MTV's Top 10 'Classic' Shows

Believe it or not, MTV is celebrating its 35th birthday this month, and the network remains as relevant as ever. Now, it's easy (and very tempting) to get snarky and joke about that idea: MTV's relevance. After all, this is a "music television" channel that has long abandoned the music in favor of niche programming geared toward a very specific audience. But there is no arguing that MTV shows have had a significant impact on society, from introducing countless young people to LGBT issues to doggedly promoting the importance of voting. As MTV marks its latest milestone with a new throwback channel focused on its '90s and '00s series, we're taking a look back at some of the network's best "classic" shows.

'The Real World: Ex-Plosion' creator Jonathan Murray on the ex twist: 'We weren't sure we could pull it off'

"The Real World: Ex-Plosion" premiered on Wednesday (Jan. 8) night, and at first, the show felt like any other season of "The Real World."The seven strangers -- four girls and three guys -- met, unpacked, and promptly got drunk, partied way too hard, fought, hooked up, and used the hot tub (in the nude and in bathing suits).And then there was Ashley, the hardest partier of them all. The San Francisco resident really dug a hole for herself on the first night in the house, getting way too wasted, saying some really offensive things about her socioeconomic status in comparison with others in the house, throwing hot burger oil at Arielle's face, and getting into it with Jamie before storming out in just a little pink bikini. Of course, the next day she sobered up, apologized for her actions, and things seemed like they had worked themselves out. That is, until that night when she... //

Real World’s New Season Will Be About Exes

  Once upon a time, The Real World was about seven strangers picked to live in a house. Then with Real World: Seattle , that changed to seven people picked to live in a house, since David and Nathan knew each other beforehand. For The Real World: Brooklyn , the cast expanded to eight. And now comes the biggest shake-up of all: The new season of the show will be The Real World: Ex-Plosion , and will feature young people and their exes. According to EW , the 29th season will still start with seven attractive show-offs  from a variety of backgrounds living in a swanky house, but then, four weeks in, their exes will show up and throw things for a loop.
