Fameless – “Revenge Ink” – Wednesday, August 19, at 10:30 pm ET/PT

From the mischievous mind of David Spade comes Fameless – a genre-busting prank show that features an unsuspecting group of wannabe stars who think they have been cast on an actual reality show – and they have. Each week, our hilarious team of improv actors takes on a new challenge – from game show host to survival show contender to a home makeover expert – and creates sketches that parody the genre.  But there’s a twist…one of the contestants is real.  Half sketch show/half prank show this new comedy will take a light-hearted look at how far people will go to be famous. Guest stars this season include Michael Bolton, Gina Gershon, Ben Silverman, Brian Malarkey, Chris Hansen and Kat Von D.

In this week’s episode, a nature lover falls prey to a ferocious prank, a cocky host crumbles live on the air, and an aspiring rapper gets the shaft when guest star Kat Von D inks him with a shocking tattoo.
