In MTV's new series If You Really Knew Me (Tuesday at 11/10c), students participate in a one-day program called Challenge Day that tries to break down the walls among these different circles.

Bentley and Maci
When MTV first debuted 16 and Pregnant, viewers got a glimpse of different pregnant teenagers and their first few weeks as a mom.

With Season 2 premiering Tuesday at 10/9c, Maci tells TVGuide.com that she and Ryan have split, but that he's done a better job learning to be a parent on his own. Maci also fills us in on what she's up to now and why her show has become birth control for all of her friends. Plus: Is she practicing safe sex with her new boyfriend?
I Dream of Jeannie, Eva Longoria
TV Guide Network is taking a look at the history of sex on the small screen in its two-part special Sex on TV.

"Would you like to see my basement?" isn't something most girls want to hear when meeting the parents of their date — especially when the basement is full of dead animals.
But The Bachelorette's Kirk DeWindt gave it a shot anyway when he took Ali Fedotowsky to his hometown in Wisconsin. "I was a little nervous to see her reaction ... but I had given her a fair warning — she knew what she was getting into," the 27-year-old suitor told TVGuide.com. "She's a roll-with-the-punches kind of girl, so I figured it wouldn't be too big of a deal."
As Bachelorette Ali and her final three suitors embark on exotic dates in Tahiti, Frank may let his doubts lead him to exit. But for viewers annoyed that they've already been spoiled by previews, Chris Harrison says, "If you think you think you've seen everything, you haven't."
