MTV IS MOVING COPS EARLIER AND ZOMBIES LATER ON MONDAY NIGHTS, STARTING OCTOBER 17

Rob Dyrdek's "Ridiculousness" Still Kicks Off the Night at 10:00 p.m., Now Followed by "Cuff'd" at 10:30 p.m., and "Death Valley" at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT

New York, NY (October 12, 2011) - MTV today announced a new Monday night line-up, starting Monday, October 17, with all new episodes of "Ridiculousness" at 10:00 p.m., followed by "Cuff'd," in its new 10:30 p.m. time slot, and rounding out the night, scripted horror-comedy "Death Valley," also at a new time, 11:00 p.m. ET/PT.

"Ridiculousness" comes from the producers of "Jackass" and "Fantasy Factory," and features Rob Dyrdek's unique take on some of today's funniest amateur viral videos and builds them into episodes of edgy, funny and timeless television. Each episode highlights Rob's unique style and infectious energy as he breaks down amusing web clips by putting them in segments such as "Redneck Good Times," "Worst Case Scenario," "Ridiculousness in Training," "Pogo Stuck," "Hot Mess," "What Happened Last Night," and many more. Featuring commentary from co-hosts Sterling "Steelo" Brim, Chanel "West Coast" (the rapping receptionist from "Fantasy Factory") and complete with a studio audience, the series also includes appearances by some of Rob's closest friends.

"Ridiculousness" is executive produced by Rob Dyrdek, Jeff Tremaine, Shane Nickerson and Christian Duguay. The show is produced by Dickhouse. Lauren Dolgen, Michelle Klepper and Kristina Edwards are the MTV executives in charge.

"Cuff'd" is the half-hour documentary series that provides viewers with a fly-on-the-wall perspective of what happens on the ride to the precinct after young offenders are arrested. Serving as a cautionary tale, "Cuff'd" takes viewers front and center as these young people begin to process the consequences of their actions. Each episode features approximately six different young perpetrators from distinct regions of the country engaging with their arresting officers as they ride in police cruisers on the way to central booking. These interactions are both revealing and intense, as youth offenders open up about their lives and process the mistakes that have brought them to this critical point - while police officers offer advice and guidance. Although most of the suspects featured are first-time offenders - the uncertainty of their predicaments often creates deeply emotional, dramatic, and humorous responses that serve as windows into the lives of young people who have veered off-course.

Michael Schenker and Rob Dorfmann serve as executive producers for Down In Front Entertainment. "Cuff'd" is executive produced by Dave Sirulnick, Marshall Eisen, George McTeague and Nomi Leidner for MTV. The executive in charge of production for the network is Jonathan Mussman.

MTV's horror-comedy "Death Valley" is a scripted series that follows the 'Undead Task Force' (UTF), a newly formed division of the LAPD, documentary-style, as they capture the monsters that roam the streets of California's San Fernando Valley. In a world where vampires, werewolves and zombies live freely, "Death Valley" is a fun, comedic non-stop thrill ride featuring chases, hardcore kills and bizarre encounters.

The series stars Tania Raymonde ("Lost'), Bryan Callen ("The Hangover"), Caity Lotz ("Mad Men"), Bryce Johnson ("Sleeping Dogs Lie"), Texas Battle ("Final Destination 3"," Dragonball," "Coach Carter") and Charlie Sanders (Funny or Die's "The Big Dog.)

"Death Valley" is executive produced by Eric Weinberg (Californication, Scrubs), Austin Reading (Spike TV's Scream Awards, FEARnet), Julie Kellman Reading and Tim Healy. Spider One is co-executive producer. Tony DiBari is executive producer for MTV, and Matthew Parillo is the MTV executive in charge of production
