HOLLYWOOD — The punch wasn’t the only thing spiked during Tuesday night’s rechristening party for Viacom’s male cabler at the Playboy Mansion.

Pamela Anderson (“Stripperella”), Kelsey Grammer (“Gary the Rat”) and “WWE Raw” wrestler “Stone Cold” Steve Austin all turned out to promote their shows on Spike TV, as TNN is now known.

Anderson gave her thumbs up to the cabler’s male focus, adding, “I think women will watch too. It’s sexy.”

Event featured appearances by multihyphenate Ice-T and rapper Busta Rhymes, as well as a performance of Carmen Electra and Jaime Pressly‘s “Pussycat Dolls” burlesque show.

Revelers included Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst, former Laker John Salley, ‘N Sync’s Lance Bass and “That ’70s Show” thesps Danny Masterson and Wilmer Valderrama.
