MTV Announces ‘Adorableness,’ Yet Another ‘Ridiculousness’ Spin-Off: “These Are Adorable Clips With A Bite”

“Get ready! This show will be playing constantly on MTV before ya know it!”

MTV’s long-running Internet clip show Ridiculousness is getting its own network a third spin-off. 

A month after announcing Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi as the host of the franchise’s second spin-off, Messyness, and nearly seven months after food-themed Deliciousness premiered on MTV, comedian James Davis has been tapped to host Adorableness, The Wrap reports. 

“No giant laptop AND we’re all sitting down together. This is totally different than those other shows… “

The new show promises “the cutest, snuggliest and most adorable clips ever,” though viewers are warned “it’s not all fluff.” 

“ … cute kids will turn sour, fluffy dogs will attack and little old ladies may just curse like sailors – these are adorable clips with a bite,” the series description reads. 

As with other shows in the franchise – which began in 2011 with Rob Dyrdek‘s ‘Ridiculousness’ –- ‘Adorableness’ will feature a panel joining host James as he breaks down the viral clips. Panelists for ‘Adorableness’ will include actress Alyson Hannigan, RuPaul’s Drag Race judge Ross Mathews and Dulcé Sloan of The Daily Show. 

Even the panelists are surprised this show is happening…

‘Adorableness’ will debut with back-to-back episodes at 7 p.m. ET/PT every night for a week starting Monday, July 19. (If it’s anything like its big sister ‘Ridiculousness,’ it will eventually play on a loop forever on MTV.)

  1. MTV really needs to come up with original content. Seriously. The only shows they have been airing for the last like five years has been ridiculousness, Teen Mom, The Challenge, and Catfish. And then they had the brilliant idea of rebooting The Hills, which has seriously been so BORING I had to give up on it. Please come up with something new.


  2. But whyyyy. I love watching Ridiculousness but I really don’t understand the point of these spin offs.


  3. When I saw the headline, the first thing I though was they’ll find a way to make it trashy. Then I read the article and find that’s exactly the plan. Figures.
