''Jackass'' takes over MTV -- Johnny Knoxville reveals his plans for the 24 hours he'll have control of the network

''Jackass'' takes over MTV

Wee-Man is drunk and disorderly.
After the little daredevil has a few, ''he's not scared to urinate, punch, say hurtful things, or hit with foreign objects,'' says Knoxville. Confirms Tremaine: ''One time I was at a bar and my leg caught on fire, but luckily Wee-Man was there to pee the whole thing out.

Party Boy — who often wears only a thong and bow tie — gets physical.
''We thought it'd be natural for Chris Pontius, the sexiest man on the planet, to have his own workout show,''says Knoxville. ''Jack LaLanne, beware.''

Steve-O makes time to rhyme.
''Steve-O is convinced he's a good rapper,'' says Tremaine, and thanks to the foul lyrics, ''all it's gonna sound like on TV is a bunch of beeps.'' Adds Knoxville: ''I think his raps are hilarious — for all the wrong reasons.

The Box of Things That Suck is opened.
And inside will sit a cornucopia of rat traps, stun guns, and creepy bondage gear. ''Everything in that box sucks,'' explains Knoxville, ''and gets used on all of us.''

And finally...
''We'll probably have a bunch of MTV executives changing their names and leaving town,'' chuckles Tremaine.
