After many long months of teasing the series (and even announcing its renewal for a second season), MTV has finally released a trailer for its upcoming Jersey Shore reboot, Family Vacation. Based on the 98-second clip, it’s going to be a lot like the original Jersey Shore, only this time they’re in Miami, everyone’s…
Reinventing the dating show so that it hits the right notes of watchable, messy, and entertaining TV is a big ask. Yet many networks try anyway. This time, it’s MTV.
MTV’s second attempt at reanimating the corpse of TRL has failed.
On Tuesday night’s episode of The Challenge, MTV issued a PSA about the dangers of bullying after a group of contestants—designated “mean girls”—rallied against another.
“This’ll be fun, we can talk a lot of smack,” SallyAnn Salsano, self-identified Guidette said at the start of our rollicking conversation about her reality show empire that includes Jersey Shore and the forthcoming and insanely entertaining (sorry!) Winter Break: Hunter Mountain. I am happy to report that she was…
Something truly disgusting about me is how much I love the first two seasons of Jersey Shore. The later ones, with their inexplicable focus on Ronnay/Sammay’s relationship (not to mention that disastrous trip to Italy that somehow didn’t prompt the country to ban all visitors from the United States) lost some of the…
Something tells me that the specific magic that happens when you throw a bunch of young adults in a beach house for a summer and film their shenanigans won’t quite translate to the colder months, but I’m still game to give it a go!
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.
