MTV is planning to re-air Laguna Beach and The Hills as part of its weekday "RetroMTVBrunch" schedule. Additionally, the network will debut a never-before-aired alternate ending to The Hills.
Kicking off Monday, July 8 at 9 a.m. ET/PT, MTV will run their hit reality show Laguna Beach from the beginning. The first season, which premiered in 2004, launched the careers of Lauren Conrad, Kristin Cavallari and Stephen Colletti. Beginning Tuesday, July 9, the 4-hour episode block begins airing at 8 a.m. ET/PT.

As a special treat, on Friday, August 9 at 11:30 a.m. ET/PT, MTV will air an alternate ending to The Hills. When the series ended its 6-season run in 2010, the final scene showed Cavallari and Brody Jenner saying goodbye, before a back drop moved and depicted the green screen they were in front of as a nod to the rumors that the show was fake.
Lauren Conrad's top words of wisdom
How did any of us survive high school? Forget grades. We're talking insecurities, anxieties and social terrors, which have rarely found such vivid comic voice as in MTV's wonderful comedy Awkward, which begins a third season of emotionally harrowing hilarity with back-to-back episodes (Tuesday, 10/9c).
It's junior year (or "the beginning of the end") for the show's self-consciously angsty narrator/blogger Jenna (the terrific Ashley Rickards), who you'd think might be in a happier place having spent the summer cocooned with full-time no-longer-secret boyfriend Matty (Beau Mirchoff). No such luck. With other friends having spent their off time in Europe, hooking up and changing their looks without keeping her in the loop, Jenna worries she's being sidelined, left behind, forgotten. It doesn't help that her sadistic tyrant of a new creative-writing teacher, the heartless Mr. Hart (Anthony Michael Hall), burrows into her fragile psyche with the very first assignment: "Write about your greatest fear." Where to begin?
While I tend to hate everyone that shares my name based on principle alone, there's something I find irresistible about Awkward's Sadie Saxton (Molly Tarlov).
It's surprising that Jenna's nemesis is the one to revolutionize my life-long philosophy. On the surface, Sadie is one of the cruelest characters on TV, but over time we've gotten to see a more vulnerable side to Awkward's resident mean girl. But have these moments been enough to humanize the Queen Bee of Palos Verdes?
Awkward fans are about to see a whole new side to resident mean girl Sadie when she falls in love for the first time.
"She's going to let her guard down a bit," star Molly Tarlov tells TVGuide.com. "She's going to be dealing with male intention for the first time. Sadie's whole thing is that she wants attention, but also doesn't want it — that's what makes her so insecure and so mean."
