least until the other guys make him steal a custodian's trash can. Q then hands over his bottle so Sal look...

Best TV Shows Of 2014
Last week, we brought you the Best TV Moments Of 2014. But what about the best TV shows - the ones that didn't have just one or two good moments, but that impressed us all year long? What was going to make up for the end of Breaking Bad or the absence of Strike Back?

Here now then, is our list of the Best TV Shows Of 2014. In alphabetical order, we present to you the eight small-screen series that were at the top of their class, that were appointment television in our book and the reasons that lists like these are made.

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'Brother-in-Loss' - Murr Marries
In the second of two new Impractical Jokers episodes this week, Sal, Joe, Q and Murr complicate job interviews, somebody drops their pants, and Murr commits the cardinal sin in the Book of Vulcano by once again involving Sal's sister in the anarchy. Not bad for a season finale.

Challenge #1: Help Unwanted
The Jokers are going into job interviews with resumes created by each other and lines being fed to them; their ultimate goal is to get the job, no matter how idiotic the other three guys make them look. Murr makes a Y2K reference and claims he spent three weeks in a "job simulator" at Goo...

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'Just Say No' - Enter The Kool-A
TruTV is giving us a bonus Impractical Jokers this week. They want to use the hit power of the show to help launch some of their new unscripted programs. We just want to laugh at extra Sal, Joe, Q and Murr. Everyone wins. Here's what happened in this additional but no less embarrassing Tuesday-night edition of Jokers.

Challenge #1: Deal With It
The guys are back at Foxwoods again, working as blackjack dealers (once they pry Joe off the slot machine). Mr. Gatto also bats leadoff in this challenge, talking about the joys of "warm fish salad" until the gag is beaten thoroughly to death and Sa...

This week's Impractical Jokers is all about food, as the guys work in a legendary eating establishment and follow that up with handing out dessert to strangers. One Joker bites off more than he can chew, however, and almost ends up inciting a riot as part of his disastrous punishment. Who took the fall? Read on to find out and see a few highlights from the mayhem.

Challenge #1: Deli Ache
Someone thought it would be a good idea to let the Jokers into the world-famous Katz's Deli. Murr gets a little too close to a mother and son who come in for lunch, before pretending to be confused by past...

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'A Legendary Fail' - Take Me Out
In this week's Impractical Jokers, Sal, Joe, Q and Murr have some stadium insecurities and get their attempted CSI on in the classroom. Needless to say, no one is going to pay these guys to keep the peace any time soon. But as if that's what they were trying to do.

Challenge #1: Foul Play
While posing as security team members at the local ballpark, the guys must say and do what they're told. This challenge is one of the most out of control in a while. Sal is tasked with interrogating a kid and gossiping with an elderly woman, but trips up when the guys give him a line about bringing "bombs...

In this week's installment of Impractical Jokers, the guys crash everyone else's pool partying and ruin a few days with some nasty emails. Maybe they just all woke up on the wrong side of the bed this week. Whatever the reason, their cantankerous capers land one of them in trouble with some irate senior citizens.

Challenge #1: Pool Sharks
The guys have embarrassing tasks assigned to them at the pool of the Foxwoods Resort, starting with Joe, who has to cannonball into a hot tub full of ladies. "He needs a level of accuracy I don't know that he has," Sal comments, as faux-theme from Jaws pl...

On this week's episode of Impractical Jokers, Murr gets completely destroyed by a guy who doesn't even work here and Q finds out that he's lost his touch with the famous balloon game. Oh, and the punishment is permanent - not like the guys haven't come close to that already with forcing Murr to get his nipples pierced. Who suffers irreversible harm? Read on to find out.

Challenge #1: Avant Guards
The guys are the worst pharmacy security guards ever. Sal's turn starts with Q calling Murr a certain expletive because he's hogging the table behind the scenes. Then he's correcting people's post...

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'In Poor Taste Buds' - Murr Goes
It's time for more unnecessary embarrassment with the return of Impractical Jokers. In this week's episode, Sal, Joe, Q and Murr once again prove that they are not athletes in any way, shape or form, and then break out an old challenge that last left Sal squirting a stranger with a water gun and Q slapping himself - literally. How are they going to fare this time? Not much better.

Challenge #1: Tennis Chumps
It's "do and say what you're told" time, this time while posing as tennis coaches in outfits that do not flatter any of the four Jokers whatsoever. Sal has a very high-pitched grunt, a...

You love them on Impractical Jokers, now you can double up on the laughs with Jokers Wild. The Staten Island foursome known as The Tenderloins are bringing a second TV series to America, and we checked in last week with everyone's favorite guy who may or may not look like a ferret, James "Murr" Murray, to talk about the genesis of Jokers Wild and if it's harder to embarrass yourself in public when people know who you are.

How did Murr, Sal, Q and Joe get TruTV to give them a second show? "A year, year and a half ago the network came to us," Murr explained. "Jokers is doing well, it's a big...

Life Lessons From 'Impractical Jokers'

Life Lessons From 'Impractical Jokers'
We're one week away from all-new episodes of Impractical Jokers - and also from the premiere of the Jokers' new spin-off series, Jokers Wild, which showcases the gang's sketch comedy roots. While we're waiting for the new laughs, we thought it'd be a good idea to once again take a look back at everything we've enjoyed so far.

Having already discussed the Things Impractical Jokers Has Ruined For Us, here's our list of what we've taken away from Sal, Joe, Murr and Q - we call it Life Lessons From Impractical Jokers. Add your own to the list in the comments, and then be sure to tune in when J...

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'Up Losers Creek' - The Fall Of Sal Vulcano

August 15th, 2014 10:04am EDT
Impractical Jokers
On this week's episode of Impractical Jokers, the guys tackle one of the world's most hated professions, a lot of drugs are going around, and one of the guys manages to fail out of the entire episode. Why can't Sal get himself together? Who manages to escape the loser board entirely? It's another vastly inappropriate installment of the funniest show on TV.

Challenge #1: Phoning It In
The Jokers have split into teams for this telemarketing presentation, with Murr and Q facing off against Joe and Sal. ("I wish I could hang up on him in real life," Joe says of the ferret.) Of course, the slid...

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'The Lost Boy' - Q Gets Wrestled
The good news is that on this week's Impractical Jokers, no one is wearing a dress. The bad news is that you have to look at a "skulking" photo of James Murray. And apparently, some poor guy named Phil was framed for forgery and is now doing hard time in prison. Ouch.

Challenge #1: Business Tools
The guys are going networking, while having to say and do whatever they're told. Q at least has something to work with, since Quinndustries has a long history as a fake company. He gets off fairly easy, considering all he has to do is an overabundance of pointing. Joe's situation looks a lot worse...

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'Fe-Mail' - Joker In Drag
Last week, Impractical Jokers got a little painful when Murr lost a tooth - and then lost the entire show because of it. How could the guys possibly top that? Well, here's some tasteful partial nudity and one of them in a dress.

Challenge #1: Massagynists
It's spa day for the Jokers! It's not relaxing for their massage therapists, though, as they have to do and say what they're told during their appointments. Murr is forced to admit that he beat up an entire family (including the dog) and breaks out his patented psuedo-death glare. Sal has apparently never been in a massage parlor in his l...

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: Calling To Curse Out Aerosmith
Last week, Impractical Jokers brought us Joey Fatone as a stand-in for Brian Quinn and Sal crashing a wedding reception. What could possibly top that? There's Batman and Murr apparently really dislikes Aerosmith, plus Q humiliates himself in front of children. There are only two challenges this week, but they're pretty classic.

Challenge #1: Singles Night
"If you refuse anything you're told," Sal warns, "you lose and you die alone." Well, that's encouraging. At this mixer, Sal meets a guy named Larry and informs him that Joe has been looking for him. Not to be outdone, Q meets Irene (thoug...

We took a week away from Impractical Jokers to find our way out of that haunted corn maze, but we're back now to provide commentary on the guys' most recent shenanigans. This week, we're shocked to discover that at least one of the guys isn't a professional athlete. Shocked.

Challenge #1: Aisle Be Damned
The guys are back at the supermarket, this time as shoppers. Joe must pretend to surveil anyone who walks by, but takes a loss rather than talk about his mini cucumbers. Sal finds himself hijacking other people's carts. Q runs into his supervillain arch-nemesis, then decides to help himsel...

Joe Gatto
In this week's episode of Impractical Jokers, one Joker finds himself testing the waters of professional magic, and everybody gets embarrassed at one point or another. But that's why we love this show.

Challenge #1: Face The Music
The guys are back at Sam Ash Music Stores, now acting as music teachers rather than floor employees. In this Double Down challenge, can they convince poor souls to sign up with them for lessons? Sal falls over yet again after hearing the horrifically hilarious song Joe plays for a bewildered woman (read her lips afterward). However, he gets his when the guys sadd...
