Those blockheads that you love to hate return with more antics as MTV2 doubles-down on their high ratings with a batch of new shows.

Charlamagne Tha God & Lil Duval Highlight MTV2's 2014 Lineup

MTV2 experienced one of its highest-rated calendar years ever, so with that said, their 2014 programming slate boasts some new shows that are pegged to some of their best franchise players.

Following the Season Four premiere of MTV's Guy Code, breakout star Andrew Schulz gets his own show in the form of a half-hour comedy series titled Jobs That Don't Suck.

Each week, Schulz will be joined by legendary restaurant mogul Eddie Huang (Fresh Off The Boat) and Nessa (Girl Code), as the three break down how to find your own dream job.

Meanwhile, MTV2 promises their two high-rated series, Wild 'N Out and Charlamagne and Friends will return in 2014. The Breakfast Club's charismatically outspoken Charlamagne tha God returns to the small screen with his show and will be joined by a variety of friends, as they give their uncut and unfiltered opinions on the biggest pop culture stories. The January 15 premiere will find tha God chatting it up with Ice Cube, Kevin Hart and Tika Sumpter about their new film, Ride Along.

The new season of Ain't That America with comedian Lil' Duval will also be returning that same night, as the down South funny man will entertain alongside New York Knicks' own J.R. Smith, Waka Flocka Flame, model Rosa Acosta, and The World Champion Judah Friedlander.

In addition to Jobs That Don't Suck, the rest of MTV2's 2014 line-up can be found below:

“Guy Code” (premieres April 2014): “Guy Code” is the ultimate guy’s guide to the laws of manhood, creating the ultimate playbook for all guys to follow. In the fourth season of “Guy Code,” the show will return its favorite cast members from the previous three seasons, as they revisit key topics with updated tips, insights and intelligence.

"Untitled Major League Baseball Series" (premieres April 2014): This new series will launch a multi-year programming partnership between MTV and the MLB, with the weekly show moving beyond game analysis, stats and highlights to showcase MLB athletes off the field, spotlighting the stars' personalities and passions through a series of player interviews and features, in addition to celebrity appearances. The series will be shot in New York City from inside the MLB Fan Cave, MLB's first-of-its-kind space that mixes baseball with music, pop culture, media, interactive technology and art.

Stay tuned as these shows promise to amp up the funny and the truth throughout this new year.

Cardi B Gets Driving Lesson, Performs For Senior Citizens During 'Carpool Karaoke' Segment

Cardi B was the latest guest on James Corden's Late Late Show segment, "Carpool Karaoke," and as expected, it was a helluva time.

The Grammy nominee ran through some of her hits with Corden, such as "Bodak Yellow," "Money," "Be Careful" and more. She discussed her transition from stripper to MC, which Corden attributed to "grinding and hustling for a long time.”

“A lot of these deejays was sleepin’ on me… they was frontin’ on the kid!” Cardi exclaimed. Cardi also discussed her childhood growing up in the Bronx, which included keeping a razor blade in her cheek just in case some crazy sh*t goes down, as well as her affinity for ASMR videos. She also performed at a senior citizens' home at the end of the clip to a rousing response.

Perhaps the best part of the segment was her attempt to drive. Facilitated by a conversation in which the two discussed her five luxury cars, Cardi hit a few cones and flags while trying to maneuver in and out during a lesson. She said that the car (a Range Rover) was a bit big for her, but her lack of driving skills period resulted in her hitting a camera during her attempt at parallel parking.

“I couldn’t rap about these cars because I didn’t own them,” she laughed before adding, "[Driving] is scary.”

Watch the entire segment above.

Former ABC President Channing Dungey Joins Netflix As VP Of Original Content

Former ABC president, Channing Dungey, is heading to Neflix. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Dungey will officially join the company early next year in a "newly created leadership role" as a vice president of original titles.

Dungey will work directly with fellow vp, Cindy Holland, and Netflix’s chief content officer, Ted Saranados. Her position involves overseeing the streaming network's current deals, which include the Obamas’ Higher Ground Productions company.

The move also re-teams Dungey with Shonda Rhimes’ and Black-Ish creator, Kenya Barriss, both of whom left ABC and signed with Netflix.

In addition, Dungey will oversee a group of executives who have worked on Narcos, House of Cards, and other big shows on the streaming network.

"I'm drawn to the forward-thinking, risk-taking and creative culture at Netflix, and the deeply talented people there, especially Ted and Cindy, with whom I’m excited to partner on setting the strategy for original content," Dungey said in a statement. "Given that ABC, the place I’ve called home for nearly 15 years, represents the gold standard of traditional broadcast, it feels like the perfect next step for me to join Netflix, the unparalleled leader in streaming. I'm invigorated by the challenges ahead and the opportunity to forge new relationships, and excited for the very welcome reunion with incredible talent."

In 2016, Dungey was named president of ABC, making her the first Black woman to lead any of the four major networks. She began her career with the company in 2004, and worked her way up to executive vice president of the network’s drama division developing hit shows such as Scandal, Quantico, Hot To Get Away with Murder and American Crime, before being promoted to network lead. Her exit from ABC came in November, shortly after firing Roseanne Barr for making racist comments.

Mahershala Ali Apologizes To Surviving Relatives of His 'Green Book' Character

After Green Book, the 2018 film chronicling the life of the famous jazz musician, Dr. Donald Waldridge Shirley was called a "symphony of lies" by the remaining family members, Mahershala Ali (who plays Shirley) has issued a private apology to the living relatives. Calling Dr. Shirley's nephew Edwin Shirley III and brother Maurice Shirley, Ali offered his regrets for the films facade.

"I got a call from Mahershala Ali, a very, very respectful phone call, from him personally," Edwin said. "He called me and my Uncle Maurice in which he apologized profusely if there had been any offense. What he said was, 'If I have offended you, I am so, so terribly sorry. I did the best I could with the material I had. I was not aware that there were close relatives with whom I could have consulted to add some nuance to the character.'"

The film depicted a black man (Shirley) and a racist Italian-American driver, Tony "Lip" Vallelonga who became unlikely friends after spending time on the road together, but according to Maurice, no such bond existed.  Instead, the two men hated each other, resulting in Vallelonga's eventual termination, Edwin said in an interview with Shadow And Act.

Though the film has received excellent reviews and academy award nominations, the film has been shrouded in scandal since hitting theaters Nov. 21.
