The network’s planning a “season’s worth of celebratory Jersey Shore farewell programming” beginning on September 6th. Here’s that day’s Jersey Shore lineup thus far:
– A one-hour retrospective special titled “Gym, Tan, Look Back” that includes footage from the final season and cast interviews will air at 6pm.
– The Jersey Shore crew will hit the red carpet at 7pm during the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards Pre-Show, chatting up their last season.
– An “awards-themed” marathon of Jersey Shore episodes begins at 11am featuring some of the show’s most iconic scenes.
Then on October 4 after the season six premiere and continuing with each new episode, MTV will deliver “bonus programming” at 11pm.
A Look Back:
MTV’s Jersey Shore is the highest rated series in the network’s history. It was the #1 cable series for P12-34 for all five of its seasons and launched spin-offs including The Pauly D Project and Snooki & JWOWW. It also inspired international versions: Geordie Shore in the UK and Gandia Shore in Spain.
