  • This is why most of the scripted shows on mtv fail, they don’t get a decent lead in to start off with.

  • Other than Teen Mom,CatFish and possibly Snooki and JWoww(which are all reality), MTV doesn’t have many strong series to launch new series with. Teen Wolf and Awkward are strong but MTV tried launching a new series after Awkward last season and it failed miserably.

    btw..whatever happened with the Scream franchise being turned into a series? Does MTV still have that in development?

    • Awkward has never helped launch a new show. It’s first season aired Tuesdays at 11 after Teen Mom and last year it aired Thursdays at 10:30 after Snooki and Jwoww. Since Snooki & Jwoww ends on April 2nd, I’m guessing Awkward will take over its slot the following week.

  • Seriously where the hell is the Awkward promotion from MTV? I have yet to see a Ad or even a date when it gonna return. The one strong show MTV had and they are burying it? What the hell MTV? Get out there and promote it

    • It premieres in April! I don’t think it said an exact date but the video should be on MTV.com on the Awkward page!

  • Does The Show with Vinny D seem like a total rehash of Dinner for Five to anyone else?

  • I think Bo Burnham is great, so I will definitely be giving Zach Stone a chance.
