For his latest movie, Seth Rogen invited five of his closest friends over to James Franco’s house to hole up for a few weeks as the world crumbled around them. And, in the end, a lot of moviegoers wanted to be a fly on the wall in that house.
This Is the End didn’t quite grab the No. 1 spot at the box office this weekend (we all knew how the Superbad-vs.-Superman battle would turn out), but it did score an impressive $33 million-plus debut, holding it down in second place and already recovering its $32 million budget.

The gang behind the hilarious film This is the End did this great parody, mashing their recent film with MTV's The Real World. The short is very funny and extremely vulgar, so be careful where you watch it.
This Is The End is currently out in theaters, and make sure to check it out when you get a chance. It's easily one of the funniest films I've seen this year. If you have a sick and twisted sense of humor like I do, you'll really enjoy it.

As if Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's directorial debut featuring Rogen, James Franco and Michael Cera poking fun at their own celebrity wasn't meta enough, the funny crew behind the comedy has taken it to a whole other level with a hilarious bit of cross-promotion that transplants the main cast to the set of MTV's "The Real World." Read More: 'This Is the End': Sly Critique of Fame or Inside Joke? While "This Is the End" largely transpires within Franco's cavernous Hollywood home, "The Real World" parody confines the boys to Portland, where the current season of the show is set.

It may have been their final three days together on the season finale of "The Real World: Portland," but that didn't mean it was too late to try and throw someone out of the house. Nia's behavior had been getting more and more erratic -- she had just physically attacked Johnny and Avery -- and so the house had a vote to see if she would get the boot.
Unfortunately for Johnny and Avery, the vote didn't go their way. So instead, they decided to leave the house early.
“I got exactly what I f*cking wanted. Averey and Johnny are clearly not gonna stay here," Nia said triumphantly.
Jessica's confessional made it look like she may have been afraid to vote Nia out. She said, "It’s very scary to me that Nia’s so violent and if I say, ‘Nia needs to go home,’ she might make »

MTV’s “Teen Mom,” “Teen Wolf” and other youth-skewing TV fare are now playing on mobile devices — but fans will get full access only if they’re lucky enough to have a pay TV provider currently on board with Viacom’s TV Everywhere program.
The new MTV app for Apple’s iPad and iPhone, skedded for Thursday release, will include access to current-season shows and older titles (“iconic retro” were cabler’s words) like “Beavis and Butt-head,” “Daria” and “The Real World.”
“You’ll see it focusing much more on our current franchises,” said Kristin Frank, exec VP of connected content for Viacom Music and Logo Group.
The “three-in-one” MTV app offers full-length TV episodes, short-form digital content and a second-screen Connect feature that displays Twitter comments, provides live discussions and synchronizes content (such as trivia, video and photos) with on-air programming. “The goal is to get fans to use »

Things are getting serious after last week's "Real World: Portland" brawl. In an exclusive preview clip from tonight's season finale, Johnny and Avery organize a house meeting to vote on whether Nia should be kicked out.
"It's not safe. As long as Nia is in this house, we're not staying," Johnny says.
Later, we see Nia packing her stuff into boxes as the roommates gather in the living room for their house meeting to decide her fate.
MTV's official description for the episode provides more details on what's to come, and it looks like Nia's not going down without another fight.
As the roommates prepare to say goodbye, at least one roommate may be forced to leave the house early. Old hostilities between Nia and Jordan re-emerge, this time with Nia threatening to have Jordan “taken care of.”
Do you think Nia should have to leave "The Real World"? Let »

This Is the End opens today, and you should totally go see it. In a clever bit of cross-promotion, a new parody has This Is the End stars Seth Rogen, James Franco, Craig Robinson, Jay Baruchel, and Danny McBride stuck in a Portland The Real World house with Portlandia stars Joi Niemeyer and Averey Tressler co-star, and while their fans might be a bit disappointed that all of the jokes come from the guys, it's still a damn fine parody of The Real World. It also shows off the great comic dynamic fans will see in This Is the End without giving away any jokes from the movie. Hit the jump to check out the parody. The Real World: Portland finale also airs today in case you care. Via MTV. »

In theaters today is the new comedy This is the End starring James Franco, Jonah Hill, Craig Robinson, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel and Danny McBride among others and today a This is the End spoof edition of "The Real World" has been released and it previews pretty much everything I disliked about the movie. In my review I wrote, "I don't know what it is about the 'white trash' schtick McBride is known for that people find funny, but someone swearing just to swear and talking about 'jizzing' all over the walls for five minutes isn't funny to me." When it comes to swearing, over the course of the following video's six minute running time I counted 32 instances of the word "f**k" being used to zero comedic effect and instead of McBride "jizzing" all over the apartment he pisses all over the apartment. Comedy!!! I actually quite liked the movie, »

The end is now. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg make their directorial debut on the big screen as their apocalyptic comedy This is The End hits theaters everywhere today. And if there were any younger audiences who weren't already aware of the film, MTV helped out a little with the cross-promotion The Real World: This is The End Edition. Using the only staple the network has left (since music videos just went out the window a long time ago), a couple people from "The Real World: Portland" get into disagreements with the cast of This is The End including Rogen, Jay Baruchel, James Franco and more. Here's The Real World: This is The End Edition straight from MTV: This is the End is written and directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (who wrote Superbad together) and follows Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel attending a party at James Franco »

There are riches to be found in niches. Just ask some of today’s top cable networks, which have zeroed in on underserved audiences with great success.
As the broadcast networks continue to lose audience share while aiming for the widest swath of viewers, cablers have been looking under every rock for interesting stories. And when they’ve found them, and turned them into network-defining reality series, with more and more examples of such cable shows needing only to draw a few million in the right demo to beat the broadcasters head to head.
“Cable is a little more willing to experiment and come at things from different angles,” says Dirk Hoogstra, exec VP and g.m. of History and H2. “But now, we feel it really is a level playing field. If you find the right project at the right time, you can beat anybody.”

For unscripted TV producers, manipulation — and even downright staging of events — is the new normal.
With the necessity to balance production budgets paired with an audience (and network) demand for louder, more entertaining content, the landscape of the unscripted space has changed over the last several years. The development of characters is key in the new reality, where boisterous personalities — be they Snooki, Honey Boo Boo or any of the bearded men from Duck Dynasty — can be plugged into structured scenarios and nail bold, funny moments — which, in the end, translates to good TV.
And although the manipulation of reality has prompted lawsuits and lots of tabloid press, viewers don’t seem to mind.
Duck Dynasty — cited by many in the TV biz as one of the most heavily produced shows of the reality bunch — broke ratings records for A&E, pulling almost 10 million viewers during its season three finale. »

As Americans celebrate the nation's independence on July 4, MTV will also honor its own origins as a station that started out focusing primarily on music. Hearkening back to the days before "Jersey Shore," "Teen Mom" and "Awkward," MTV is joining forces with VH1 and Cmt for "Music Independence Day," which aims to draw attention to emerging musical artists. See video: 'This Is the End' Crew Spends the Apocalypse on MTV's 'The Real World' On July 3 from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., the three networks will highlight new artists, as well as »

"The Real World: Portland" house is getting five famous new cast members during Wednesday's season finale. Seth Rogen, James Franco, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson and Jay Baruchel will guest star on a parody of the long-running MTV reality series, with current cast members Averey-Lee Jane and Joi Niemeyer, which will air in four parts during commercial breaks to promote their new comedy, "This Is the End."

The cast of This Is the End has stopped being polite and started to get real. In anticipation of this week's release of the movie, the cast is starring in a parody of The Real World: Portland, starring two of its actual cast members, Averey and Joi. This isn't your average season, though. Danny McBride is peeing in the hot tub, James Franco gets super pissed when someone leaves the toilet seat up, and everyone is having inappropriate relationships with the peanut butter. It's pretty hilarious, and a good taste of what This Is the End audiences are in for. Watch now! »

This weekend's This Is The End started off as the short "Jay and Seth vs The Apocalypse," which was essentially about what happens when Jay Baruchel and Seth Rogen stop being polite and start getting real. because the world has ended outside their door. Of course, that's a concept that started more than 20 years ago with The Real World, so it was only inevitable that This Is The End and The Real World would cross paths eventually, through this clever bit of cross-promotion that cropped up online today. I'm not currently watching The Real World: Portland, so I'm taking their word for it that these are actual current housemates Avery-Lee and Joi-- their negligible acting skills but willingness to get into screaming matches certainly suggest it. But the presence of the hot tub, the scene in which they all decide to lay down the house rules, and especially the »
And that's not all - we also have a look at the flick's international red band trailer.

MTV is bringing back "The Challenge" this summer with "The Challenge: Rivals II." 16 men and 16 women will battle it out in teams of two, trying to win the money in Thailand.
What's the twist? Each team will be made up of two bitter enemies that will have to work together in order to win the Challenge. The teams need to decide which is more important: an old grudge or a whole bunch of money?
Hosted by Tj Lavin, "The Challenge: Rivals II" will feature such teams as bad boy Ct and the manipulative Wes, Frank and Johnny (two guys who have never met but already hate each other), Challenge vet Paula and Emily (the ex of Paula's hook-up), and former Challenge friends Diem and Aneesa.
Even with all those old dramas coming into play, it won't be long before the new dramas take over.
Check out all of the teams »
