Tonight at 11 p.m. is the premiere of MTV’s “Savage U,” the half-hour series in which Dan Savage, sex advice columnist and founder of the It Gets Better Project, travels to 12 colleges and universities across the country and talks to young folks about sex and relationships. Given his experience — he’s been doling out… READ MORE »

I love Dan Savage for a number of reasons. Among them, the “It Gets Better” campaign and the dumb but true advice that “every relationship fails until the one that doesn’t.” Aside from that, I love Dan because he offers smart, non-judgmental advice about sex and relationships, but will totally tell his readers if they’re… READ MORE »

Brace yourself, folks:  “True Life: I’m Occupying Wall Street” will air tonight on MTV and here’s what the New York Times has to say about it. 
“[The show portrays] the scene in Zuccotti Park as summer camp with protest signs, a rolling festival of exasperation and naïveté, stone-faced cops and Hacky Sack—Fuming Man.”
Hmm. READ MORE »

Every Sunday back in the day, before MTV’s alterna-video show “120 Minutes,” the network would run “Liquid Television,” a show featuring the latest and greatest in animated shorts. While “LTV” isn’t back, it does live on — online. And we’ve found the entire season of one of our favorite shorts, “Winter Steele.” In it, bad… READ MORE »

Last night, as the East Coast was coming out of our hurricane cocoons, the music-eratti descended on Los Angeles for the 26th annual MTV Video Music Awards. Now, this awards show is always confusing, mainly because MTV hardly plays music videos anymore, so it seems strange to have an awards show for them. But it’s… READ MORE »

This feisty feline, who looks suspiciously like my cat Cleo, sure out-meows Madonna. In a truly awesome set of videos, MTV has commissioned cats and dogs to recreate iconic moments from the VMAs over the years. This one is, of course, Madonna’s performance of “Like a Virgin” from the very first VMAs in… READ MORE »

This is not a suitable “Friday Night Lights” replacement. On Friday night, MTV2 will premiere its second season of “Lingerie Football League: Friday Night Football.” The concept is fairly obvious from the title. The LFL consists of 12 teams of female players, with names like the Philadelphia Passion and the Los Angeles Temptation,… READ MORE »

MTV’s new reality show, “Chelsea Settles,” is all about a girl who moves from a small town to chase her dreams of a career in fashion. So far, so much like “The Hills,” right? But, TWIST! Chelsea also happens to technically be “morbidly obese,” weighing in at an unhealthy 324 pounds (think “Celebrity Fit… READ MORE »

Yesterday, Lady Gaga’s video for “Yoü and I” was supposed to premiere on MTV at exactly 7:49p.m. However, after it leaked earlier in the week, Gaga jumped the gun on unveiling the video, which features her as mermaid Yuyi and as dude Jo Calderone, as well as rocking her mother’s actual wedding dress.

MTV’s Staying Alive HIV prevention campaign partnered up with iCondom for a new iPhone app that allows users to search via GPS for places to buy condoms. While I commend MTV commitment to promoting safe sex, I also think it’s stupid to make it seem to adolescents that condoms are hard to find. You can… READ MORE »

Would you sign an employment contract that warned you of humiliation, exposure to STDs, physical violence, or death? Me neither. But that’s all in a day’s work for cast members of MTV’s “The Real World.” The Village Voice got its hands on a 30-page, unsigned contract for the lovable drunks on “The Real World” and… READ MORE »

There may be nothing quite as wonderful as listening to Kurt Loder reporting about the burgeoning cyber revolution in 1995. Loder, who remains MTV’s lone staunch cynical dad figure, discusses in-depth the “world wide computer network” and its many “special interest truck stops” called websites. Enjoy taking a peak at awesomely antiquated Geocities sites… READ MORE »

Back in 2009, MTV filmed, but never aired, 12 episodes of a reality show called “Bridge & Tunnel” about Brianna and Gabriella DeBartoli, two party girls from Staten Island. I’m sorry, it’s not Staten Island — it’s DRAMA ISLAND! MTV aired “Jersey Shore” instead, which, let’s be honest, was the better $$$… READ MORE »

Now in most ways, I am thrilled to see the ’90s come back. I loved that, last year, both The Pixies and Pavement were on tour.
