In a Completely New Ten-Hour Event, VH1 Takes You to the Third Dimension for 'I Love the 80s: 3D'

More Than 200 Music Artists, TV and Film Stars, Athletes and Celebs Give a Fresh Look Back at the Decade in VH1's Outrageous Year-By-Year Flashback Premiering Monday-Friday, October 24 - 28 at 9:00 PM* Each Night

NEW YORK, Oct. 17 -- We're back, we're funnier than ever, and because we haven't run out of ideas, we're taking it to the third dimension, with gnarly special effects that'll-like-blow your mind! That's right. Put on your 3D glasses and check out that chick's bangs, with "I Love the 80s: 3D!"

VH1 is reprising its highly successful and hilarious I Love the 80s approach for "I Love the 80s: 3D." All of your favorite comics, rock stars and celebs will come together once more to wax poetic about the essential '80s experience, and this time it will be a vision altering event. From Jheri- curls to Rat-tails, Oak Ridge Boys to Fine Young Cannibals, Star Search to Spenser for Hire, Cannonball Run to Naked Gun, the offbeat nostalgia show will bring viewers a skewed view of the music, movies, TV shows, fashions, fads, and trends that defined pop culture during every year of the decade. "I Love the 80s: 3D" premieres Monday-Friday, October 24 - 28, beginning at 9:00 pm each night.

Viewers can pick up their free 3D eyeglasses at Best Buy stores nationwide while supplies last beginning Saturday, October 22. Take a chill pill because even if you can't get the glasses you'll still have a bodacious time watching the series as a result of new 3D technology.

Each one-hour episode of "I Love the 80s: 3D" is a totally excellent adventure through a single year, celebrating the good, the bad, and the greedy through retro clips from sitcoms, movies, music videos, TV commercials, network news and other sources - plus more than 200 new interviews with the people who survived the decade that created "the fruit roll-up."

Mo Rocca ("The Daily Show"), Michael Ian Black ("Stella"), Hal Sparks ("Queer As Folk") and Rachael Harris ("Fat Actress") return to "I Love the 80s: 3D" to lend their hilarious point of view once again. Also lending their perspectives are Modern Humorists, Rich Eisen of the "NFL Network," Patrice O'Neal, Stuart Scott, Luis Guzman, Loni Love, Greg Fitzsimmons, Godfrey and others.

A variety of music artists, TV and film stars, athletes, journalists and other celebs come together to dish the decadent decade, including Fat Joe, Maroon 5, Paula Abdul, Rachel Leigh Cook, Tony Hawk, Doug E. Fresh, Biz Markie, Nicole Eggert, Marilu Henner, Debbie Matenopoulos, Jane Wiedlin, Brenda Strong, Darryl McDaniels, Rick Springfield, John Melendez, Molly Culver, Rocco DeSpirito, Angie Everhart, Willie Garson, Nelson, Sir Mix-A-Lot, Lance Bass, Countess Vaughn James, Common, Dee Snider, Graham Norton, Alyson Hannigan, Scott Ian, Melissa Rivers and more.

There are also interviews with such '80s survivors as Emmanuel Lewis, Chuck Woolery, Dom Deluise, Weird Al, Nadia Comaneci, Wil Wheaton, Alan Thicke, Gilbert Gottfried and more.
