The renewal, announced Thursday night at San Diego Comic-Con, follows the series’ Season 5 premiere on July 14 which ranked as the No. 1 series in its time slot in live+3 among adults 18-34, adults 18-49, men 18-34, and men 18-49, according to Nielsen. Impractical Jokers also has a social footprint of more than 3.6 million followers and 163 million total impressions in the first half of 2016.
The Impractical Jokers group, Staten Island natives Joe, Murr, Q and Sal, push each other to the limit with over-the-top antics in each episode. Ever since high school, the four friends have dared one another to do ridiculous things in public. Now all grown up, they are capturing their extreme mischief on hidden camera, complete with unsuspecting strangers’ amused, confused, or flabbergasted reactions.
