RJ Berger Crew Proud of Perverting Children

RJ Berger Crew Proud of Perverting Children
MTV’s new “comedy” The Hard Times of RJ Berger is one of the most explicit programs on expanded basic cable aimed at teen viewers. In addition to the show’s premise – RJ is a teenage boy who becomes wildly popular after exposing himself to the entire school – each and every episode is larded with dozens of instances of sexual innuendo. The program only premiered on June 6th, yet has already twice been named PTC’s Worst Cable TV Show of the Week.

Any normal adult would be ashamed of producing such programming; but those involved with RJ Berger delight in it. In an interview with the New York Times, MTV Senior Vice President for Series Development, Liz Gateley, crowed that “We want to do stuff that’s rebellious and noisy,” while RJ Berger’s creator/writer/producer David Katzenberg said, “We definitely want to be that show that younger kids have to sneak into their TV room or their parents’ room when they’re not supposed to.” And actor Adam Cagley (who plays Kevin on the show) recently boasted on his Twitter feed, “Hard Times has been named Worst Cable Show of the Week by the Parents Television Council. YES! We piss off parents!” In addition to being irritated, parents should also be aware of the sentiments of those who are providing entertainment for their children.
