At a heinously under-supervised school lock-in on 'The Hard Times of RJ Berger' (Mon, 10PM on MTV), things get even more out-of-hand than we expected when Miles accidentally drugged the student body. He brought in some biscotti he pilfered from his brother, only to find out too late they were drugged. Of course, things were great at first. A teenage boy locked in a school filled with teenage girls in their underwear is like a dream come true. When he saw Paris Hilton, that dream became a fantasy. Then she said he was hot. But then the high took a turn for the worse. Hilton morphed into a demonic beast and announced, "I am the devil!" http://www.tvsquad.com/2011/04/05/paris-hilton-appears-to-high-miles-hard-times-of-rj-berger-video/
MTV's The Hard Times of RJ Berger revolves around awkward moments; luckily, its star thrives on them. "I've made a career [out of awkward moments] at this point," Paul Iacono tells TVGuide.com. RJ Berger follows an unpopular teen who's thrust into the high school spotlight when his rather large member is revealed. At the heart of the somewhat sexually explicit show is a coming-of-age story that Iacono says people can identify with. http://www.tvguide.com/News/RJ-Berger-Video-1031269.aspx?rss=breakingnews
Perhaps hoping to inject a bit of juice into the ratings of 'The Hard Times of RJ Berger' (Mon., 10PM on MTV), the network pulled in a guest star from a sister series. While 'RJ' did respectable enough for the network to give it a second season, it hasn't exactly been exactly been setting the ratings world on fire. But 'Jersey Shore' certainly has. With 'Jersey' wrapped for now, fans of its cast may have just gravitated toward this show to see Vinny Guadagnino perfect his acting chops as RJ's cousin Vinny. See, no stretch on the name. And his character's persona? Let's just say he had RJ and the cast looking like the cast of his show by the end of the episode ... and not necessarily to the improvement of any of them. Lily was particularly disturbing as an even more crazed Snooki. http://www.tvsquad.com/2011/03/29/vinny-jersey-shore-hard-times-of-rj-berger-video/

Besides playing Max, Jayson has guest-starred on such shows as Glee , Heroes , and Rizzoli and Isles , and he will appear in the March 30 episode of Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior .

Has Bieber Fever struck again? Just when ratings for MTV's new scripted comedy The Hard Times of RJ Berger most needed a boost, Justin Bieber may have helped bring in a crowd. To wit, MTV has renewed Hard Times for a second season, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively. The decision comes after a recent upswing in viewership that coincides with the 16-year-old pop superstar endorsing it as "funny stuff." Twelve new episodes will premiere sometime next year. Here's how our friend with the famously flippable locks lent a hand: On July 19, Bieber tweeted "Just met the guys who created that new show on @MTV "The Hard Times of #RJBerger" - good dudes. Show's on tonight at 10pm. Funny stuff." That night, ratings shot up 9 percent from the week prior. The following episode gathered even more steam, jumping 14 percent from the episode before Bieber's tweet. To Read More Click Here .
