Blue Mountain State is a comedy show that airs on Spike. This article will provide information pertaining to the show's run. This article will also discuss the setting and characters present throughout the series. Blue Mountain State first aired on January 11, 2010. The show's final new episode aired on November 30, 2011. Between January 2010 and November 2011 Blue Mountain State consisted of three seasons for a total of 39 episodes. Spike and Lionsgate Television announced the cancellation of the series on February 20, 2012.

The majority of the series takes place in an American university, Blue Mountain State, which is fictional. The most common settings within that university are the football field, locker room, and the Goat House. The Goat House is a house where the members of the football team, the Mountain Goats, live and throw their parties. It is at the Goat House where most of the partying, drinking, and drug use that are such a big part of the series take place.

Although the series follows many different characters, most of the screen time focuses on the characters of Alex Moran and Sammy Cacciatore. Alex and Sammy are lifelong friends. Alex is portrayed as a slacker who plays football as a way to enjoy his college life. At first Alex has no desire to make a career in football, but he does eventually start taking the game seriously and decides that he wants to work toward an NFL career. Sammy ends up spending most of his time as Alex's roommate and team mascot. Another major character is Thad Castle, who is a linebacker for the Mountain Goats, and team captain for most of the series. The character of Marty Daniels is also a common sight throughout the series. Marty Daniels is the coach of the Mountain Goats and is famous for winning six national football championships.

In conclusion, Blue Mountain State was a three-season long comedy show that marked Spike's first foray into scripted television. While the show did enjoy an increase in ratings between seasons, it was not received very well by critics. In the end, the ratings growth was not enough to save the show, and it was cancelled in early 2012.
