We can only hope that this deal was inked before execs had a look at their (shudder) Family Christmas Special on ABC, but MTV has picked up another season of Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica. In couples therapy, perhaps. Not only will they be back, but Jessica’s sister Ashlee’s show (which we weren’t even aware of) will also be returning in January. But wait, there’s more. The network has also commissioned a reality show – tentatively titled The Nick Lachey Project – with cameras following Lachey as he launches his solo career. And in a completely different series from, say, Newlyweds, cameras will live with Blink 182’s Travis Barker and his former beauty queen wife, Shanna Moaklar, in Meet the Barkers.
