Hosted by Rob Dyrdek, it's a night to remember as the entire casts come together to say farewell to the first cycle of these action packed series from Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory.

Beginning at 4:00PM (ET/PT) and airing throughout the night, MTV viewers will see their favorite cast members hanging out at the Fantasy Factory performing some of the most adrenaline packed stunts and nail biting tricks from Zip line bowling to tennis ball gunning to Bungee chord biking. Talent expected to appear and perform these wild antics include Johnny Knoxville, Jeff Tremaine (executive producers of "Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory" and "Nitro Circus,") Rob Dyrdek, Drama and Turbo from "Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory," "Bully Beatdown's" Mayhem and the cast of "Nitro Circus," Travis Pastrana, Street Bike Tommy, Andy Bell, Jolene Van Vugt, Erik Roner, and Jim DeChamp.

Additionally, Steve-O will be on hand to show viewers an exclusive clip of his upcoming documentary, "Steve-O: Demise and Rise." This explosive, self-documented special gives viewers a raw, intimate first-hand account of Steve-O's downward spiral to when he ultimately hits rock bottom and is saved by the intervention of friends and his own will to do whatever it takes to get - and stay - sober. "Steve-O: Demise and Rise" airs on Sunday, May 3rd at 10pm ET/PT.

MTV's "See You Sunday" block continues to deliver triple digit gains in its time period for males seeing a 31% increase among P12-34 viewers. Additionally, Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory, Bully Beatdown and Nitro Circus were all top-ten cable series among M12-34 in 1Q09.

The finale line-up includes:

ROB DYRDEK'S FANTASY FACTORY- 9:00PM ET/PT

After successfully taking over a 25,000 square foot industrial complex turned and turning into funhouse and the nucleus of Rob's skateboard empire, known as Dyrdek Enterprises, Rob, Drama and the rest of Corpo are ready for one last Fantasy. Rob holds a skate contest at the Fantasy Factory with fellow pro skaters Ryan Sheckler, Paul Rodriguez, Eric Koston and others. Prizes include a beaten up dancing gorilla, an early eighties moped, and a 1986 mint-condition Fiero. Rob gets a chance to drag race his newly beefed up 1969 Camaro against Sheckler's new Ferrari, and teases Chanel relentlessly about her alleged crush on Ryan.

BULLY BEATDOWN - 9:30PM ET/PT

Pro MMA fighter Jason "Mayhem" Miller comes to the rescue of those who have been bullied. Mayhem challenges Bullies to stop picking on the small and the weak and to get in the ring with someone their own size - a professional MMA fighter - or look like a coward. For this final round, Mayhem calls up fighter Thomas "Wildman" to challenge neighborhood menace Dennis. Dennis is a beefed-up bully who has been punking Stan and Andrey for years, leaving them bruised, scarred, and scared. But Dennis is no push over, even for the Wildman, as viewers will see in the most contested fight of the season.

NITRO CIRCUS- 10:00PM ET/PT

Travis Pastrana, nine-time X Games Gold Medalist, has built an empire doing things previously thought impossible and always unadvisable. Whether it's jumping out of an airplane without a parachute or being the first person ever to double black flip a motorcycle, Pastrana does not stop. Joining him in the Nitro cast are his equally insane and entertaining buddies: childhood friend and professional mountain biker Jim DeChamp, charismatic loud-mouth nemesis Andy Bell, skier/base jumper Erik Roner, professional female motocross racer Jolene Van Vugt, and husky and hysterical former sheet-rocker Streetbike Tommy. For their final hoorah, the crew head to Jamaica, where they join forces with members of the Jamaican Olympic bobsled team for some cool runnings, Nitro-style. Streetbike Tommy gets an opportunity to show the Jamaican Ruff Ryders just how he got the name "Streetbike." And to top off the island adventure, the cast come face to face with a Jamaican ramp beast that sits atop a forty-foot cliff above the Caribbean.
