Justin Bieber, The Hard Times of RJ Berger
Has Bieber Fever struck again? Just when ratings for MTV's new scripted comedy The Hard Times of RJ Berger most needed a boost, Justin Bieber may have helped bring in a crowd.
To wit, MTV has renewed Hard Times for a second season, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively. The decision comes after a recent upswing in viewership that coincides with the 16-year-old pop superstar endorsing it as "funny stuff." Twelve new episodes will premiere sometime next year.
Here's how our friend with the famously flippable locks lent a hand:
Nicole Snooki Polizzi
Looks like Snooks didn't have to spend the night in jail.
Shortly after the arrest of Jersey Shore's Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi on Friday, the reality star was released from custody, according to Seaside Heights Police.
The MTV reality star, 22, was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct in Seaside Heights, N.J., where the third season of Shore is being filmed.

Barack Obama, Jon Hamm
The boys were back in town this week. Rescue Me's Tommy had a spectacular flameout in his quest for sobriety. Coach Taylor counseled a pained player on Friday Night Lights. The men told all on The Bachelorette. President Obama charmed the ladies of The View. And Don Draper tried to get his groove back on the new season of Mad Men. Welcome to Top Moments: Manly Men Edition.
Here's the Situation: A record-setting 5.3 million viewers tuned in to the Season 2 premiere of MTV's Jersey Shore.
That's up a staggering 280 percent over December's series opener, according to the network.
Jeers to Jersey Shore for losing touch with its Garden State roots.
As has been noted by Gov. Chris Christie, among others, much of the cast of MTV's watercooler smash doesn't hail from New Jersey. At least Season 1 was shot in Seaside Heights, but in a rush to get the show back on the air before Snooki & Co.'s 15 minutes of infamy run out, Season 2 opens with the gang fleeing the snowy Northeast for Miami Beach (or "the MIA," which, as the Situation helpfully explains, "means Miami")...
"We're in Miami, b-tch." Get ready to hear that phrase a lot this summer now that Jersey Shore Season 2 is upon us. Editors Robyn and Gina are here to provide the world with a recap of the gem that is this MTV show. So let's get to it!
The new season picks up with everyone getting ready to leave the cold and snow behind as they head to Miami. After all, what's the point of staying if — in the words of Pauly D — "You can't tan in this weatha. You can't creep in this weatha. You can't do anything."
The Jersey Shore
The Situation, Snooki and the rest of the "GTL" crew are back for a second season of TV's guiltiest pleasure. But this time, they're leaving the Jersey Shore behind and taking their fake tans and fist pumps down south to Miami, where more debauchery is sure to occur. Before long, the drama picks up where it left off, with former flames Ronnie and Sammi getting into a flight in a club after she accuses him of flirting with other girls. Doesn't sound like much has changed.
Read on for previews of Royal Pains, On the Road with Austin & Santino, 30 for 30, the X Games, CSI and Project Runway.
Don't count New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie among the fans of MTV's Jersey Shore.
