16 and Pregnant: Is It Bad That I'm So Bored With This?

I tried watching Felicia's episode of 16 and Pregnant last night, and I just couldn't stand it.

I feel bad for Felicia, of course, since she had some tough times with her pregnancy, schooling and boyfriend, but the show is just so 'been there, done that' at this point.

16 and Pregnant, I think, has run its course. Not that it dramatizes pregnancy, because it shows the negative side of the situation, but we've seen what feels like the same episode a dozen times.

Having never had a baby, I don't fully understand the struggle of these girls, and I'm not trying to lump them together into a category, but haven't we seen enough of the type of teenager MTV casts on the show - one with lots of extra problems aside from her pregnancy? MTV - you've done enough with this show. It's time to stop.

Do you agree? Disagree?
