Even though this fifth season of Jersey Shore is supposedly the last to feature Snooki, The Situation and all the other crazy housemates, MTV won’t be rid of GTL guidos and meatballs just yet. The network has just announced the air date for Pauly D’s solo spin-off reality series, The Pauly D Project. So when’s the big day, and what highly anticipated program will Pauly’s show have to follow every week?
The Pauly D Project is scheduled to premiere on Thursday, March 29 at 10:30 p.m., following the premiere of a newly revamped version of Punk’d featuring various celebrity hosts rotating in as the weekly prankster.
Pauly D’s show will give viewers an inside look at his life away from the Shore House, including his transition from fist-pumping housemate to world-class DJ. Fellow casts members include his best friends from his home state of Rhode Island. Oh, and some screen time may be devoted to Britney Spears, since the DJ accompanies the pop icon on her international “Femme Fatale” tour.
This is only one of two Jersey Shore spin-offs, as Snooki and JWoww are also working on filming their own reality series. After Hoboken, NJ denied their request to film there in order to “protecting public safety and quality of life concerns,” the duo has received an invitation from Jersey Shore, PA. Does the town know what they’re getting into?
“We’d like to know what the show’s going to be about, will it be shot inside or outside,” said Jersey Shore, PA borough manager Gretchen Speicher, in all seriousness. ”I would like to know because I’ve never seen ['Jersey Shore'].”
Whose spin-off are you more excited for: The Pauly D Project or JWoww and Snooki’s show?
