MTV Axes RJ Berger In Wake of Soft Numbers

Despite opening its second season strongly this past March, The Hard Times of R.J. Berger are now over.

MTV has canceled the high school-set series, which saw its Season 2 opener audience of 3.1 million total viewers shrink to less than a mil come its May finale, per The Hollywood Reporter.

Among the cabler’s other scripted fare (Jersey Shore not included), Skins was snuffed back in June, Teen Wolf quickly earned a Season 2 pick-up, and Awkward is off to a solid start.
