The third season of Making the Band 2, which follows P. Diddy’s creation of the hip-hop group Da Band, debuts tonight on MTV at 10 p.m. ET. As MTV says, this season, “Diddy moves all six group members into his house.” The group has sold more than half a million copies of its album, Too Hot for TV, and last season the show had “an average of 2.3 million viewers tuning into each episode,” USA TODAY reports. The paper promises that “The hissy fits, fistfights, spectacular tantrums and shopping sprees of the six kids from various backgrounds, trying to make it as a band under P. Diddy’s supervision, continue tonight.”
