Good news. Do you like watching rich idiots talk about nonexistent problems and tote dogs around like they’re concealed handguns? Then you may be interested that The Hills COULD get their run extended.
MTV has always had success with trapping people together and capturing the foibles of a modern existence, but when they figured out they could remake the OC without characters who are as layered and three-dimensional, that was when they hit their Renaissance. The Hills. Unfortunately, a new group of upstarts is displacing the rich useless people on The Hills – the poor useless people that populate shows such as Jersey Shore.
The Hills has slipping ratings, primarily dude to Lauren Conrad’s absence, but it might not be the final season – due to the producers’ interest in developing a Kristin Cavallari/Brody Jenner romance. Another 12 episodes could be ordered up.
Oh, for the love of God, just take this show out in the back like it’s Carlos Mencia, and shoot it. It’s not like we can learn so much more from the pathos of people lying out, living off their parents’ money and not accomplishing anything. Can we just let the series end and have these people fall into obscurity?
It’s going to be pretty funny to watch.
