    Not quite the 24 Teen Wolf got but still really happy.

    Plus that show only got 24 because of the tax incentive scheme.

    What season 3? this show was crap from day one, didnt think it would make it past the first episode. I cant believe how low TV is these days, and how brainless we as TV audiences have become.

  13. I watched season 1 last month because of all the good things I heard, you know, with the show being a “critical darling” and all. It’s really not that good. Average at best. And not that funny at all. Annoying at times.

  14. Jayla St Claire says:

    I hope Jenna’s fashion improves…
    Love the show!!!

  15. Aimee Johnson says:

    YESSSSS!!! MTV are not as brainless as I thought (still stupid for putting a crappy reality show to air before such a well-crafted series)
