The Real World San Diego ends tonight.
The drama that was The Real World San Diego ends tonight at 10 p.m. ET on MTV. Tonight’s episode, the 26th, will apparently include Robin Hibbard’s appearance in court for hitting a Marine, but the show will apparently avoid the alleged sexual assault that took place inside the house. The Chicago Sun-Times says the show “is choosing to steer clear when something truly interesting happens.” MSNBC’s Gael Fashingbauer Cooper writes that the series needs to face the fact that it “has been on a downward slide seldom seen on a show that constantly gets renewed.” She argues that MTV should “[set] every season in New York, a city that naturally draws ambitious and talented young people from all corners of the U.S. Ditch the hot tub, dump the lame group jobs, and cast not for cup size, but for intelligence.”
