The World Series of Pop Culture is a VH1 game show tournament program. The second season was taped in New York City from March 22–23, 2007 at the Grand Ballroom at Manhattan Center. The top prize was $250,000 provided by Alltel Wireless. The tournament began airing on July 9, 2007, with a "soft", unadvertised premiere July 8. VH1 made the premiere episode available via the On Demand service of many cable systems starting July 2, 2007. Pat Kiernan returned to host the second season. Post-game interviews were handled by Erin Davidson, Katherine Gotsick, and Amber Tillett from season 1 team Cheetara.

The tournament was won by NYU students Victor Lee, Andrew Unterberger, and Andrew Weber, collectively known as the Twistëd Misters. They split the $250,000 cash prize, and won an entry for a possible 2008 tournament, although the show has since been discontinued. Victor Lee, however, would go on to compete on GSN's Grand Slam, which aired just weeks after the World Series finale in the summer of 2007, where he would lose in the first round of the tournament.
