(UPI) – MTV Monday announced plans to air a new reality series called “16 & Pregnant,” which will document the true stories of several pregnant teens.

The series is slated to debut June 11 and will be comprised of six one-hour episodes, the network said.images

“MTV has a long history of reflecting the lives of our viewers with compelling reality stories,” Tony DiSanto, MTV’s president of programming, said in a statement. “’16 & Pregnant’ follows the journey of six young women going through an immensely life-changing experience at such a young age. Each episode tells a new, unique story and shows the real-life challenges they face from dealing with family and friends to school and finances as new mothers. This is the real secret life of an American teenager.”

“Given that the teen birth rate is on the rise for the first time in a generation, MTV’s ’16 & Pregnant’ is extremely timely,” added Sarah Brown, chief executive officer of The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy. “We applaud MTV for using their unique and compelling style of storytelling to bring this important programming to their devoted audience. The show provides an honest portrayal of the challenges of too-early pregnancy and parenthood. The stories in ’16 & Pregnant’ are full of hope, heartbreak, and real-life consequences and should be a must viewing for teens nationwide.”

As in all MTV programming, I am certain this will be done in good taste.

    Just hope they don’t glamorize it like that movie, Juno.

  2. Hyph3n says:

    God forbid that I stick up for MTV… but mix in with the brainless chatter are some serious shows about being a teenager.

    I betcha this show will also show how tough it is to be a teenager and a mom- along with a fair amount of mindless chatter.

  3. Improbus says:

    The title of the show should be: Life Styles of Young Ignorant Sluts. Sigh. Anyone remember when they used to play videos?

  4. McCullough says:

    #3. Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! Yeah, let’s pay kids for bad behavior. Great idea!!!

  5. MrMiGu says:

    With over 6 Billion people, I doubt we are very close to a survival problem. Unless of course youre talking about consuming our limited resources or creating even more pollution, then yes, we definately need more kids raised by parent without a high school education

  6. skunkman62 says:

    well i hope MTV at least answers the question: “How is Babby Formed?”

  7. McCullough says:

    #6. He’s worried about white Americans only.

  8. cornholer says:

    I think it will be called “child sluts”

  9. Benjamin says:

    Will it show how their whole education will be disturbed dooming themselves and their offspring to a life of poverty? If not, then it is not reality TV.

  10. Vesper says:

    Let’s hope it’s put back to back with one of the ‘I’m rich and deserve a $30k Sweet 16 B-Day Party’ “reality” shows

  11. Special Ed says:

    The show should be called “Hoosier Daddy.”

  12. lock_down says:

    The lad who got the girl on the far left pregnant must have been intoxicated at the time…

  13. Nappy Headed Ho says:

    You know most of those babies will be black.

  14. Improbus says:

    #13 lock_down – Agreed.

    #16 Alfred1 – Alfred do you have multiple personality disorder? It is interesting that on some of you posts you sound sane yet in others you are clearly not anywhere near reality. Check your meds.

  15. they got bristled says:

    I have the same issue with this as with all reality shows that use minors

    What these kids do and say in front of the camera and microphones will be out there for all the world to see over and over no matter how they change there lives or values people can always see these tapes.
    Heck even juvenile criminals least get a clean slate when there depth to society are paid and they turned into adults but kids who’s parents signed the release for them to do a reality show have no chance at a reset.

  16. McCullough says:

    #14. #5 “Define how giving birth to a baby rather than aborting them is bad behavior… ”

    Sorry, I don’t debate idiots.

  17. MrMiGu says:

    Just what we need, more uneducated, ignorant kids raising children of their own. Though, I can see why you would want this as it creates many candidates to follow your beleifs.

  18. #23
    Alfred1 were you home schooled?

    WTF U talking about

  19. Olo Baggins of Bywater says:

    Alfred: The proposal is consistent with loon premises…children are not taught abstinence

    Where is this happening? Seriously, what sex-ed curriculum does this?

    Were you high during that discussion a week or so ago? Drunk? On a ‘stupid’ binge? WTF?

  20. eaze says:

    #15 wins lol

    I wonder how many of these dumb ass girls, that would have got an abortion, don’t because they want a chance to be on the show.

    You know you’ve failed in life when your daughter appears on this show.

  21. RTaylor says:

    You’re about fifty, and your last child is in high school. You are dog tired weary of dealing with teenagers. Then you get the wonderful news that a new born will be dumped on you. You have already lost a bundle in the market, and your company is looking to cut high salaried employees. Your healthcare policy has increased 20% while benefits have been sliced. You can’t even afford the mental heath care you need to deal with the crap. The only pro life question you have is whether or not you should blow your brains out and end it all.

  22. Jägermeister says:

    Preggo HoochiesMaking America dumber, one kid at a time…

  23. Benjamin says:

    There are a lot of couples looking to adopt. You are dooming your child to poverty if you are sixteen, have no high school diploma, and no job (McDonald’s doesn’t count).

    Your best bet is to give the child to one of those couples looking to adopt.

  24. Special Ed says:

    Couldn’t MTV be charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor?

    Don’t these young girls know their vagina will end up looking like a wizard’s sleeve?

  25. Alex says:

    You know, there was a point where I was willing to wave off Alfred1’s posts as just extremist religionism.

    Now, though, I see he’s just batshit fucking insane.

    Sorry, mate, your posts may have gotten coherent past the early teens, but once you start espousing unmarried teenage girls who can’t support themselves as a societal *benefit*, you clearly have no concept whatsoever of how a society functions, or how these people’s lives are truly like.

    Also – you should check your data. The pregnancy rates among Christian youths who have pledged virginity is infinitely worse (read, higher) than the pregnancy rate among teenagers who are taught how to properly use condoms and taught how to practice sex safely. This is not in “Liberal-land”, or the Coastal states, or anything like that. It’s in reality, a place you should check in with every once in a while. It’s not as bad as they make you think.

  26. Angel H. Wong says:

    #38 Alfred1,

    “The planet could easily support many times the number alive today.”

    Duh, if we all switch our diets to hay-based kibbles maybe.

    You spent too much time in the cave with that paranoid Batman.

  27. Bushed says:

    Hey – lets call it the Bristol Palin Project!

    You know what I like about Bristol – she puts out! We have proof!

  28. Special Ed says:

    #40 – Yeah, apparently if Bristol had as many sticking out of her as she had stuck in her she’d look like a porcupine.

  29. GF says:

    China will be outsourcing to us very soon. Stupid girls.

  30. John E. Quantum says:

    I’ll TiVo this program and watch the new Fox show “Baby Daddy Removal Team”
