Yes, the first season of “Snooki & JWoww” was no competition, ratings-wise, for mothership “Jersey Shore” which opened with nearly 8 million tuned in last January, to “Snooki’s” 2.4 million last June.

“Jersey Shore” will launch its sixth season, and possibly final, season on Oct. 4 at 10 p.m.

New scripted comedy “Underemployed” will launch at 10 p.m. on Oct. 16. And when “World of Jenks” returns on on Monday, Nov. 12 at 11 p.m. it will be preceded at 10 by the launch of new docu-soap “Catfish: The TV Show” based on the indie flick hit, in which people with internet romances will be introduced to their heartthrob to see just how much truth-telling they have not been doing during their Web romance.

“MTV has been a beacon for each young generation throughout its history, and this millennial generation is no different,” the network’s head of programming David Janollari said in making Friday’s announcement.
