What Shows Has MTV got the Country Go Gaga Over?

MTV shows are sure to have you craving for more. Here are some reality TV hits that have got people anxious for the next episode.

Jersey Shore Family Vacation

A spinoff of Jersey Shore, which followed eight housemates at a vacation home, the Jersey Shore Family Vacation revolves around 7 of them going on a vacation. The third series showed Angelina Pivarnicks wedding plans and Mike Sorrentino going to prison for tax invasion. While the second half of the season was dedicated to Sorrentinos return – released after eight months in the federal prison – meanwhile Angelina Pivarnick celebrates her bachelorette party and weds.

The episode The Shorefather shows the roommates inviting Sorrentino and his wife over for a dinner and movie night. There, they show them a documentary of Sorrentinos evolution - from the time he was stuck in a situation-ship to when he sobered and got married - along with some loving and welcoming words from the roommates. With such a great episode, you know what follows would only make for a great season!

Families of the Mafia

This docu-series follows four families of Staten Island – all are connected to some of the most notorious members of the Mafia. It shows the growing divide between the former-Mafia members who wish to have better lives for their kids and the rest. The recent teaser features Karen Gravano wishing her daughter does not get trapped in the Mafia lifestyle. They say you once you get in the mafia, you can not get out so it will be interesting to see if Karens desire gets fulfilled.

A spinoff of Made in Staten Island, this show focuses on the Gravanos. Gravanos father had worked as the underboss to the Gambino crime family. The show features other crime-families as well, like the OTooles, the Augustines, and the LaRoccas.

The Hills: New Beginnings

The first time The Hills aired, it had all our attention and its spinoff is a testament to our demand for more. The current series reunites with the old cast members, along with their children and friends. You get to see new faces too, as the show follows the personal and professional lives of several young women living in Los Angeles.

This time around, the vibe of the show is different – more authentic. With the cast settling into their adult lives and new responsibilities, its not the same as before. But, that does not mean it lacks the drama. If anything there is more of it this time. See for yourself, your bound to get addicted.

Catfish: The TV Show

Another reality TV show, this series showcases the ugly of the online dating world. Based on the 2010 film, Catfish, in this show film producers, Joseph and Schulman, set out to help people who find themselves emotionally entangled with a person they have never actually met. In each episode, they investigate whether the other person is real, and the mutual connection legitimate or the other person is a catfish – a term derived for those involved with the trickery of a specific kind i.e. using someone else pictures and information, to get unassuming individuals to invest themselves emotionally in an online relationship. Together the duo uncovers stories of couples who have been in a relationship for months and even years. Tune in to see if these people found true love or got cat-fished.

Nick Cannon Presents: Wild n Out
