Over the years, many critics have blasted MTV for the creation of the Teen Mom franchise.
These individuals have questioned whether it was a great idea to make celebrities out of young women who were expecting babies, thereby glorifying a development that may be the most challenging one a person can face.
It’s now clear that the cable network has considered these objections, weighed them carefully…
… and then totally and completely ignored such chatter for the sake of ratings.
On Monday night, MTV debuted the first teaser for Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant, a redundantly named spinoff of Teen Mom; which, itself, was a spinoff of 16 and Pregnant.
(Remember the days when MTV actually aired music videos? Neither do we.)
According to the official network announcement, the series will track the lives of five expecting women and “show the highs and lows of their pregnancy journeys — and the unbelievable changes they endure after the babies are born.
“From excitement to fear, this group of girls will take viewers inside their emotional lives.”
Because this is exactly what vulnerable teenager who are about to become parents really need: to share their emotional lives with millions of strangers.
MTV goes on to write that “Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2 women have shown us through the years… [that] worlds are about to change forever and [when] it’s time to “mom up.”
Yes, mom up.
MTV just turned parenthood into a catchphrase.
We’re shocking it didn’t include a hashtag along with it.
Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant will premiere on Monday, March 12 at 10/9c, following a new installment of Teen Mom OG.
