MTV is renewing Teen Mom for a second season and is picking up If You Really Knew Me, a reality series being compared to The Breakfast Club.
The first season of Teen Mom followed the post-delivery lives of Maci, Amber, Farrah and Catelynn, whose pregnancies were documented on 16 and Pregnant.
The Biggest Loser, Migdalia
Biggest Loser's Green Team may have began the competition strong by winning Week 1's task, but they soon faced challenge after challenge. By the third week, Migdalia Sebren, 28, walked out of the gym — and almost the show — when Jillian pushed her beyond her emotional limits. A week later, Migdalia and her mother Miggy were hit with a 2-pound disadvantage. Even without that hit, their meager weight loss that week — Migdalia shed 4 pounds and Miggy only 1 — would have put them at risk for elimination anyway.
This week's episode gave one team a lot of power in the game, while another continued to alienate themselves from their fellow competitors.
After being called out more than once for lying about her game-playing strategy, Melissa is keeping up her guise that she did not throw the last two weigh-ins. And as if that didn't put a big enough target on her team's back, Red continues to stay ahead of the game by winning the pop challenge. The task had a few layers to the competition. Each team had to run the "presidential mile" in order to grab a key card and then bring it back to a board that they would insert the card into. If a green check shows, that's one point. But if you get a red X, it is no points. First team to get three points and wins you the game, immunity and three envelopes to open.
Chris Harrison, The Bachelor
Chris Harrison told TVGuide.com that this week's episode of The Bachelor would have another "first" — and it did. Not only did Jake choose to send home both Ella and Kathryn on his two-on-one date, but he also decided to send an extra woman home during the rose ceremony. TVGuide.com spoke to Harrison about Jake "cleaning house" and how Tenley has become the front-runner...
The last episode of One Tree Hill ended with the arrival of "Hurricane Taylor," and this week picked right up in the middle of the storm. As Tree Hill's Shantel VanSanten (who plays Quinn) told me, Taylor and David really are together, and there's about to be some major family plot lines to come. So, let's get to recapping.
Shantel VanSanten, One Tree Hill
After Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton left One Tree Hill (Mon, 8/7c on CW) last season, the show ushered in a new pair of hotties — Robert Buckley and Shantel VanSanten. VanSanten plays Quinn, a photographer who ran to Tree Hill as an escape from her declining marriage. Now officially divorced and snuggled up with Clay (Buckley), Quinn got a rude awakening when her ex-husband David and her sister Taylor showed up last week ... as a couple. TVGuide.com spoke to VanSanten about joining the series, what's ahead for her and her sisters, and about being a part of Brittany Murphy's final film.
Ronnie - Jersey Shore
Between going to the gym, tanning and doing laundry (GTL), the housemates of Jersey Shore still make time for fighting. As we prepare for the separation anxiety that will surely set in after Thursday's season finale (10/9c, MTV), let's take a look back at our favorite fights —physical and otherwise.
The Biggest Loser, Maria Ventrella
A week after being hospitalized for a fall during a challenge that tested her fear of water, Maria Ventrella was up for elimination from The Biggest Loser ranch against her son, and teammate, Michael. Satisfying her wishes to keep Michael, 31, on campus, the 51-year-old Maria was sent home, but not without hearing her fellow contestants claim that her son didn't deserve to stay.
