THE HIT TV SERIES “JERSEY SHORE” RETURNS!

On Thursday, January 6 at 10p.m. ET/PT
NEW YORK (December 17, 2010) – It’s tee-shirt time! New Jersey’s most recognizable housemates are reunited and returning to Seaside, NJ – where all the fist-pumping magic began and a pop culture phenomenon was born. The second season of MTV’s hit reality series “Jersey Shore” resumes on Thursday, January 6 at 10p.m. ET/PT with 13 all-new episodes. This outrageous and hilarious dysfunctional family goes back to work at the tee-shirt shop, kicks back in their original shore house and picks up right where it left off. Even though they’re still experiencing some fallout from “the note” in Miami, nothing can stop the family dinners, G.T.L and gorilla hunting that have bonded them from the beginning. All seven roomies agree they are glad to be back and that Angelina is gone. Too bad none of them know Snooki has invited her BFF Deena Nicole Cortese to fill the void. This cast is about to double their pleasure because like her diminutive, fireball bestie Snooki, Deena is going to prove that big fun and big drama continue to come in small packages. More zany and entertaining than ever, these roommates are going to hit the boardwalk, beat up the beat in the club and continue to prove that while you can summer a lot of places – the Jersey Shore is truly unforgettable.
“Jersey Shore” new season info is as follows:
Premiere Episode Logline: Episode 214 (Airs Thursday, January 6 @ 10pm ET/PT)
Leftover tension from Miami spills over to Seaside when unresolved issues among the girls explode on the first night. And new roommate Deena gets off to an interesting start when she “accidentally” disrobes in front of Mike.
