MTV‘s The Hard Times of RJ Berger just got renewed after getting a boost in ratings from a little tweet Justin Bieber sent out. Biebs sent out a generic tweet about liking the show, see below:
And after that little tweet, the show got a 9 percent jump in ratings, and a 14 percent jump the following week…delivering 993,000 viewers. Want to know what kid of numbers Jersey Shore gets? 5.3 million. I’m so glad that MTV is committed to their scripted programming, otherwise RJ would’ve been dust.
So moral of the story is if you want to get anything done just have Justin Bieber endorse it. He has super powers. Could you imagine the political power he could have over kids to get them involved? As I digress…
I guess what I’m trying to say is that Biebs was able to save RJ…it’s not the world, but at least he’s saving TV shows one tweet at a time. Congrats on the renewal, RJ! And, as for Biebs…jury’s still out.
I’ll have the RJ set visit posted for you guys later this week…promise!
