So this is perfect.

Joe Adalian just tweeted an update with MTV VMA ratings and they are flat out bad. The show dropped from 12.4 million last year to 6.1 million this year. The lack of stars and excitement may have something to do with it, as might the DNC convention and Obama, but Adalian calls out the move to Thursday as a specifically bad move.

Its upcoming 6th season will be its last.

hitfix:

MTV adds 5 new categories to Movie Awards including “Best On-Screen Dirt Bag”

Say what you will about Punk’d, it requires strong improvisers and comedic actors to pull off its stunts. Just ask Bill Hader, Dax Shepherd, BJ Novak, and Steve Rannazzisi.
