truTV's IMPRACTICAL JOKERS Season Finale to Salute to America's Military Members
truTV's hit series IMPRACTICAL JOKERS is celebrating Veterans Day and the armed forces in the season six finale episode IMPRACTICAL JOKERS Presents G.I. Jokers. The finale is set to be taped in front of an audience filled with both veteran and active members of the armed forces, along with their families. The Jokers, otherwise known as Joe Gatto, James "Murr" Murray, Brian "Q" Quinn and Sal Vulcano, will compete in a series of military-themed challenges, ending the season with two separate power-packed punishments for the Jokers who are designated the evening's big losers. The special will be taped at The Museum of American Armor on Long Island.
Airing on Thursday, November 2, the two-hour special event kicks off at 9:00pm ET/PT with a half-hour pre-show hosted by Joey Fatone, which will take a look back at some of season six's biggest challenges and punishments. At 9:30pm ET/PT, the hour-long IMPRACTICAL JOKERS Presents G.I. Jokers finale kicks into high gear and at 10:30pm ET/PT, a special episode of IMPRACTICAL JOKERS After Party will break down the events of the finale with the guys reflecting on the whole season.
Along with their usual dares and pranks, the Jokers are partnering with the Wounded Warrior Project(R) to bring laughter and some hilarious hijinks to injured servicemen and women. In addition to the Jokers meeting with these brave heroes, truTV will be making a charitable donation to the organization on-site.
Impractical Jokers features four comedians and lifelong friends who compete to embarrass each other out amongst the general public with a series of hilarious and outrageous dares. When Sal, Joe, Q, and Murr - collectively known as the popular comedy troupe The Tenderloins - challenge each other to say or do something, they have to do it. And if they refuse, they lose. At the end of every episode, THE BIGGEST LOSER must endure a punishment of epic proportions. Since its season six mid-season premiere on July 13, IMPRACTICAL JOKERS is ranking #1 in its timeslot among Adults, Men and Women 18-49 and 18-34. The series is averaging 1.9 million total viewers per week in live+7 data.
The finale comes on the heels on last season's finale, The IMPRACTICAL JOKERS Live: NITRO CIRCUS Punishment Spectacular, which featured the guys competing against one another in a grueling obstacle course with the help of the daring MOTOCROSS riders from Nitro Circus. The live special brought in 1.2 million viewers overnight and was trending across social media platforms with more than 188 million combined impressions. In 2015, the series celebrated its 100th episode with The IMPRACTICAL JOKERS Live Punishment Special, with a daring highwire walk over New York's South Street Seaport, which resulted in 3.7 million total viewers in Live +3 delivery for the premiere and same-day encore tuning in to see which Joker would walk the farthest.
