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?

Is this week's 'Catfish' really rapper Bow Wow? -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Catfish: The TV Show has built its reputation on twisted tales of love, friendship, and the Internet, some crazier than others. Hosts Nev Schulman and Max Joseph travel the country to connect two people who have a relationship — but have never met in person. This week’s episode features Keyonnah, a young woman, who believes she has been in contact with 106 & Park host and rapper Bow Wow. (Yup, that Bow Wow.) They met when the 19-year-old single mom messaged a Bow Wow fan page on Facebook. Now, they text and talk on the phone, even discussing starting a life together with their children. “Bow Wow” has even sent her over $10,000 throughout the months of their correspondence.  A love story this bizarre must be true…right?

Where has Miley's mother been? 'Right beside her,' according to doc -- VIDEO

For the past few months, wild child Miley Cyrus has provoked one question from professional pearl-clutchers: “Where on Earth is that poor girl’s mother?!” (And fine, maybe one more: “Won’t somebody PLEASE think of the children?!”)

The answer? “My mom is my homie,” Miley says in a clip from her upcoming MTV documentary. “If I win, she wins — not because she’s my manager; because she’s my mom.”

As for “anyone that’s ever said, ‘Where’s her mother?’” adds Tish Cyrus, the answer is “right beside her — through good, through bad, through arguments, through crying, through I don’t care what — right there.” Though foam finger thrusting, through naked pendulum swinging, through hour upon hour of tongue aerobics…


'The Challenge': Frank and Cooke get handsy in never-before-seen clip -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Any loyal Challenge viewer knows lots of shenanigans go down when the kids aren’t on the battlefield. In this exclusive, never-before-seen clip, Frank and Cooke take part in some of those shenanigans. Somewhere between circus camp-style tandem yoga poses, Frank’s declaration, “I’m walking you by your vagina,” and a good old-fashioned pantsing, it’s unclear whether the twosome ever really pinpoints what exactly the endgame is in this bizarro training ritual.

Then again, considering San Diego 2 alum Frank and Las Vegas 2 roomie Cooke have both identified as bisexual in the past, perhaps it’s a newfangled mating dance? Is this what the kids consider courting these days? Judge for yourself below, then sound off in the comments. (I could use the insight!)

'The Challenge': And so it begins... with an abduction? -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

As the competitors on Rivals II head into what’s sure to be another grueling (possibly even life-threatening, if past seasons are any indicator) final challenge, they all have their fears. For starters, Cara Maria is understandably antsy about anything swimming, Wes thinks a relocation to Tokyo will take away the environmental training he and partner CT have done to give themselves an edge, and CT feels vulnerable at the prospect of being bested by Johnny Bananas yet again. But once the production van is stopped by masked men in the Thai jungle, all those worries are out the window… watch below.

'Awkward.' trailer: Jenna hits 'rock bottom' with latest love triangle -- VIDEO

MTV’s Awkward. always works best when there’s a love triangle involved. And while we’re far removed from Jenna’s Matty vs. Jake debate of the early seasons, it’s time for a new tangle: Matty vs. Collin. (Seriously, Matty can’t catch a break.)

But Jenna’s real relationship drama as season 3 continues appears to be with BFF Tamara and with her parents, who threaten to kick our leading lady out of the house (harsh!).

Get a sneak peek of all the drama below:

'The Challenge': Diem's downfall? -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Could tonight be the end of Diem? In a crippling turnabout, the control-freak Challenger finds herself defensively trying to crawl out of an elimination hole this week. Her desperate maneuvering sets off a domino effect of friction with competitor Jemmye and widespread doubt over on-again boyfriend CT’s motives in rekindling their showmance. If you’re not busy mopping up tears over the possibility that even true(ish) love is a pawn in CT’s game, watch the fireworks between Diem and Jemmye below.

'The Challenge': Wes and Johnny fight, but CT wins -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Wait, if Wes and Johnny get in a fight, how is it that CT emerges the winner?

While you probably already expected some sort of brawl on tonight’s episode of The Challenge: Rivals II, now we know who is involved: perennial Challenge-ers Wes and Johnny. But CT isn’t one to stay out of a good fight — and once he enters, Johnny looks a little worried, because we all know CT isn’t above throwing a punch.

Check out the exclusive sneak peek below:

'The Challenge': Camila goes Bananas on Johnny (again) -- VIDEO

It’s The Camila-nator. You had to know she’d be back.

Though we can’t say what went down before the start of this exclusive clip that made Camila feel like she’d been “crucified,” we can say the results including her storming around the Challenge house with such rage that ex-boyfriend Johnny Bananas compares her to an angel dust-addled perp from COPS. Even CT is cowering! And when the cactus-puncher is ducking for cover, you know there’s trouble afoot. Watch below. READ FULL STORY

'The Challenge': A shocking development -- VIDEO

This certainly isn’t the first time tears have been shed during a challenge, but Nany and Jonna’s jaunt through an electrified obstacle course on tonight’s Rivals II is so wimpy that fellow competitor Frank deems it “the most pathetic show[ing] I’ve ever seen on a Challenge,” and host TJ Lavin calls it “pitiful” (while holding a foofy little white dog, no less!). By the end of the exclusive clip below, you might be crying too — from laughter.

'The Challenge': How annoying?! -- VIDEO

CT annoying? Noooo! (Okay, I might be biased.) On tonight’s episode of The Challenge: Rivals II, the men are tasked with identifying each other’s most irritating habits, Newlywed Game-style. It’s no surprise to discover that most of the bros aren’t very in tune with their partners’ feelings. But this game comes with a price — each incorrect answer send the Challenger’s teammate plunging into piranha-infested waters. (Truth: There are actually no piranhas in the water, but a girl can dream!) Click through to see what Wes finds most grating about CT — it’s probably not what you’d think… READ FULL STORY

'The Hills' alternate ending: Creator Adam DiVello talks [SPOILER]'s return, possible reunion -- EXCLUSIVE


MTV has been re-airing its glossy reality soap The Hills this summer, and today, they re-aired the series finale … but with a twist. The network debuted an alternate ending for the show, a spin-off of their similar hit Laguna Beach, which featured the return of — gasp! — star Lauren Conrad. The previous ending had Brody waving goodbye to on-again, off-again girlfriend Kristen and then the camera pulling back to reveal they were actually shooting on a backlot — a nod to rumors of the series being staged. In this new edition, Brody returns to his apartment where Conrad, who left the show in season 4, is sitting on his couch. When Brody says that he was saying goodbye to an old friend, Conrad cheekily responds, “It’s hard to say goodbye,” and then lets out a huge grin.

EW exclusively chatted with series creator Adam DiVello about this surprise ending, how it all came together, why it was scrapped, and the potential for a Hills reunion movie.
