TV Tonight: MTV Monday

MTV Mondays are (sadly) becoming must-see TV for me again tonight, with the return of two of my favorite guilty pleasures: "My Super Sweet 16" and "Engaged & Underage." Neither is exactly classy television, but both are weirdly addictive.

I love the spectacle and the excess of the spoiled brats on "Sweet 16," and I both curse their indulgent parents and wonder what it would have been like to have my daddy make me a custom perfume when I turned 16. Besides, the show contributed to one of my favorite news stories of the past year: The father of participant Ariel is being sued in federal court by investors who weren't sure where he'd gone with their money — until he showed up on MTV.

"Engaged & Underage," on the other hand, was actually occasionally sweet in its first season. Sure, a few of the couples seemed wildly unprepared for marriage, but others honestly acted like they were in their relationships for life. And for a pure awkward-moment-per-hour ratio, it can't be beat; anyone else see the episode where the girl asked her future mother-in-law to give her a bikini wax?

Joining those two is the fourth — yes, fourth — season of "Making the Band." This time, Diddy will be at work making an all-male R&B group. Tell me: Will you be checking out any of MTV's Monday shows this summer?

I hate sweet sixteen, but it's addictive once you start watching an episode... Engaged and Underage is boring. I want The Hills/Laguna Beach!

Am I the only one who gets sooo depressed watching engaged and underage? I think it's the saddest show ever.

I spent part of a day watching a few episodes during a marathon of the Sweet 16 crap...I must say, I had the biggest headache by the end. Fourth Making the Band?! I can't think of any of Sean Combs' bands, I guess mandy's right.

P Diddy just needs to give up on Making the Band, none of groups he puts together ever become popular!

I'm glad "Engaged & Underage" is back. I had not heard whether it would be or not 'til I saw it here on "What to TiVo!"

I will not be watching any of these shows b/c they make me sick. I weep for the children of the next generation.

I love Super Sweet 16. But probably for all the wrong reasons - it gives me telly-rage! I can shout at those horrible kids with the idiotic parents and not feel bad. It's like my very own therapy!:)
