‘Jersey Shore’s’ Vinny Getting His Own MTV Talk Show…Seriously
Just when you thought ‘Jersey Shore‘ was ending, its spin-offs had faded into obscurity, and its stars had settled down enough not to seek the limelight anymore. It appears another one of the ‘Jersey Shore’ bunch will look to develop his own spin-off from the long-running MTV series, as MTV has granted Vinny Guadagnino his own talk show! However, what twist will separate ‘The Show with Vinny’ from other talk shows, and who else will be present for the effort?
You can forget about saying goodbye to ‘Jersey Shore’ just yet, even as MTV inches closer to airing the final hours of the main series. Not only is ‘Snooki & JWoww‘ due to return for a second season in the coming months, while ‘The Pauly D Project’ remains one of the network’s most successful offerings, but Entertainment Weekly reports ‘Shore’ star Vinny Guadagnino will soon begin hosting his own talk show, aptly-titled ‘The Show with Vinny’!
Rather than operate in a traditional talk show format, however, the series will bring the celebrity guest into Guadagnino’s actual Staten Island home, to be interviewed by and share a meal with Guadagnino’s family, including his mother Paula, infamous Uncle Nino and others.
“Vinny’s unique mix of humor, intelligence, curiosity and heart make him the perfect choice for this genre-busting take on the interview format,” said Chris Linn, MTV executive vice priesident of programming and head of production. “As the lives of the ‘Jersey Shore’ cast evolve, we are excited to explore new ground while still delivering the laughs and surprises that fans have come to expect from the franchise.”
No word yet on when the series would debut, but what say you? Do you wish the ‘Jersey Shore’ franchise would come to a merciful end, or would you be interested to watch ‘The Show’ with Vinny’?
