Renews ‘Teen Mom' for season two

If You Really Knew Me is being described as a real life Breakfast Club, following five high school students from different cliques (jocks, geeks, brains, etc.) as they experience "Challenge Day," a program designed to break down those barriers. Each week will focus on a different high school across the country. MTV has ordered 12 episodes of the series, which will premiere in Q4 2010. Arnold Shapiro Productions is producing the series, Angie Day and Arnold Shapiro are executive producers.
Teen Mom became one of the network's breakout reality hits, with the first season finale drawing over 3.6 million total viewers, and a 3.5 12-34 demo rating. The series was spun off of 2009's surprise hit 16 and Pregnant. Season two of Teen Mom will debut in summer 2010, with the network ordering eight episodes.
"Both series share an unfiltered and unique look at different aspects of teen life, and the transition to adulthood. We are thrilled to continue to tell the stories of these teen moms, and to work with Arnold Shapiro on this new documentary series that breaks down the walls of cliques in high school and brings kids together," said Tony DiSanto, president of MTV programming.
MTV needs to stay the hell away from these students. I went to Neenah High School, the school they filmed today. They are going make it look like crap, and glorify "cliques" in school. They will make the "popular" cliques look good, and the "unpopular" cliques look bad, and make them feel worse than they already do from the way they feel/are treated by other students there already. I know this for a fact, because my girlfriend was followed around all day by a camera crew and she felt uncomfortable and extremely embarrasses all day. Stay away from our High Schools MTV, and y don't you try using your network to show what you are supposed to show "music television"? And not ruining the lives of normal, ordinary teens, and exploiting pregnant 16 year olds!
