It wouldn’t have made that much sense if BET Uncut came back since WorldStarHipHop. Still, people hoped that BET was really bringing back its R-rated video block. Those people who tuned in tonight at 11 p.m. for the “premiere” only got to see this:

Yep. BET’s Punk’d preview plus some of the show’s old moments. BET Uncut was actually a prank played by the network to promote something less misogynistic. Punk’d, not “Tip Drill 2,” will be making its return next Tuesday in attempt to revitalize interest in BET’s original programming.
Twitter wasn’t too sure how to feel about the publicity stunt prank.
Not sure if I’m mad that #BETUncut isn’t on, or happy that Punk’d is back!
