Affirming its commitment to scripted shows, MTV announced that it is bringing back a comedy for a second season, reports Deadline.com.

The cable network renewed the sitcom "The Hard Times of RJ Berger," and issued a statement on the relationship between scripted and unscripted shows.

In the statement, MTV president of programming Tony DiSanto said, "We are 100% committed to scripted programming, and our current reality hits like ‘Teen Mom,’ ‘If You Really Knew Me’ and, of course, ‘Jersey Shore’ provide an incredibly solid foundation for us to launch scripted series and let them gain traction.”
