'Guy Code' Preview: Is Buying a Bottle Baller or Boneheaded? (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Nov 15th 2011 2:00PM
Lately, an entire cottage industry has sprung up to teach men how to be as dudely as possible. Somewhere along the line, modern masculinity was declared to be in shambles, and thus were born dozens of guidebooks and classes teaching the basic principles of coolness.

By now, many men have chosen to tune out the guidance being offered by everyone from self-proclaimed "pick-up artists" to Axe Body Spray, but it's worth tossing your skepticism aside to welcome a new show called 'Guy Code' (premieres Tues., Nov. 15 at 11PM ET on MTV2). This genuinely funny show offers dude-vice on topics like manscaping, sexting, talking to the cops and partying at the club ... you know, the fundamental issues of our time. Using animated scenes and commentary from comedians, shot-girls and Vinnie from 'Jersey Shore,' 'Guy Code' avoids preaching and goes for laughs rather than promising to change your life.

MTV's playing videos again, but not that many

by Jason Hughes, posted May 3rd 2009 1:18PM
AMTVAs a child of the '80s, I remember when MTV was just music videos 24 hours a day. We had veejays to love and the different "shows" were just ways to package genres of videos. Times were good and MTV spurred album sales as we discovered music we loved. But all that went away for a long time. But recently, MTV made a big deal about bringing back music videos. Sure it's on at like three and four in the morning, but that's what DVRs are for.

So I record AMTV and AMTV2 (MTV2 got into it as well) for a few weeks and it's even worse than my local pop station. Eminem's "We Made You" was played every single hour on the hour for four hour straight. It was almost as bad for Britney Spears' "If U Seek Amy" and "Poker Face" by Lady GaGa Okay, I get that. New videos and the like. But then they showed me something called a "Video Flashbacks" and I got excited. 30 years of videos to choose from, alright! How can this not be awesome? I can put up with new video repeats for glimpses of videos past!

Andy Milonakis has a serious problem - VIDEO

by Adam Finley, posted Jul 7th 2007 8:35AM

andy milonakisI'm not always floored by what springs from the mind of Andy Milonakis, who, according to TMZ, recently gave a homeless guy a buck, but I like that he does his own thing and stays true to himself.

Before I joined the TV Squadders and before he had his show on MTV2 (The Andy Milonakis Show), I did a phone interview with the youthful-looking Milonakis (he's 31 now) about the Web videos he had been making that had caught the eye of Jimmy Kimmel and led to his deal at MTV. Back then, his humor didn't always hit, but when it did, I found it hilarious. And, even when it landed with a thud, I had to admire him for trying something different. Also, Andy and I are the same age and both seem to have a penchant for the absurd, so I was pretty much tuned in to his wavelength from the beginning.

Watch Human Giant if you want Human Giant to live

human giantSo I told you that on May 18 Human Giant would be taking the reins of MTV and MTV2 for 24 hours starting at noon on May 18.

A rather amusing press release has it that MTV will give the series --which features actors Paul Scheer, Aziz Ansari and Rob Huebel-- a second season if they get one million hits on their MTV site. A snippet from the release:

Andy returns, and he's funnier

by Adam Finley, posted Mar 29th 2007 9:02AM

andy milonakisI've said before I'm kind of an intermittent fan of the Andy Milonakis Show, but after seeing the season three premiere in which Andy first arrives in Los Angeles, I have to say that the show has improved greatly. If you hated Andy before, you'll probably still hate him, since his brand of humor isn't for everyone, but I was pleasantly surprised at how much more fully realized the show now seems. The first season had some very funny moments, but it seemed to lack focus, as if it wasn't sure what it was trying to be. I think both Andy and his show have finally found themselves, and Milonakis may have figured out a way to turn his penchant for oddball non sequiturs and general nonsense into real, honest to goodness comedy. Our little weirdo has finally become a butterfly, with peanut butter on his hands ("peanut butter slap")!

The six season three episodes are available on iTunes and will also be made available on MTV2.com and MTV.com.

Wonder Showzen's collectible lunchbox

by Julia Ward, posted Nov 6th 2006 10:06AM
Wonder ShowzenJust in time for the holidays - it's the Wonder Showzen collectible lunchbox!

Wonder Showzen is MTV2's deliciously adult take on mid-70s children's programming like Sesame Street and The Electric Company. Mean-spirited puppets, befuddled children and subversive guest star appearances by the likes of Amy Sedaris and David Cross abound.

The lunchbox gift set will hit shelves on December 12th. The set contains Seasons 1 and 2 of MTV2's cult hit, which means no new content, but hey, cool lunchbox.

A third season of Wonder Showzen is unlikely

by Adam Finley, posted Oct 18th 2006 11:01AM

Wonder ShowzenIt is indeed a sad day, fellow fans of Wonder Showzen. In an interview with Radar, show creators Vernon Chatman and John Lee have said that MTV2 has still given no official word on whether their subversive, blood-soaked, drug-addled tribute to children's shows will return for a third season. Currently, Lee says the answer is about "ninety percent 'no'" as to whether or not the show will return.

As is the case with most shows that includes kids dressed up as a dead Pope, dozens of scenes segmented on the screen and played simultaneously, a dog pulling a baby from a pregnant woman's womb while she's being killed in an electric chair and puppets dry humping the Bible, Wonder Showzen had a devoted fanbase but never got the ratings that would make a network want to keep it around. It's not much consolation, but the second season does come out on DVD today, so you can always pop it into the ol' DVD player and remember the good times. Also, the brains at Adult Swim have expressed their love for Wonder Showzen, so maybe there's still a small glimmer of hope for the show after all. Keep the faith, brothers and sisters.

Andy Milonakis returns in 2007

by Adam Finley, posted Oct 2nd 2006 2:11PM
andy milonakisOkay, MTV2, you've decided to bring back The Andy Milonakis Show for a third season. That just leaves me with one question: are you also going to bring back Wonder Showzen? Because if you don't bring back Wonder Showzen, I will have no choice but to -- well, I guess I can't really do anything, but I'll be really, really sad and I may misdirect my anger and frustration and beat a squirrel with a tennis racket. Do you really want that on your conscience? Sorry, I'm getting off the subject, aren't I? Anyway, The Andy Milonakis Show is in fact returning with six new episodes in 2007. Fans should rejoice, and non-fans should, I don't know, go make themselves a sandwich or something. I'm kind of a non-committal, intermittent fan of the show. Out of all the shows on television, this is probably the one I'm the most wishy-washy about.

MTV2 cartoon attacked for racial insensitivity

by Adam Finley, posted Aug 9th 2006 6:04PM
where my dogs atComedians Tracy Morgan and Jeffrey Ross' MTV2 cartoon Where My Dogs At? has come under fire from some prominent blacks for the depiction of two black women on leashes, one of which defecates on the floor. The episode, which originally aired on July 1, was meant to spoof an actually occurrence when Snoop Dogg showed up at an event with two women wearing collars and chains. Viacom chairman Christina Norman, a black woman, defended the scene as a parody of a specific event, but New York Daily News columnist Stanley Crouch, who is also black, denounced the episode as perpetuating a negative stereotype about black people that has been prevalent on MTV for many years. I haven't watched this show at all, but if anyone saw the episode I'd be interested to read your opinion.

Thanks to Mack Swift for the info.

MTV2 picks up Crank Yankers

by Anna Johns, posted Jul 14th 2006 9:44PM
crank yankersThe prank-calling puppets of Crank Yankers are coming to MTV2. The show originally premiered on Comedy Central in 2002 and is produced by Jimmy Kimmel and Adam Carolla. Regulars include Wanda Sykes, Jim Florentine, Dane Cook, Sarah Silverman, and Tracy Morgan. One of the producers of the show has a great quote, he says, "With all the trouble in the world, it's comforting to know that MTV2 understands how vital crank phone calls made by puppets are to this nation."

I admit to watching this show occasionally but I honestly didn't notice that it was off the air. Is this good news to anybody?

When is Celebrity Deathmatch returning again?

by Adam Finley, posted May 15th 2006 1:01PM

celebrity deathmatchLast month I mentioned that MTV2 was planning on bringing Celebrity Deathmatch back. Now, if you can find any information on this, especially on either the MTV or MTV2 site, than you're a better man/woman than I. The only thing I have found is this clip from Perez Hilton of Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton in clay form beating the stuffing out of one another with text below stating that the show is returning on June 10.

Oop, hang on there, Missy. The Futon Critic has the first episode listed as airing on June 9, not 10. Apparently, someone is lying to us.

Wonder Showzen: Justice

by Adam Finley, posted Apr 22nd 2006 12:26PM

wonder showzen(S02E04) Last night's episode mostly took place in the 18th century, with Chauncey taking on the role of the master of a plantation and his fellow puppets all serving as his slaves. Things start to get out of hand, however, when Him becomes a cyborg slave, able to bale hay, whitewash a barn, and whip other slaves with greater efficiency. Chauncey loves his new robotic slave, but when his young Southern bride puts the moves on Him, the new robo-slave is charged with rape. In a hilarious court room sequence, Sthugar, the young bride, blatantly admits she was lying about the rape, but they continue with the trial anyway. This became the main part of the episode, and one of the funniest, most absurd takes on race relations in the United States I've ever seen. A monkey who evolves into itself with a hat made of licorice, Chauncey having sex with the Bible, and a visit from God in the form of a banana were just a few of the things that popped up during the hearing.

Milonakis' phat rhymes

by Adam Finley, posted Apr 19th 2006 9:59AM
andy milonakisThe Andy Milonakis Show is currently in its second season on MTV2,  but a lot of us knew about Andy before he was on television, when he used to create little skits on his Web cam and ad lib his own rap songs over on the Angry Naked Pat site. When I spoke to Andy a few years ago he said he was interested in making an album of comedy rap songs, and it looks like the first song has been "leaked" (but not really) and you can hear it by clicking here. It's called "Me No Like Hollywood Douche Bags," and Andy uses the song to state with great clarity his dislike of douche bags from Hollywood. I assume douche bags from Sacramento are okay, though. The song is mildly amusing until he seems to run out of ideas and just starts saying "suck my ***k" a lot. I think this could be turned into a funny video, but as an audio file only it's a bit of a let down, even if I do agree with the sentiment.
