'Catfish Season 2: Last Hooks' react: Nev and Max forever

On Tuesday, Catfish‘s second season will come to a close with the sure-to-shock story of Mike and Caroline followed by a live reunion show. And although that’s good and dandy, what’s more important at the moment is what we just watched on the special, Catfish Season 2: Last Hooks. There were montages, bloopers, favorite moments, dance breaks, and even a trip to Peru. However, none of that overshadowed the absence of one silver fox named Max. Maybe it was just me, but I was genuinely hoping this special would be nothing but Nev and Max being adorable … though we did get glimpses of that. READ FULL STORY

'Catfish: The TV Show' react in GIF form -- Keyonnah and Bow Wow

This season’s Catfish: The TV Show, which premiered Tuesday, June 25 at 10 p.m. on MTV, features so many OMG moments that it is best to analyze each episode with equally expressive reactions. And not just text-based or still image reactions — GIF reactions.


There is no denying Catfish doesn’t understand its target audience. Case in point, the episode starts off with Nev, unable to control his desire to touch Max’s hair (that barber shop really did wonders for their relationship), fondles his friend’s silvery follicles, telling him to get some “flame.” There’s more than one thing flaming about this moment, or maybe I’m being too fan fiction-y.

'The Challenge' announces season 25: We imagine the perfect game

A year can be measured in two periods: time when a season of The Challenge is airing and time when you can speculate what a new season of The Challenge will bring. With the announcement of a 25th season on Wednesday, we have officially entered into the more agonizing latter half.

As I’m sure T.J. Lavin follows my life as closely as I follow his, I think I’ll take this opportunity to draw out what a perfect 25th season of The Challenge might look like, before filming begins this fall. I don’t want to bite the hand that feeds me by complaining, but I do want that hand to deliver the best season of The Challenge yet. It is it’s Silver Jubilee, after all.

Game + Cast + Competition = Dream 25th Season

I dreamed a dream of the perfect Game:

“The Duel” — The first choice for the next season has to be a Duel. Much like SNL, and probably the government, The Challenge is entering a time of restructuring. Long gone are the days of roaming gangs of vets and cowering rookies. There’s no one Johnny/Evan/Kenny alliance to rule them all. The tension is palpable amongst the community of Challenge contestants, and they want a game they can win on their own merit (well, most of them – I imagine, like, Jasmine doesn’t want that). They want a Duel III. READ FULL STORY

'Catfish: The TV Show' react in GIF form -- Derek and Kristen

This season’s Catfish: The TV Show, which premiered Tuesday, June 25 at 10 p.m. on MTV, features so many OMG moments that it is best to analyze each episode with equally expressive reactions. And not just text-based or still image reactions — GIF reactions.


After weeks and weeks of Nev wearing a boot for his injured foot, Max calls him out on wearing it while doing decidedly un-injured activities. (Do you think he saw Nev play American football or international football a.k.a. soccer? I wouldn’t put it past Max for being the type of American guy who calls soccer, football.) Nev dodges the question to avoid an angry phone call from an MTV producer paranoid over health insurance coverage for the Catfish star, joking, “I can’t get it off.” It’s a cute quip almost ruined by Max’s overextended fake laughter. Nev can be funny, Max, but he isn’t that funny.

'The Challenge': On the scene for 'Rivals II' reunion (and that slap!)

There was a chill in the air of a Midtown Manhattan TV studio when taping began for last night’s The Challenge: Rivals II reunion show — and it wasn’t the oncoming fall. Though the winners had just been announced, about 10 minutes into the live reunion, no one was talking about the results. Twitter feuders Frank and Knight – who weren’t technically rivals on the show — sat down to talk to host Jonny Moseley with a palpable tension between them as they discussed sparring online over comments Frank made about Knight’s ex (and Rivals II competitor) Jemmye. Flash-forward a few minutes: Bodyguards were escorting Knight out of the studio as a cluster of Challengers checked to see if Frank was okay. My first response: This has to be fake, right? But what went down in the few minutes after the altercation assured me it was not.

This season’s ‘Catfish: The TV Show,’ which premiered Tuesday, June 25 at 10 p.m. on MTV, features so many OMG moments that it is best to analyze each episode with equally expressive reactions. And not just text-based or still image reactions — GIF reactions.

Welcome back, Catfish fans! I missed Nevax on the off-week, and I’m glad we’re back. This week marks a new chapter for the series  — Masterpiece Classic presents Catfish: The TV Show. Nev attempts to class up his nondescript hotel joint,  opening the show as if he’s a real news anchor or host. Silly Nev, this isn’t real hard-hitting news, it’s Catfish! Max stops Nev’s flirtations with sophistication short, so that we can continue the show in the flashy MTV style we’ve come to know and love.

(That being said, now I’m waiting for the Downton Abbey-Catfish crossover. Has someone written that AU fanfic yet? Get on it, Internet.) READ FULL STORY

On the 15th anniversary of the 'TRL' premiere, a look back at the first top 10

For anybody who did not live through the peak of MTV’s Total Request Live, it’s difficult to understand just how important that show was to pop culture. Every day after school, TRL host Carson Daly would not only unveil the 10 most-requested videos of the day, but he would also interview movie stars, call his celebrity friends, and facilitate awkward exchanges between unlikely bedfellows. Before everybody cared about tween culture, TRL was the center of that universe.

It was also the last time MTV was truly committed to music videos. Though as time went on they showed less and less of the videos on the countdown, the early run of TRL featured full clips in all their glory, and for some of the most definitive acts of the late video era—including Eminem, Backstreet Boys, Blink 182, and Britney Spears—it was the only place to catch their work (remember, this is in the era before video on the Internet was a viable option).

But before all the Mariah Carey ice cream drop-ins and Tom Green-related conspiracies, it had to start with the first episode of Total Request Live, which aired on this day in 1998. It was a hybrid of two shows—MTV Live and Total Request—that had been running intermittently. The first show didn’t have a live studio audience, but it did have Daly’s low-key charisma and 10 great videos. On the 15th anniversary of the show’s premiere, let’s take a look back at the inaugural top 10. READ FULL STORY
