What would you say the shape of CH3CN would be because the CH3 is tetrahedral, CN is linear, and the two Cs are in the same plane (180 degrees)? I know the hybridization of the C in CH3 is sp3 and the other C is sp and that there are 5 sigma and 2 pi bonds, but I don't know what this means.

There is a different shape when referring to each central atom.
