MTV has pulled the plug on their comedy drama THE HARD TIMES OF R.J. BERGER. The music network decided to cancel the series after ratings plummeted shortly after The Wonder Years/Superbad hybrid showcased its second season opener this past March, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The show, from creators Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg, chronicled main character R.J. Berger (Paul Iacono), who is a well endowed high school sophomore, and his days at Ohio’s Pinkerton High School as an unpopular teen.

Upon cancelling, MTV has since picked up two new scripted comedy shows, Death Valley, to air this month on August 29, and I Just Want My Pants Back, set to air next year.
