In advance of this year’s MTV Movie Awards (airing at 9 p.m. ET on April 13), Divergent star Miles Teller stopped by the network to talk about some of the “Most WTF Moments” from the ceremony’s 22-year history.

But Teller, a Best Kiss co-nominee with Shailene Woodley for The Spectacular Now, didn’t stop there. He gave host Josh Horowitz a few tips for on-screen kissing etiquette. And that’s when things got awkward… READ FULL STORY

'Are You the One?': 10 things we learned from fan-favorites Chris and Shanley

Hindsight is 20/20, especially when said hindsight involves a million dollars.

The saying is especially true for Are You the One? contestants Chris and Shanley, who have a few things to say about their time on MTV’s unnervingly addictive reality series about twenty twenty-somethings who have the opportunity to share a $1,000,000 prize if they can pair off into ten perfectly-matched couples.

Chris and Shanley emerged early on as a favorite couple for viewers, but after the show’s fact-checking truth booth told them they weren’t a match, they continued to flirt and fawn despite jeopardizing the house’s chances at winning the grand prize. Fed up, the other housemates found Chris’s perfect match and sent him off the premises, leading to a huge meltdown for Shanley and heartbreak for the show’s most popular couple.

With Are You the One?’s first season finale on March 25 (on MTV at 11 p.m. ET), EW spoke to Chris and Shanley about life behind the scenes and where things stand for the two of them now — and whether they would have done the same thing their housemates did. Here’s what we learned:

Lady friends fake romance in MTV's 'Faking It': Watch the trailer

“Popular” used to be a title reserved for jocks and homecoming queens — but MTV’s upcoming scripted series Faking It proposes that lesbians may be the new cool kids.

The show follows Karma (Katie Stevens) and Amy (Rita Volk), two best friends who are desperate to be popular. Once someone falsely outs them as gay, they find out everyone at school finally wants to be their friends — mission accomplished! The only problem: They don’t actually have romantic feelings for each other, so they have to choose between being honest or being popular. Guess which they pick?

Watch the trailer below and catch the premiere April 22 at 10:30 p.m. on MTV:

'Are You the One?': What happens in the Boom Boom Room -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

…is a whole lotta tension! And many a moral quandary, I might add.

On the next episode of MTV’s pairing-is-caringhumping reality series Are You the One?, once-solid presumed Perfect Match Ryan and Kayla find themselves in the middle of their biggest fight yet when Kayla refuses Ryan’s invite to the Boom Boom Room on moral (high)grounds. Given all the sexy time the duo has logged in the shower and various hallways, Ryan is understandably confused — and, as the outmoded sexual politics of the show tend to go, a little offended that she dare deny him.

Watch the wrong kind of fireworks go off between the lovebirds as Kayla tries to explain her dilemma — all while being mocked by an eavesdropping cabal of housemates, of course… READ FULL STORY

10 burning questions about MTV's guilty pleasure 'Are You the One?'

My latest obsession? MTV’s Are You the One?, a Real World-style dating show that drops 10 guys and 10 girls in Hawaii and asks them to work together to find the perfect matches among them. If they can successfully pair up with their predetermined soul mates, they’ll all split a million bucks.

After just two episodes, I’ve gotten deeply invested in the show, and I can’t quite explain why. If a team of matchmakers told you that only one Bachelor contestant was scientifically compatible with Juan Pablo, wouldn’t that completely change the way you watched? That’s how it feels with Are You the One?, which plays up our  voyeuristic love of TV dating by promising you that, yes, 10 of these couples actually do belong together.

Or do they? The first two episodes have proven that mutual attraction (they’re all beautiful, FYI) and surface connection (“You like the movie Labyrinth? Wait, I like Labyrinth!”) don’t a perfect match make, and therein is the guilty fun of the show. It’s as if The Challenge and The Bachelor had a weird but gorgeous, chiseled baby who only cries on Tuesday nights at 11 p.m.

In my conversations with a few dear friends who have also fallen victim to the show’s puerile charms, we realized there were quite a few questions that we needed answering, so I took them straight to the producers. Read on — or, if burning questions aren’t your thing, scroll all the way down for an exclusive clip from Tuesday night’s episode. READ FULL STORY

MTV picks up new scripted family drama series from 'Bones' writer

MTV has picked up the drama series Finding Carter from executive producer Terri Minsky (Sex and the City) and based on an original script by Bones writer Emily Silver .

The first drama series MTV has announced this year, Finding Carter is a coming-of-age story about a teenager named Carter (Kathryn Prescott) who seemingly has the perfect life with fun-loving single mom Lori (Milena Govich), until the police bust a high school party and it’s discovered that Lori abducted Carter as a toddler. Now, Carter must return to the family who thought they had lost her. As she navigates brand-new parents, a twin sister, high school, and boys, she vows to find Lori before the only mom she’s ever known is gone forever. Finding Carter is an unconventional family drama about a girl who is quickly realizing that sometimes the people closest to you are the ones who have the most to hide.

'Teen Wolf': Tyler Posey talks Stiles, 'Dexter,' and the 'most intense, unforgettable season ever'

Teen Wolf fans, prepare to sink your teeth into Tyler Posey.

The winter premiere of TV’s craziest, wildest, bloodiest high school drama is at hand, and EW chatted with the Teen Wolf himself to find out what’s in store for the second half of the show’s third season. Posey promises an unforgettable installment of the devilishly dark thriller—and if the totally crackers first episode is any indication, then we’re in for one hell of a ride in 2014.

Former MTV VJ Lisa Kennedy Montgomery to host libertarian Fox Business show

What’s next — Downtown Julie Brown moving to CNBC?

Fox Business announced Tuesday that Lisa Kennedy Montgomery — better known as ex-MTV VJ Kennedy, the hipster conservative host of Alternative Nation from 1992 to 1997 — is joining the network as host of a new program called The Independents. The series, which will air Monday through Wednesday and Friday nights at 9 p.m. ET, will feature “a roundtable discussion about the day’s news, with a focus on the protection of economic and civil liberties.”

Montgomery isn’t a new addition to the Fox family — she joined the company’s business network as a contributor and special correspondent to John Stossel’s weekly talk show last year. Previously, Montgomery hosted Fox Reality’s recap show Reality Remix from 2005 to 2008.

Matt Welch, editor of the libertarian monthly Reason — to which Montgomery also contributes — and Kmele Foster, chairman of the conservative/libertarian America’s Future Foundation, will co-host The Independents alongside Montgomery.

The roundtable will premiere Monday, Dec. 9.

You have been warned: Miley Cyrus to take over MTV for a day

Miley Cyrus’ wrecking ball has been doing a lot of swinging around MTV lately.

First there was that little performance at the VMAs in August that sparked some controversy among fans and teddy bears alike. Then in October, Cyrus went back to MTV in Miley: The Movement, a documentary special about her life leading up to the twerk seen round the world. Oh yeah, then she smoked pot on stage at the MTV EMA Awards in Amsterdam, natch. Now it appears MTV can’t and won’t stop its affixation with the tween star-turned-superstar.

To celebrate her 21st birthday, Cyrus is taking over MTV for eight hours on Saturday, Nov. 23. Starting at 12 p.m. ET, the festivities will begin with the all-new special 21 Candles: Miley’s MTV Moments.

MTV picks up 10 more episodes of 'Awkward'

Well, this could get Awkward.

And we mean that in a good way. EW has confirmed that MTV’s Awkward isn’t finished yet. The network has picked up season 4′s back 10 episodes, so just in case you were worried, there’s plenty more awkwardness coming your way.

MTV launches new series on app before TV premiere

MTV is releasing a full season of a new series about a luckless high school football team on its mobile application Friday, a week before the first episode is shown on television.

It appears to be a new milestone in the fast-moving world of technology changing traditional television content, much like when Netflix made an entire season of House of Cards available at once through the streaming service. MTV made its free app available on iPhones, iPads, iPods and the Xbox 360 in June, and nearly 2 million have been downloaded.

The series, Wait Till Next Year, is a 12-episode docudrama about a high school football team that had lost 43 games in a row and the community surrounding it.

“It will be fun to see if we can get them to come back and watch on television,” said Kristin Frank, MTV’s executive vice president of connected content. READ FULL STORY

MTV is searching for the next big... 'Copycat'?

MTV might be a little behind the singing show curve, but at least they’re honest about it in their new series, Copycat. Next Entertainment, in association with Warner Horizon Television, will produce a new half-hour show where wannabe singers battle it out on stage for a cash prize. The catch? The competitors are trying to sound like their favorite recording artists to earn the title of Ultimate Copycat.

The series, from The Bachelor producer, Mike Fleiss, is set to air in the afternoon, perhaps in hopes of connecting with the same audience that delivered solid ratings in those glorious TRL years. No word on the premiere date yet, so tell that karaoke DJ to power up the Beyoncé, because you’ve got some practicing to do.

What do you think — better to suspect that someone is secretly trying to sound like Adele, or have them actually fess up to it and battle Mariah and Whitney sound-alikes while they’re at it?
