Do you think MTV contradicts themselves by airing shows like Jersey Shore and Real World, then airs Teen Mom to show the hardships of teen pregnancy?

One show encourages having sex with random people, and the other show supposedly is intended to show teens what it's like to be a teen with a baby...hmmmmmm yeah guys, I'm boored today. I want my kids back..lol

  • MTV has sucked for so many years now anyway. Once they got away from being the Music Television that they started out as, they've gone downhill. They should've just stuck to being real MTV. Well, maybe they could've kept Remote Control, that show was funny. But it hasn't been the same since way back when.

  • I think that they show many different lifestyles, but basically they'll just show whatever makes money.

  • It's MTV... the last place we should look for answers or values or anything that's even possibly normal.

  • No I think they are just trying to sell drama. They're a tv network. They gotta get viewers somehow.

  • It's entertainment, that's all it is. No one learns anything from those shows.

  • MTV just wants to make money.

    but i agree, i think the people on jersey shore are nasty and it pisses me off that my 14 yr old cousins and 13 yr old little brother are watching these scums spreading herpes all around.

  • I agree that they are doing it for ratings and money. But then parents wonder WHY kids are doing this crap!

    MTV will NOT be making an appearance in my household!

  • Beg to differ Gin, impressionable Teens watch these shows and get ideas about sex. MTV markets to teens wether they admit it or not. I never cared for Teen Mom either but I read that the show was meant to show the hardships of teen pregancy. I see them glamorizing more than showing the reality. Reality is they don't make a show about you.
