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!

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.
