MTV has announced its next MTV Movie Awards host, and they did so in a most unusual way. Last night during the 'Jersey Shore' series finale (which you surely watched intently), the network aired an announcement commercial featuring Hollywood's "it" girl, Rebel Wilson. Watch the amusing ad after the break!
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?
Just as the last MTV Movie Awards featured a brand new 'Dark Knight Rises' trailer, the network had to pull something just as big for the VMAs on Thursday night; and there wasn't anything the MTV demographic wanted to see more than the first look at the final 'Twilight: Breaking Dawn - Part 2' trailer... except just maybe the 'Gym, Tan, Look Back' episode of 'Jersey Shore.'
It's quittin' time on Friday. For most of you, this probably means a trip to the bar after a long week of work, dinner with friends, maybe even an evening out with that special somebody. Or alternately, it could mean that your Maine Lobster and caviar garnish is being helicoptered into your palatial mansion, once the delivery guy figures out how to get through the runway adorned with matching Bengal tigers.
Oh, I'm sorry, are you not 'Jersey Shore' star DJ Pauly D? We thought you might have been 'Jersey Shore star DJ Pauly D.
Immediately after word broke that MTV would be reviving the iconic '90s slackers 'Beavis and Butthead' for all new episodes, at least one natural question followed. Could the revival of 'Beavis and Butthead' lead to a similar resurrection for the lovably droll 'Daria?' At the time, bringing back the classic spin-off on the heels of her more famous predecessors didn't seem like an option, but now a retro revival might pave the way.
As we've been learning quite a bit in recent years, a series' cancellation in no way means it will stay dead forever. If even 'Arrested Development' can find a new home years later on Netflix, surely there must be hope for MTV's well-received, but cancelled sitcom 'I Just Want My Pants Back," right? The fans sure seem to think so, and you won't believe how they've decided to show their support.
In an attempt to breathe new life into the 'Scream' franchise, Dimension Films released a fourth installment - 'Scream 4' in theaters last spring. It didn't work. 'Scream 4' performed poorly at the box-office and wasn't a hit with audiences or critics. But that's not the end of the ghost face killer!
Like a horror movie villain, the 'Scream' franchise was left for dead but is suddenly up and alive again. It turns out MTV is adapting 'Scream' into a TV series...
