Minor reality TV celebrity beef alert: the cast of Jersey Shore is apparently NOT very happy with MTV’s attempt at reinvigorating their precious franchise and they’re not gonna take it!!
MTV desperately wants to repeat the success of its former beach bros franchise Jersey Shore, a show that changed everyone’s lives and introduced us to cultural acronyms we never knew we needed. So it’s partly our fault that Floribama Shore is happening.
On Tuesday night’s episode of the adult version of Wild & Crazy Kids—MTV’s The Challenge—a notoriously hotheaded competitor made racist remarks during a drunken tirade and the Earth continues to spin on its axis.
As expected, Taylor Swift is going hard with her good-girl-gone-bad slash Madonna-phase narrative in the video for her redemption song “Look What You Made Me Do,” which premiered during Sunday night’s MTV VMAs, hosted by Katy Perry.
What would you do with your time if you’d been massively famous in the 1990s? You could certainly do worse than to spend your summer posting pics of the ocean and also clips from your tenure as host of MTV’s House of Style on Instagram, as Cindy Crawford has done.
Some four years after it began (thanks to some ridiculous argument over backup dancers), the feud between two of pop music’s biggest names may soon come to an end before a live studio audience.
Would a first date be improved if you took your clothes off before all the bullshit small talk? My mind and body are telling me “No, not really,” but MTV is telling me, “Yeah, it would, so watch our GODDAMN SHOW.”
The song of the summer, Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito,” wasn’t nominated for any MTV Video Music Awards this year. The network and the record label have conflicting explanations as to why.
On Siesta Key, MTV’s latest attempt at reviving its slice-of-life reality TV heyday, the cast is comprised of adults—new adults, sure, but fresh out of college and recently returned home to Siesta Key, a small barrier island in the Gulf Coast, ready to buckle to the pressure of having the best summer ever. What’s…
Carson Daly is now a suit-wearing anchor on the Today show and you haven’t spent a summer with the TV tuned to MTV since Dick Cheney seemed as bad as it could get, and yet they’re bringing back TRL, Total Request Live.
This season of MTV’s The Challenge is down to the final competition and Tuesday night’s episode saw a pair of contestants fail at basic math in the most tragic fashion. This team should win just for losing so badly.
The original My Super Sweet 16 aired from 2005-2008, and in the last ten years teens have really figured out what makes good content.
Another season of Catfish is on the way, with a teaser that makes you wonder yet again how this show and these people still exists.
In pop culture, retroism tends to run on a 20-year cycle—two decades after it happens, it’s ripe for return. Total Request Live hit MTV in September 1998 (and was preceded by MTV Live, which bowed in September 1997), which means it’s prime time to get in ahead of the nostalgia curve. The wise already have—there are…
In the opening scene of MTV’s new comedy Sweet/Vicious, a masked invader armed with a knife pins a twentysomething man to the floor of his bedroom. “Do you know this girl?” the masked figure, voice disguised, asks him. “Are you scared? Do you feel powerless? Do I have consent?” The man, frightened and bruised, agrees…
Somewhere between an embarrassment of riches and a straight-up embarrassment for all parties involved (including voracious viewers like myself) is the fact that three new MTV True Life episodes have aired this week. The most... eccentric of these offerings was Wednesday night’s True Life: I’m an Adult Baby, which…
On May 26, a shooting at a T.I. concert at New York’s Irving Plaza left one dead (bodyguard Ronald McPhatter) and three others injured. One of the victims, 26-year-old Jersey City resident Maggie Carrie Heckstall, told her story about the shooting and the resulting trauma she lives with on last night’s True Life: I’ve…
It’s been 18 years since the Emmy-winning documentary series True Life premiered on MTV, and in that time they’ve given their audience of teens and young adults a pathos-filled look into scores of lives and experiences they might not otherwise have been exposed to. Some stories are bleak (the show’s premiere episode…
Heroic G-Eazy kiss denier Britney Spears is reportedly so pissed off at MTV right now because she assumed she would be the “headliner” of the VMAs, and feels like second-tier (or worse!) compared to Rihanna and Beyonce.
