WARNING: ENTHUSIASM AHEAD.
Truly blown away by how hilarious this was. I had to stop and take a few extended breaks because I was laughing so hard and didn't want to miss anything. Starring and co-created by former Youtube sensation and (immensely talented in his own right) stand-up comic Bo Burnham, the show centers around Zach Stone (Burnham) forgoing college and using all his savings to make a reality show about himself. It premieres on MTV this Thursday, but the first episode is out there. This comes so highly recommended.

EDIT: Bo also recently did a reddit AMA that, amongst many other things, talked fairly in depth about the upcoming show.

I'm skeptical of anything MTV does, since the last thing I've found enjoyable on the channel was Beavis and Butthead, but I like Bo Burnham, and I hold Cody's recommendations in high regard so I will be checking this out.

Bo's rationale behind the show being on MTV might assuage your worries a little bit:

So I figured, where better to start this conversation about fame and its strange impacts on young people than the belly of the beast!

"Hangin' with Zach!" followed immediately by the crash into the bannister made my chest hurt. I was laughing so hard, haha.

I just watched the pilot. I'm a big Bo Burnham fan, Words Words Words had me in stitches when I first saw it. Anyway I thought the pilot was all right and had its moments. The show definitely has a lot of potential and I'll be checking it out again in the future.

I'll probably end up watching because I like Bo. I'm not a fan of scripted MTV shows, so this could go either way for me.

Both. I suppose I shoulda just kept my mouth shut, but I didn't even so much as crack a smile during the promo, and I'm not a Bo Burnham fan. I think he's way too internet to be funny. I thought about smiling for that Miley Cyrus joke though.
