Remember the good ol' days of MTV's The Real World when there were compelling insights into young people from all walks of life, and some of the biggest problems the housemates had to deal with was peanut butter? Yeah, they've been killed for good. In fact, The Real World: Ex-plosion has blown them to smithereens.

Taking the original formula of The Real World (seven strangers picked to live in a house...) and mixes it with the booze-and-rage-soaked insanity of The Challenge. Then, for good measure, they throw in the housemates ex-boyfriends and girlfriends to all but ensure this new season -- the show's 29th -- will be nothing more than a tear-streaked, table-flipping scream-fest from a pack of annoying twenty-somethings. Puck doesn't seem so bad now, does he?

The Real World: Ex-plosion invades your television at 10 PM ET on MTV. If you're looking for something slightly more tame/sane, there's also the Season 5 winter premiere of The Middle on ABC at 8 PM ET, or the 40th Annual People's Choice Awards on CBS at 9 PM ET.
