R.J. Berger isn't feeling the blues anymore.

MTV comedy The Hard Times of R.J. Berger, which launched its second season after the Jersey Shore finale last Thursday with a series high 3.1 million total viewers, drew its best ratings in its regular Monday night time slot.

R.J. Berger -- featuring an appearance by Shore's Vinny Guadagnino -- attracted 1.4 million viewers at 10 p.m. and a 1.4 rating in persons 12-34, both up 27 percent from the first season's average. The series debut aired on a Sunday night in early June last year with 2.6 million total viewers.

Next week, Paris Hilton guest stars.
