How Many F-Bombs Were Dropped At MTV Movie Awards?

… If you watched Sunday's MTV Movie Awards, also known as Twilight Fest 2010, then you may have noticed that a lot of people have potty mouths. The F-word was uttered more than 100 times (some bleeped, some not) over the course of the broadcast, prompting the ever-annoying Parents Television Council (PTC) to write a strongly worded letter to MTV. MTV has responded by issuing the following statement: "The MTV Movie Awards is a live televised event known for irreverent comedy and a party atmosphere where our guests speak more freely than they otherwise might." In other words, "F*** you, PTC." [Deadline Hollywood]

… A delay in Charlie Sheen's jail sentencing is threatening CBS' Two and a Half Men. Sheen, charged with assault against his wife, was supposed to plead guilty in the case as part of a deal between the two sides, but no such deal was reached and both sides just stared at the ground with their hands in their pockets. The judge then rescheduled the hearing for July 12, meaning further sentencing for Sheen could delay the filming of the next season of Two and a Half Men. [THR]

Steven Spielberg's upcoming Fox show Terra Nova is bound to be one of the most talked-about series of whenever it hits screens, so it needs a real good face to lead it. TV.com favorite Jason O'Mara (Life on Mars—the U.S. version) is in discussions to play protagonist Jim Shannon, and that's A-OK with us. O'Mara is like Mel Gibson back when the latter wasn't completely insane, and we'd love to see him go toe-to-Tyrannosaur with some dinosaurs. Make it happen! [EW]

Andy Whitfield, star of Starz' Spartacus, has been declared cancer-free after a scare with Stage 1 non-Hodgkins lymphoma, and is ready to return to work. And by work, we mean slicing dudes in half and bedding lots of wenches. Take that, cancer. [Deadline Hollywood]

Grey's Anatomy is probably upping two doctors to regular status next season. Jesse Williams, who plays one of the hot guys at the hot doctor factory, goes from recurring actor to star when the show returns for its seventh makeout session. Also in talks to be regularized is Sarah Drew. [EW]

Seinfeld has been off the air for more than a decade, but it's still raking in the cash in syndication. The comedy has made $2.7 BILLION since going dark. Not too shabby for a show about nothing. [NY Post]

Tropic Thunder is one of my favorite movies, so I liked all the Les Grossman bits.

Whether or not their guest would "speak more freely they otherwise might", they should still realize that they're on a prime-time broadcast and their audience includes a lot of kids. They should know better and behave a bit more like grown-ups.

I kinda wish Reed had been made a regular over April. I love both Sarah Drew and Nora Zehetner, but I thought Reed fit the show better.

I liked the Less Grossman part but I normally detest award shows due to the boredom factor.

Lol, I can imagine all of these pretween parents upset at the MTV awards, expecting it to have clean wholesome family entertainment (Jonas Brothers, Taylor Swift, Bieber ,The Twilight Cast the girl from I-Carly) instead they get the F-BOMB repeated all over the place. Well maybe it's a sign MTV is becoming respectable.

I loved the MTV awards except for the actual awards themselves. It was like watching the Teen Choice Awards, an absolute disgrace to actual quality films. I'm not a big Marky Mark fan but his part with WF was awesome.

I still watch Seinfeld twice a night before I fall asleep, such an amazing show.

I normally wouldn't care about what Charlie Sheen does but I like Two and a Half Men and wouldn't want his problems to mess with the show.
