Update for readers: We’ve got more information along with an interview with The CollegeHumor Show’s director in an updated post here.

First, Heidi and Spencer; now, Jake and Amir.

The College Humor Show was announced today as part of MTV’s slate of new series. But contrary to reports, while it is based on the popular web site, it is not a reality show.

It was described in Variety as a show “which takes viewers inside the frat-like offices of the web’s Collegehumor.com” and by The Hollywood Reporter as “a look at the ‘offbeat’ workplace of the twentysomething-run web site CollegeHumor.com.” But it struck us as odd that a site so good a creating successful original comedy shorts for the web would go the reality TV show route, so we sent CHTV writer Dan Gurewitch a note.

Turns out we were right. In an email, Gurewitch wrote that: “[T]he press release is a bit misleading — it’s a scripted, narrative comedy show that takes place in our office, starring the CH staff, and occasionally cuts to outside sketches. We’re really excited!”

Here’s a video sketch announcing the show:

  1. ok… i like the potential here. good production quality. and somewhat entertaining (but sorry, it’s not laugh out loud and a bit too predictable )

    ill keep my eyes on it

  8. Wow…this show seriously sucks…it’s not even funny…I can’t believe MTV invested in this show. The characters try way to hard to try to be funny. I will never watch this show again and it definitely will not be on the air for long…
