by Chris Harnick, posted Mar 23rd 2011 5:45PM
Real WorldGet ready for more partying 20-somethings on MTV. The network has renewed 'Real World' for not one but two more seasons.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, MTV is currently casting season 26 and gave a green light to seasons 27 and 28. Season 25, set in Las Vegas, is currently airing on MTV.

Although in many minds 'Jersey Shore' has taken 'Real World''s place in the pop culture landscape, the latest 'Real World' has brought in around 2 million viewers. They're not 'Jersey Shore'-level numbers, but still OK for an MTV series.

I won't miss Jersey Shore

by Allison Waldman, posted Jan 22nd 2010 6:05PM
jersey_shore_mtvLast night was the wrap up for Jersey Shore. I have to tell you, I won't miss it. Unlike many others who were drawn in to Jersey Shore, the show never grew on me. The MTV reality show got an inordinate amount of media coverage. It became the butt of jokes all over the place, the perfect gag line. It was controversial and insulting to the actual people who love and live on the Jersey Shore.

But the show is horrible. Truly, deeply and utterly horrible. I watched it to see what the fuss was all about, but after ten minutes, I had had enough. It wasn't funny or goofy or even car-wreck compelling. It was just dumb. Even with the subtitles, I could barely understand them.

by Audrey Fine, posted Jan 22nd 2010 10:20AM
Bad Girls ClubMourning the season's end of 'Jersey Shore'? Well, don't despair too much, because there's always Oxygen's 'Bad Girls Club' to help you get your fix of, well, you know.

In fact, this 4th season of 'Bad Girls Club' has been so salaciously addictive that it's drawn record numbers to the women's network. prompting an order for a 5th season that will find the women outside of Los Angeles for the first time and poised to wreak havoc on Miami (in other words: watch out, Kourtney and Khloe).

The executive producers, Bunim-Murray, the braintrusts behind such seminal shows as 'The Real World' and 'Road Rules,' couldn't be happier. "Every time [we have] taken a series to Miami, we've been embraced by the city and its people and had huge ratings, so we're excited about bringing yet another series to the city," said Jon Murray in a statement, according to Variety.

2009's Trashy Reality Report Card

The girls of Real/Chance of Love
While there are reality shows like The Amazing Race, Survivor, or even Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List garnering praise and Emmys for their quality level or American Idol, America's Next Top Model, or So You Think You Can Dance giving real people with potential to fulfill their dreams, trashy reality shows appear like the black sheep of the family. They are loud, brash, and sleazy. Like a car crash, you can't help but turn and look.

For reality television, 2009 has provided some of the biggest reasons why reality television gets a bad reputation. Four cable channels have become festering points for Trashy Reality in 2009: VH1, E!, MTV, and WE.

Reality Show Fights: The Best Punches, Slaps and Spits (VIDEO)

by Chris O'Connell, posted Dec 17th 2009 12:08PM
Jersey ShoreIf you've been watching 'Jersey Shore' -- and if you know what's good for you, you have -- you may have heard about petite guidette Snooki's getting clocked in the face by a mystery male assailant. (The promo was everywhere for a while, but was pulled after MTV edited the punch out of the episode, which airs tonight.)

The idea of the punch (and the sight of it, for those of us who've watched it) is alarming for a few reasons. First and foremost, the image of a man hitting a woman squarely in the face is shocking; most reality show fights that escalate to physical violence are between two men or two women. Furthermore, these reality show fights rarely involve actual punches; normally it's a bunch of hugging disguised as grappling, rolling around on the ground and hair-pulling until the producers move in. This is the real deal.

But if you've ever been to Seaside, NJ, you aren't surprised by this use of unnecessary violence over what was probably an argument about a slice of boardwalk pizza or a discussion of Yankees vs. Mets. Also, if you've seen a reality show in the past five years, you aren't surprised that someone caught a bad one. We've compiled the best punches/slaps/etc. of the last few years in the wonderful world of reality television.
