MTV Cancels Scripted Series

Aug 15, 2011  •  Post A Comment

MTV has canceled a scripted series after two seasons on the air, reports the Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker blog.

The show is "The Hard Times of RJ Berger," which attracted 3.1 million viewers for its second-season debut but saw viewership drop below 1 million throughout the season, the story notes.

The series about a well-endowed teenager represented the reality-heavy network’s push into scripted programming. It’s the second of MTV’s new scripted shows to be canceled, following "Skins," a remake of the British show, which was scrapped after one season.

"Teen Wolf," another scripted show, was recently renewed for a second season, while "Awkward" shows potential for a second season, the story says.
