New York, NY (December 11, 2012) – After six unforgettable seasons, MTV is bidding farewell to America’s favorite TV housemates, the “Jersey Shore” cast, with seven consecutive days of programming. The marathon will kick off with the penultimate episode on Thursday, December 13 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT and lead into the series finale on Thursday, December 20 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. One last time, fans will get to relive “Jersey Shore’s” most outrageous moments — the fights, the hookups, breakups, and makeups, and the fist pumping good times that defined this pop culture phenomenon. The “Jersey Shore” marathon will also include bonus interviews, featuring goodbye messages and behind-the-scenes moments.
MTV censors better be ready, because for the first time in “Jersey Shore” history the Reunion will be LIVE following the finale at 11:00 P.M. ET/PT (tape-delayed). All eight cast members will come together one last time in front of a LIVE studio audience and there is no telling what drama will go down. Hosted by “Jersey Shore” correspondent Amy Paffrath, the cast will look back at the past six seasons and say their final goodbyes. The live Reunion promises to be a juicy, emotional and heart-filled sendoff that shouldn’t be missed.
Fans can still follow their favorite best friend duo, Snooki and JWOWW when “Snooki & JWOWW” season 2 premieres on Tuesday, January 8 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
