The New Dr. Drew? Dan Savage Gets New MTV Show!

| Filed under: MTVReality TV

We hope so! We think he gives very good advice and we certainly like what he stands for.

Dan Savage is best known as an advice columnist and a contributor to The Onion. You may also remember him from the special MTV did on the It Gets Better Project, as Dan was a major element to its success.

Having seen what he can do already, MTV has ordered a pilot called Savage Love, in which Dan would be the star. Cameras are slated to follow Dan as he tours college campuses, taking questions from students about sex and relationships. His advice can be brutally honest, which we imagine the network sees as a bankable attribute and Dan doesn't shy away from being a bit graphic when talking about sex.

Pair this with Skins and you've got one hell of a lineup on Monday nights. (The PTC's heads will explode!)

We'd love to see what he would do with his own show. He's definitely a personality.

Think U would watch his show?

    I used to read the Savage Love articles all the time, I can't imagine how the stuff he says is going to be on TV.

    dan savage is best know for being an original contributor to the Seattle newspaper "The Stranger" with his Savage Love column.

    I've been reading his column FOREVER! He is the best. He does pods from the colleges he visits, which are good too. Just so long as MTV allows it to be organic and doesn't mess with his style, it will be good. I would hate for people to try and ask stupid questions just for the sake of getting it answered on air and wasting his time.

    MTV has certainly gone to shit! What the hell is happening to this society. Thank God as a child I was never exposed to shit like Dan and Skins. I am waiting to see what the youth will be like in five years! It will be crazy!

    Dan is the ORIGINATOR of the "It Gets Better Project," not simply a "major element of it's success!!!

    YES YES YES

    i used to be a fan of his until i realized what a bitchy ass hole of a queen he is. he can never answer a question without being sarcastic, angry and an all around shit.

    Dan wasnt just a major reason the it gets better campaign, he was the creator. Give him credit, and stop trying to steal his thunder for that.

    He was "a major element to its success" because Dan Savage CREATED the It Gets Better Project! He's also best known as "Savage Love" columnist in The Stranger.

    Re: the Period

    I agree, although I've never been a fan. Check him out in the documentary about cheating.

    I believe if the detractors starting reading Savage Love they would quickly be won over. I'm a "straight" so if you can get over he is gay and move past that then it's value become apparent.
    He gives very "straight" advice like protection-not getting STDs, having older people hit on you, etc.,. often to teenagers. So if you get bothered a teen writes him about their high school coach is trying to seduce them and they don't know what to do because the offender has threatened to ruin them with their school- believing questions like that are in appropriate- then you are part of the problem and shouldn't watch the program.

    So "it gets better" was really all about raising his profile to get a reality show??? How very sincere….not!!

    Love love love Dan Savage. It was a dark day when the Village Voice dropped his column, but glad I can see it now at onion.com. Also, he's written a few amazing books, especially The Kid, a non-fiction memoir about how he and his partner tried to adopt a child (and finally succeeded!).
