If you so desire, you can now watch Bam Margera torture his family members on your iPod.

Apple said today that it has inked a deal with MTV to add Viva La Bam, the MTV show chronicling the skateboarder and former Jackass star's antics, to its iTunes download catalog of TV shows. The deal expands on an earlier deal that allows iTunes to sell MTV shows like Beavis & Butt-head, Jackass, and Punk'd.

iTunes has also added shows from MTV properties Spike TV, TV Land, Nick at Nite, The N, and Logo. Those shows include Spike TV's Blade: The Series, a new show based on the movie trilogy of the same name. iTunes is offering the two-hour premiere of the show for free through July 11.

The roster of shows added also includes TV Land's Sit Down Comedy with David Steinberg, Spike TV's TNA: iMPACT and Disorderly Conduct, Nick at Nite's Fatherhood and Hi-Jinks, Logo's Noah's Arc, U.S. of ANT, and Wisecrack, and The N's Beyond the Break.

"MTV Networks' programming has been a hit with customers since launching on iTunes earlier this year," Eddy Cue, Apple's vice president of iTunes, said in a statement.

Sticking with the iTunes standard for TV shows, each show costs $1.99 per episode. iTunes now offers more than 150 television shows for download. Apple said today that it has sold more than one million episodes of Comedy Central series South Park since launching the video service in late 2005.
