Making the Band 3 concludes tonight.
Just over two months after its debut, Making the Band 3 comes to an end, as P Diddy selects from the nine remaining finalists to form a five-member girl group that will likely be forgotten before it even becomes known. Starting at noon ET today, MTV airs a marathon of episodes four through nine, episode 10 airs at 9:30, and then the one-hour finale debuts at 10. P Diddy, by the way, has signed a deal with MTV. According to Billboard, “MTV has signed a first-look production agreement with Bad Boy Entertainment and its founder, Sean ‘P. Diddy’ Combs … [who] will be called on for everything from developing and consulting to possibly appearing on shows.”
