The Situation Gets A Show Now???

So the execs at MTV figured “what the hell! Let’s give it a shot.” If the show involves The Situation getting genital warts from a land-mine disguised as a grenade, then I may watch.

THR:

Mike Sorrentino, better known as The Situation, has inked a pact with the cable network for a potential series. Sorrentino is not attached to a specific project at the moment, but a pilot presentation will be filmed later this year for a possible series pickup.

This comes after the cable network greenlit two untitled Jersey Shore spinoff series: one features Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jenni “JWoww” Farley, while the second is led by Paul “DJ Pauly D” Delvecchio. Both shows, expected to bow some time in 2012, center on the trio’s lives away from Jersey Shore.

MTV exec Chris Linn told THR in an interview the same day the pickups were announced, that the spinoffs will not dilute the franchise. “I think it allows us to expand out from the base of Jersey Shore without taking away from what Jersey Shore is. They would continue to be involved in any potential future cycles of Jersey Shore,” Linn reassured at the time.

Jersey Shore is MTV’s top-rated series of all-time; its third season averaged a 7.7 rating in the persons 12-34 demographic, up drastically from the first two seasons.
