NEW YORK, June 21 -- USA Network announced today that it has ordered seven episodes of DR.

He travels around the country on a mission to "de-wussify" wimps, nerds and couch potatoes who have been nominated by their buddies, girlfriends, wives, mothers, coworkers or even have nominated themselves. Administering his brand of "extreme attitude adjustments," including shockingly hilarious stunts and embarrassingly funny and demented dares specifically tailored to each patient of the doctor on call, Steve-O will confront the guys, infiltrate their lives and shock them out of their shells.

"We are thrilled to be collaborating with USA Network in bringing back someone with such a sizable, existing fan base on cable," said Jonathan Murray, President, Bunim-Murray Productions. "Steve-O is certain to complement USA's innovative programming."
