    @OMG

    I don’t get your post. You start off saying it’s not worth celebrating, but you end saying damage has been done. Surely it is worth celebrating if the show has done any sort of damage, right? What are you actually saying?

    YAAAAY!

    Hollywood never seems to run out of ideas for shows about stuffing people in a house together for a length of time. No matter how bad the idea sounds people will tune in.

    Praise Be! One less pile of steaming crap on TV! MTV had better start showing programs worth watching or the entire network can be cancelled as far as I am concerned.
    Want to watch music videos? Go to Google.com videos or You Tube. See all the music videos you want, when you want, as many times as you want.
    Who really needs MTV anymore?

    seriously…. I am thrilled… I look forward to watching the train wrecks and bankruptcies on TMZ, LOL

    They’re all already irrelevant. Next, Kim Kardashian with her fake face and fake family need to diaf.

    @Bill I think it’s already among us. Love and Hip Hop Atlanta.

    Nice, but it will just be replaced by even worse crap. Honey Boo Boo anyone?
