    prior to this season there was a story about some networks including trutv wanting to reduce the commercial load per episode Apparently that was only for the first run. So IJ is left with extra minutes to fill that would have to not appear to on the reruns. This was their solution.

    I haven't compared the previous season show lengths without commercials to this season without commercials and without goofy guy to test this theory.

    I'm not bothered by it. I was bothered by it when I thought it was the start of the next half hour and my tivo was missing a 'talking dead' style full half hour show. Its not the worst.

    Your talking about the little thing at end of new shows, same guy now does the full half hour repeat shows with the pop up facts, and he does a stupid contest thing and other stuff. Looks like it is called - Impractical Jokers: Inside Jokes.

    Casey Jost is the person, and I too find him annoying. But he's been with the show since the beginning, so clearly he means something to them.

    Inside Jokes I like the pop-up facts. I just FF through the parts with Casey, as I find they add nothing.

    On a side note, apparently Sal is doing some side gigs here and there as a stand-up comic. I found that surprising. Of the 4, I thought he would be the worst as a stand-up performer. I've not seen his show, but I would be curious how it is. I did watch the one episode of Comedy Knockouts he was on, and I thought he was pretty terrible. I feel that stand up comedy and Improv are different, and take different skills. He's good at Improv.... not so much at the stand up (IMO).

    Totally agree. That guy is quite annoying.

    I've also noticed that people in the background that I previously thought were fans taking video/pics may just be part of the crew trying to blend in while getting video without being too obvious.

    last week wasn't the baby one - that was two weeks ago. But tonight's punishment was great. I haven't laughed that much during a punishment in a LONG TIME.

    People seem to like this show. I'd want to break these guys' faces.

    If you haven't picked it up there is another show Impractical Jokers : After Party, hosted by Joey Fatone and the jokers that has followed the past two episodes .
    Very funny and worth watching. I dont know that they are rebroadcasting it. Or maybe at the time TiVo wasn't labeling it correctly. I had to go watch on the trutv website, and it required having a cable system logon. was able to set up a season pass and record the episode this week.

    And if you haven't had enough there is an official podcast. Its hosted by Casey, but he's not the dialed up spaz people hate. (still mildly annoying though). Plenty of guests to keep him to a minimum. I'm not sure there is a bunch of content there, but it is somewhat amusing. this weeks episode had the book of mormon guy who stared in the punishment.

    They mentioned Murr wearing the Q wig but also made a "living under a rock" comment. I thought I've been keeping up with all the episodes but I must have missed something. Can you guys fill me in?

    I'm convinced they can't come up with a punishment that actually punishes Joe. He just seems to roll with whatever they throw at him.

    In the 8/3 episode -- The Q-Pay -- Murr's punishment was he has to wear wig made from Q's hair on the show, I guess for rest of this season.

    Watched this week was very good, where I found out Joe flipping upside down (one of the funniest moments) was a accident, didn't watch it last week I hope and assume will repeat them.

    Thanks. I thought I watched that episode but that doesn't ring a bell. I'll have to re-watch.

    He actually looks better in it, much younger.

    A gross bonus, when they are unveiling the wig on countdown at number two Murr does his famous spit when he talks.
