MTV’s Sweet 16: The Reality Show Blow Out
MTV will be airing 16 new reality shows in the coming season, all with the theme of young people proving themselves.
MTV has been having some trouble lately in terms of their ratings and they hope that these shows will draw in audiences. So far they have unveiled 8 of the shows including spin offs like “Daddy’s Girls”, “The City” and brand new shows like “College Life” (which I had not heard of until I started writing this post!).
Here is an excerpt from the story (with all the numbers/names)
The cabler’s recent ratings declines include a 23% fourth-quarter drop in its core demo of 12- to 34-year-olds. So MTV is embarking on a major programming overhaul, with 16 new unscripted series over the next 4½ months.
The series come from high-profile producers including Sean Combs, Matt Stone & Trey Parker, Donald Trump and Nick Lachey. And they represent a major thematic shift for the channel — more toward the meta-scripted reality of MTV’s “The Hills,” one of the cabler’s few success stories these days.

MTV Casting Call: “My Super Sweet 16″
Tired of seeing the big budget parties get all the fame? Want to show-
case your Sweet 16 birthday party and put it up against someone else’s
to see who comes out on top? MTV is currently casting teens for the
next season of “My Super Sweet 16.” For this upcoming season, things
are being done a little differently. The party doesn’t have to be super-
expensive as producers are seeking parties taking place between
January and mid-February with a lower budget. As an added bonus,
you could end up having DJ Excel ‘The Mixmaster’ NYC as your
special guest DJ on MTV!
