MTV’s new Monday night lineup
Series premiere, beginning at 10 p.m., MTV
REALITY. MTV launches a brand new Monday night lineup on the back of their latest franchise prankster/pro skater, Rob Drydek. In “Ridiculousness” (10 p.m.), the “Rob & Big” star takes the role of snarkmaster, hosting an Internet clip show a la “Tosh.0” that revels in the rampant stupidity captured in videos posted to the Web.
COMEDY. At 10:30, horror-comedy “Death Valley” introduces the “Undead Task Force,” a new division of the LAPD created to take down the vampires, werewolves and zombies that freely roam California. This is what our “Twilight” obsession has led to, people!
REALITY. Immediately following, “Cuff’d” takes a much more serious look at law enforcement. This reality series, premiering at 11, documents the interaction between young perpetrators and the arresting officers driving them to central booking, where frank and sometimes funny conversations shed light on the choices that led to that moment.
