"This is the kind of loser that gives our show a bad name," Max Joseph indignantly proclaims before storming off-camera in the most recent episode of Catfish. So yeah, this one was a doozy.
This season, Nev Schulman and his camera-claw buddy Max have encountered lying family members, talented schemers and scorned celebs, but they were still shocked by the web of lies they unraveled this time. The saga starts with John, a city boy born and raised in South Detroit, also known as Dearborn, Michigan. John comes to our Catfish connoisseurs with the usual tale of finding love online and wanting verification that this paramour is the real deal.

Sometimes celebrities really are just like "normal people." Not only do they buy groceries and go to the park, they can also get caught up in the tangled web of a catfish, as Rent actress Tracie Thoms did in the latest episode of Catfish.
The star reached out to Nev Schulman and Max Joseph for help following up on a deceiving Twitter fan. By the time our boys arrived, Tracie had already discovered that one of her Twitter followers was pretending to be someone she was not. When the actress tried to confront her fan "Sammie" about the behavior, the mystery Tweeter pulled a vanishing act, leaving Tracie with plenty of unanswered questions.

This Catfish isn't about love, it's all business.
Unlike previous season 3 episodes, number four doesn't involve a romance that began on the web. Lucille believes her online connection could be a key to finding a job in the music industry. Unfortunately, even before Nev Schulman and Max Joseph show up, Lucille has already discovered a few ... fishy details about her supposed "business parter," Kidd Cole. Worse yet, this Catfish is getting Mr. Kim Kardashian involved, claiming he is the youngest artist under Kanye West's record label GOOD Music.

Catfish is officially a thing according to Merriam-Webster.
As this term swims over from colloquialism to certified word, Catfish: The TV Show presses on as well. In episode three, viewers are treated to another story of young love, this time blossoming between a bartender and rap hopeful through the alluring world of Instagram.

On Wednesday, the MTV show kicked off its third season with Nev Schulman and his camera-toting buddy Max Joseph attempting to hook an especially slippery "catfish" – a person who creates a fake social media account using someone else's photos to build online relationships.

Think you don't have anything in common with people who have autism?
MTV wants you to think again.
In observance of World Autism Awareness Month, the network is featuring a pair of brothers diagnosed with the disorder in a True Life documentary special.
Brad and Kenny Benjamin live with their parents in Bowie, Md., and are taking steps towards greater independence – they're learning to shop for groceries and cook their own meals, preparing to get their driver's licenses and increasing their social interaction by throwing a dinner party.

SPOILER ALERT: The text below reveals major plot points to the Monday, March 17, episode of MTV's Teen Wolf
MTV is launching a special website for angst-ridden fans of its Teen Wolf series to collectively mourn the sudden death of one of the show's main characters in Monday night's episode.
Immediately after the third season's penultimate episode ended at 11 p.m. ET, MTV had the site TeenWolfMemorial.com ready to offer solace for people upset that the character Allison Argent wound up on the wrong end of a sword wielded by a mythical Japanese demon.
Argent, played by actress Crystal Reed, is the ex-girlfriend of Scott McCall, the drama's lead character.
Argent's death shouldn't entirely be a surprise; MTV has been advertising that one of the show's main characters would be killed off. The network kept that character's identity a secret, although the announcement that someone was doomed launched plenty of online speculation.
