TV Preview: The Real World, MTV, 10 tonight.
Will Eric ever get it on with Julie? Will Kevin like, you know, ever get his poetry published? And will Heather hit the charts with her rap single, The System Sucks?
For answers to these and other unimportant questions, you can tune into The Real World, an MTV true-life soap opera premiering in its second season tonight at 10.
The Real World is billed as just that. Series creators Mary-Ellis Bunim (a veteran of Santa Barbara and other daytime soaps) and Jon Murray rented a spiffy loft in Manhattan, scouted around for seven telegenic young people to live in it, and turned on the camera.
Call it cinema semi-verite.
