Teen Sitcom - History - MTV

MTV

The creation of MTV in 1981 had gathered a majority of the teenage audience with the airing of back-to-back music videos. MTV is now a lifestyle and pop culture channel that airs a limited amount of music videos, mostly late night and early morning hours, instead focusing on reality shows, soap operas, sports, documentaries, and music-related programs. MTV aired series targeted towards teenagers such as TRL, a daily music countdown show, Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County, a reality show focused around a group or rich teenagers living in California, its spinoff The Hills which is about former cast member Lauren Conrad and her internship at Teen Vogue. During the 1990s, MTV aired the controversial animated series Beavis and Butt-head, which focused on the antics of two idiotic teenage slackers and their unsuccessful attempts at scoring with chicks, though they often displayed gross, violent and crude behavior and a spinoff about their former classmate Daria aired in 1997 which focused around a cynical, sarcastic, intelligent yet monotone teenage girl and her stereotype-infested high school. In 2010 MTV premiered its first real teen sitcom The Hard Times of RJ Berger which became an instant hit. Awkward, in 2011, is another instant hit.
