Shane Sparks

Although Shane Sparks told TVGuide.com that he'd be fighting the "bogus allegations" of child molestation stemming from his arrest in 2009, he has pleaded no contest to a single felony count of having unlawful sex with a minor under 16.

The Los Angeles Times reports that the former America's Best Dance Crew judge and Emmy-nominated So You Think You Can Dance choreographer entered into a plea deal Tuesday at Los Angeles County Superior Court in which eight felonies in connection with alleged sex acts would be dismissed in return for his pleading no contest to the single felony.

Five Ways MTV Could Relive Its Youth at Age 30

MTV

On Aug. 1, 1981, with the help of the Buggles and their song "Video Killed the Radio Star," MTV launched into orbit. That means that MTV is turning 30. That's nearly a generation older than those in its 12-to-18 target demographic. Break out the dentures and Depends!

Seriously though, MTV is far different now. Really, with the boost of Jersey Shore and the 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom  shows, it's a different animal from when the channel was 27. When people talk about its changing face, the "Play videos again!" critique is never far from the discourse; yet, it's hard to see how straightforward music-video programming would fit in to a YouTubed world. Plus, MTV already has a bunch of offshoot stations like MTV Jams to do just that.

That said, it would be nice for MTV to relive what it once did well as a general pop-culture authority.

Check out five suggestions of themes the network could revisit to cover its age spots... read more

Beavis and Butt-Head Is Back! What's Old? What's New?

Beavis and Butt-Head

Ready for more Beavis and Butt-Head? Hope so, because MTV is bringing it back this fall. Series creator Mike Judge (the big brain also behind King of the Hill and the movie Office Space) and MTV President Van Toffler, a self-described B and B fanatic, spoke to reporters Friday at the fall TV previews about why it's coming back and how it'll be different.

WHAT'S OLD?

Fans of the original series, fear not: Beavis and Butt-Head are the same emotionally stunted man-children you remember from their 1993-1997 run on MTV. In fact, it'll mostly seem like no time has passed at all. "I didn't want to do a big, conscious forcing of modern stuff on them, only when it makes sense," Judge says. Millennial nods will include one episode in which the pair sees Twilight and decides they want to "get chicks" by becoming supernatural creatures themselves. So they... read more
