Tuesdays @ 9:30pm from 19 July

Season two picks up right where it left off and promises viewers more drama and laughs as the hilarious half-hour series continues to follow the life of RJ Berger, an awkward 15-year old late-blooming outcast with an anatomical gift. Last season, fans watched as RJ (Paul Iacono) left the girl of his dreams, Jenny Swanson (Amber Lancaster) at the winter formal, to lose his virginity to his stalker-ish friend Lily Miran (Kara Taitz), as she lay in her hospital bed moments before flat lining.  Will Lily live or die–and if Lily lives, will RJ choose her or Jenny?  

With a possible new love triangle, fresh faces and guest appearances by Paris Hilton, popular rock band Weezer and “Jersey Shore’s” Vinny Guadagnino —  season two is sure to bring more outrageous moments and antics from RJ and his peers at Pinkerton High.

Premieres Thursdays @ 9:30pm from September 9th 

The Hard Times of RJ Berger orbits the hilariously-hellish lives of a deeply unpopular 15 year-old and his scheming, sex-obsessed best friend.

Other than pining after the girl of his dreams, receiving daily beatings from the meanest jock in school, and evading the stalker-ish advances of the crazy girl in school, there really isn’t much excitement in RJ’s life. That is, until his anatomical gift is accidentally exposed to the entire school.
