MTV is also making several other shifts to its reality programming, intended to distance it from other networks by focusing on what MTV calls "dramatic storytelling." Making the Band 2 has been picked up, and several other reality projects such as Surf Girls, Duets and the streetball-focused Who's Got Game? will be debuting in the next 12 months.
We wish MTV good luck in revitalizing the Osbournes "franchise." Frankly, we're not sure what Ozzie and his family haven't already done on TV that could be shown in a third season ... except act intelligently, and that appears to be beyond their capabilities.
