I respect MTV's attempts at scripted (or, in some cases, scripted-ish) programming. Once you get over the dated "I thought this was music television" argument, it's obvious that MTV has the hard-to-reach ultra-loyal audience that most networks are seriously lacking and is capable of producing good content. In the past year alone, Teen Wolf and more so Awkward. have become two of our favorite shows and not necessarily just the teen-oriented variety.

It's closing time at the Jersey shore.
Although its version of Skins may have been an epic botch, MTV hasn't given up trying to transform a hit UK teen show into a stateside success. Last night, the network unleashed The Inbetweeners, the Americanized version of the acclaimed and award-winning British comedy about a quartet of sex-obsessed teen boys dealing with the humiliations of high school life. The original series ran for three seasons on the E4 network and spawned a 2011 movie that became a big worldwide hit (it opens here in two weeks).

While we weren't crazy about the Awkward pilot back when it premiered last summer, over the course of the first season we became smitten with MTV's little teen sitcom. If last night's Season 2 debut is any indication, it's safe to say that Jenna Hamilton won't drag us into a sophomore slump, despite the fact that she's online official with Jake. Here's why we're looking forward to following all the dramz:
I don't know if you've been watching this season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but something really interesting has been happening: The entire cast acknowledges that they're on a reality show and are now regularly featured in tabloids. They argue about how some of them are media (prostitution) whores and gossip about how much they've changed now that they're in the spotlight. It's really great television and I still don't understand why MTV hasn't done the same with Jersey Shore.
I am legitimately bummed that this is the final season of Teen Mom with Amber, Farrah, Maci and Catelynn. Much as I have come around to enjoy the ladies of Teen Mom 2, last night's two-hour premiere was a cold hard reminder that we've only got so much time left with our O.G.s. Here are the premiere's highlights:
SNL is officially down one player.
