10 MTV Shows That Need To Come Back Now That 'Jersey Shore' Is Back To Its Fist Pumping Ways

10 MTV Shows That Need To Come Back Now That 'Jersey Shore' Is Back To Its Fist Pumping Ways

If Snooki can return to television, so should Daria. Just sayin.

April has brought us many things: a blizzard, below-average temperatures, the looming stress of finals week, and most importantly, the long-awaited reboot of "Jersey Shore." I, for one, was way too young when the show first aired back in 2009 but that didn't stop me from watching every season and learning how to fist pump in nightclubs that I wasn't even allowed in to yet.

But alas, the show has returned with (almost) all of the cast members back and ready to party. While watching the new show though, I kept reminiscing about all of the other great MTV shows that also died off a little too soon. So I made this definitive list of the shows I want to see MTV bring back, for the sake of the greater good.

1. "The Hills"

"The Hills" is the TV show that made me want to move to Los Angeles and do absolutely nothing for the rest of my life. I absolutely do not care if the show was (supposedly) scripted, I need to know what Lauren Conrad is doing with her life.

2. "Road Rules"

"Road Rules" was basically "The Real World," but in an RV. A road trip is always fun, but a road trip where you're trapped with complete strangers and have to drive around the country without killing each other = major drama made for reality TV.

3. "Beavis and Butt-head"

The world does not really need "Beavis and Butt-head" to come back, but it is what we deserve. Right now, in the political turmoil that we're living in, the stupid jokes and dumb commentary that they provide is exactly the comic relief that we should be gifted with. We've suffered enough.

4. "Awkward"

"Awkward" was totally short-lived and underrated. Perfectly depicting the struggles of high school, it was like Degrassi but if you made it super bitchy and sassy. There's only one thing I can say to y'all when MTV decides to reboot it: "You're welcome."

5. "Daria"

I don't know about you, but Daria Morgendorffer is honestly why I am who I am today. We definitely need to bring the queen of sarcasm back to the silver screen.

6. "My Life as Liz"

This show was horribly underrated, and pure comedy gold. A mockumentary about a girl just trying to live her best life in Texas, "My Life as Liz" was funny, heartwarming, and super relatable.

7. "Silent Library"

Arguably the best game show of our generation, "Silent Library" had a tiny reboot a few years ago but it deserves way more attention. Who doesn't want to see a man get slapped in the face with some whipped cream while his friends muffle their laughter (or laugh uproariously) behind him?

8. "Parental Control"

This show had everything, to be honest. The scandalous romance of "The Bachelor," the awkwardness of parents meeting boyfriends, and super cool dates you only wished you could go on.

9. "Next"

Another entertaining dating show that was gone all too soon. I would honestly rather watch this any day than "Bachelor in Paradise." Plus, the intro cards wrote the jokes for the show themselves.

10. "Punk'd"

Not quite sure what Ashton Kutcher is doing with his life these days (besides advocating against sex trafficking in court) but I for one would love to see him employed again at MTV for the best prank show of all time. Any show that can make Justin Timberlake cry is iconic and deserves to remain on air forever.

6 Places in New York City Every "Friends" Fan Needs to Visit

Grab a cup of coffee at Central Park.

As a Friends fanatic myself, I often wonder about the places in New York City featured in the various episodes and whether I could actually visit them. Most of them are fictional or no longer exist, but there are a few places you can go to reminisce about your favorite Friends moments. So, here are 6 places in New York City you definitely need to visit as a Friends fan.

1. The Apartment Building, Obviously

The building used for the exterior shot of the apartments in Friends is real, and is located at 90 Bedford Street at the corner of Grove Street in Greenwich Village. It's an obvious must-see.

2. The Pullitzer Fountain

This is the fountain that the friends danced around in for the iconic theme song, and it's located right in Central Park.

3. Bloomingdale's

This is the department where Rachel worked before she moved on to Ralph Lauren, where she met Joshua, and where she started her career in fashion.

4. The Plaza Hotel

This is where Monica and Chandler celebrated their engagement in The One WIth Monica's Thunder, and is actually really gorgeous.

5. The Central Perk Replica

While Central Perk isn't a real coffee shop, a pop-up replica opened up in 2014 on Lafayette Street and it's definitely a must-visit.

6. Chandler's Office

The fictional Chandler works in the real Solow Building, located on West 57th street.

Hannah B. Named The Next Bachelorette: Get Excited!!

Roll Tide.


On the season finale of the hit reality TV show 'The Bachelor' Chris Harrison announced the new Bachelorette to be Hannah Brown, affectionately referred to as "Hannah Beast." Hannah made it far in Colton's season of the Bachelor, but hit some bumps along the way. She was involved in serious drama with costar and fellow pageant competitor Caelynn. Not only is Hannah B. known for drama and tears, she is also known for her awkward and often uncomfortable behavior around the cameras. And let's not forget the most awkward first date and toast of all time...Roll Tide!

Despite her awkward and quirky personality, I think the Alabama native is truly a sweetheart. She cannot be judged based on the controversy that took place between her and Caelynn because no one knows the full truth of the story. In my opinion, no one was completely innocent in their "cat fight" but the way in which each girl handled themselves in the resolution of this drama was mature and, quite frankly, impressive. I think Hannah B's season will be full of more tears and could potentially be very uncomfortable to watch at some moments, but at the end of the say, Hannah B. deserves to find love just like any other 'Bachelor' hopeful. It will definitely be an interesting season to watch, so get excited!!
