Half-hour skein, which will wrap its first season Sept. 27, is MTV’s highest-rated scripted series in the last two years and third best show this summer for the cabler, following “Jersey Shore” and “Teen Mom.”

Tuesday night’s episode aired at 11:30, following a 90-minute “Teen Mom,” and scored well again in the 12-34 demo (2.3 rating). Show is averaging a 2.0.
