MTV is schitzo. One moment they do something that advances the awareness of their audience, and then literally a half hour later they'll smack us in the face with some low brow entertainment.
Case in point - this week MTV showed a documentary about 3 students who traveled to Darfur to see for themselves the ruin caused by Sudan's war. Informative and positive? Sure.
Now let's flip the MTV coin. This week they also announced a new show called "Yo Momma". I'm embarrassed to even explain what this show is about.
