Midseason TV Preview: MTV Premiere Schedule and Trailers
"Jersey Shore" has an odd season schedule, but at least it makes mid-season a little more exciting, doesn't it?
"Shore" is just one of a pair of reality shows premiering mid-season for MTV, and both of them are accompanied by a brand-new scripted comedy. With the relative success of shows like "My Life As Liz" and "Awkward," it seems that MTV is continuing its foray into the scripted teen comedy realm, in addition to pursuing the usual reality fare.
"I Just Want My Pants Back" - Thursday, Feb. 2nd at 11pm
MTV's only new show of the mid-season is this one, which focuses more on young adult life than teen affairs, as with most of MTV's other shows. It's a good thing, too, as "I Just Want My Pants Back" focuses a lot on the hookup culture, and we all saw what happened to "Skins," which focused on teen hookups. Making the show about adults (albeit those in their early 20's) is a good move to try to keep this one on the air.
"Teen Mom 2" - Tuesday, Dec. 6th at 10pm
Here's a fun game: watch the new season of "Teen Mom," then check the news to see if any of them have been arrested since then. It just adds an extra level to this already entertaining-in-an-awful-way show.
"Jersey Shore" - Thursday, Jan. 5th at 10pm
Yeeeeaaahhhhhh buddy! "Jersey Shore" is back for season five, and the gang is out of Italy and back in Seaside where, quite frankly, they belong. This season promises some extra drama as the cast starts off a little fed up with each other, since the taping of this season almost immediately followed the taping of season four.
