On the Awkward premiere on Tuesday (10:30/9:30c, MTV), Matty (Beau Mirchoff) threw his girlfriend Jenna (Ashley Rickards) a surprise birthday party, but was hit with his own surprise when she obliviously walked in making out with Colin (Nolan Funk). How will the high school hottie deal with the big betrayal?

The secret's out! In Tuesday's midseason premiere of MTV's Awkward the whole world found out about Jenna (Ashley Rickards) cheating on Matty (Beau Mirchoff) with hipster Collin (Nolan Gerard Funk) — and for once it wasn't because bestie Tamara (Jillian Rose Reed) blabbed to someone she shouldn't have. Reed called TV Guide Magazine to dish about what this means for Palos Hills High's worst secret keeper.

On the midseason finale, Jenna gave into temptation and kissed Colin Jennings. (Nolan Funk), the new guy that had caught her eye. So where does Jenna go from here?

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.

Way to squander a Voice lead-in, NBC. Turns out America wasn't ready to waste another night of the broadcast week on a ridiculously padded dating show, so after this week, Ready for Love (Tuesday, 9:01/8:01c) goes into reality limbo — and honestly, if scripted duds can get yanked without notice, why should lousy competition-reality shows be exempt when shunned like this one was? On the plus side, with The Voice about to end its enjoyable "battle" rounds and move next week into the "knockout" phase, the expanded Tuesday edition will be joined April 30 by the clever supernatural thriller Grimm, given a well-deserved reprieve from the Friday trenches for the rest of the season. (Part of me wishes NBC would invest more heavily in Hannibal and give it a shot in this wide-open Tuesday time period, but Grimm is probably a better fit.)

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?
