Snooki and Pauly D get their own MTV series


“Jersey Shore’s famous Snooki. (MTV)
Batton down the hatches and gird your loins -- “Jersey Shore” stars Snooki, JWoww, and Pauly D are getting their own MTV series.

Suits at the Viacom-owned cable network announced Thursday they are spinning off these members of their hit docu-soap series “Jersey Shore” in two new, as yet untitled (send your ideas here) reality projects.

Both shows will begin production later this year and you can expect to see them debut them in 2012.

Both series will chronicle the lives all three lead away from their summer shares and housemates.

And, by “lives” MTV means: “gym, tan, and laundry.”

One of the 12-episode series orders is for a show following “Jersey Shore” super-star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, and her pal Jenni “JWoww” Farley as they “deal with life and love when vacation is over.” And by “life and love’ MTV means “gym, tan, laundry.”

An as yet untitled Paul “DJ Pauly D” Delvecchio series will follow “Pauly-D’s jet-setting and often hilarious life on the road as one of the country’s most in-demand DJs,” the network said.

“Jersey Shore” is ranked No. 1 among all TV series, broadcast and cable, with viewers between the ages of 12 and 34 years. Nearly 8 million people watched “Jersey Shore’s” third season finale last month, to watch those crazy-in-love kids Sammi and Ronnie fight – again. You had to be there.

Anyway, that was nearly 60 percent more viewers than watched the first season finale, which had aired only about 14 months earlier.
