He tweeted: "Re: The MTV Awards. I wasn't really mad we didn't win. So I would never diss the actors who won. Not even Paul Walker. Seri...

Meet MTV2's Comedy Star Lil Duval
Roland "Lil Duval" Powell has become a comedy fixture on MTV2 with his appearances on Guy Court and Guy Code, so it was no surprise when the network handed him his own show. Having just wrapped the second season of Ain't That America With Lil Duval and with season four of Guy Code on the horizon, Duval phoned into BFTV to talk about being the face of a TV program and the strong relationship he enjoys with the network.

"It's surreal," he reflected. "I'd never thought I'd have my own show, let alone with my name in [the title]. It's almost like I'm pinching myself."

Ain't That America sees ...

Earlier this month, MTV announced a pick-up for season four of the hit show, Teen Wolf—even before the second half of the third season begins airing in January.

Dylan O’Brien, who plays Stiles, and Linden Ashby, who plays his father, appeared at New York Comic Con to discuss the pick-up and what fans can expect.

I got a couple quick minutes to talk with O’Brien, as well as with executive producer Jeff Davis at the event. Here’s what they had to say.

If you haven’t had a chance to watch Teen Wolf because you heard the first season wasn’t very good, you’re missing out. It’s quickly bec...

'Awkward' Review: Episode 'The Gift'

October 23rd, 2013 8:46am EDT
On the first half of season three, Awkward’s constantly worrying protagonist, Jenna, devolved from a thoughtful but invisible girl to an extremely unlikeable character. Her thoughts became solely about her own actions and feelings, lacking the empathy she felt in the first two seasons. Then she cheated on Matty, who spent the entire season proving that he was a fantasy boyfriend, with Collin, a guy who was mysterious to her simply because he took writing classes and cared about art. Way to be a cliché, Jenna.

Too bad the midseason premiere had to begin with everybody celebrating Jenna. It’...
