MTV’s not dicking around with the debut of "The Hard Times of RJ Berger."

The network Monday said it will debut its foray into scripted comedy on June 6 at 11 p.m., right after the MTV Movie Awards. It’s a high-profile spot for MTV’s big push into scripted comedy.

As previously reported, "Hard Times" is MTV’s "Hung"-like half-hour about a teen geek who finds his life dramatically altered when the rest of the world discovers that he’s well-endowed. The network describes the show as part "Wonder Years," part-"Superbad."

MTV’s regular timeslot for "Hard Times" will be Mondays at 10 starting June 14.
