About the Show

The Hard Times of RJ Berger is an American television comedy series created by David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith which follows RJ Berger, an unpopular sophomore at the fictional Pinkerton High School in Ohio who has an exceptionally large penis.

The series aired in the USA on MTV from 6 June, 2010 to 30 May, 2011. There are 24 half-hour episodes in two seasons.

The Hard Times of RJ Berger premiered in South Africa on DStv's MTV channel on Monday 5 September 2011, at 22h00. New episodes broadcast weekly. There are 12 episodes in the first season.

Synopsis

The Hard Times of RJ Berger orbits the hilariously-hellish lives of a deeply unpopular 15 year-old (Paul Iacono) and his scheming, sex-obsessed best friend, Miles Jenner (Jareb Dauplaise).

Other than pining after the girl of his dreams, Jenny Swanson (Amber Lancaster), receiving daily beatings from the meanest jock in school, Max Owens (Jayson Blair), and evading the stalker-ish advances of Lily Miran (Kara Taitz), there really isn't much excitement in RJ's life.

That is, until his anatomical gift is accidentally exposed to the entire school.

In a single moment, RJ goes from anonymous to infamous, and for the first time in his life, he feels a tiny sliver of confidence. Swept up in this man-sized wave of recognition, we'll watch RJ claw his way out of the popularity basement.

Whether it's trying to get laid, dealing with his bizarre parents, or simply navigating the treacherous waters of sophomore year, RJ will live out the stories - good, bad and ugly - that we all remember from high school.

One mis-adventure at a time, we'll see him grow from a shy, awkward boy into a slightly less shy and awkward young man.

Part The Wonder Years and part Superbad, The Hard Times of RJ Berger is a loud, funny, raunchy, sexy look at the life of lovable loser.

The series was created by David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith.
