I feel like every time I turn on MTV, I see a marathon of one of the following shows: Teen Mom, 16 & Pregnant, Snookie & J-WOW, Jersey Shore, Buckwild…basically anything but The Challenge or Real World.
As established staples in MTV’s lineup, I’ve always wondered why these shows don’t receive the same respect? Sure, the plots of individual seasons don’t build on each other, but fans of the shows have been watching for years. I am not convinces that airing older seasons would be a complete waste. And I’m not talking about airing seasons such as Real World Boston or Battle of the Sexes. I think airing seasons from that past couple of years would be reasonable. Seasons whose cast members are still active in the MTV community.
Challenge fans, start Tweeting @MTV to let them know you want this. Remember these shows, because they’re still on MTV.
