Vinny Guadagnino may be one of the biggest breakout stars of Jersey Shore. MTV and Vinny had a genius idea: Do a talk show that doesn’t feel like a damn talk show and film it all in Vinny’s family home. Lil Wayne appears and he’s the reason why I’ll be tuning in. The series premiere is tonight on MTV. Weezy is a fun guest, natch, and it’s clear that Vinny’s show may feel like a mini-documentary in some ways because there’s no huge stage production, cue cards and teleprompters. I’m really feeling this “real” approach to Q&A’s. Of course this has been done before, but not many hosts and networks take viewers inside the homes of their hosts and film an entire series there. I hope The Show With Vinny is good so it can be picked up for more seasons.
This may be the last season of Jersey Shore but we're far from seeing the last of the housemates just yet. Vinny Guadagnino has scored his very own talk show!
Pauly D was the first to get a spin-off, then Snooki & JWoww' came in second. Now it's anyone but Mike Sorrentino's turn, so Vinny's next to score his own show.
MTV writes that Vinny D "will host a slew of celebrities inside his family's humble digs, where VIPs such as Vin's mom, Paula, and his oddball Uncle Nino can regularly be seen.
"Guests will be treated to some snacks (maybe even Sunday dinner, if they're lucky) while being chatted up by the best-selling author about a number of off-the-cuff topics."
MTV believes that the show is a "genre-busting take on the interview format." Okay. I just don't think many A-listers are gonna wanna sit down with a Jersey Shore star for interviews when they have Ellen DeGeneres, Jimmy Fallon, Kathy Griffin and Chelsea Handler to have fun with, but best of luck to Vinny!
The season 6 premiere of Jersey Shore, which aired last Thursday, was all about Deena Cortese’s weight loss, Snooki and Jionni LaValle pretending that they’re aren’t doomed, and Mike Sorrentino staying away from alcohol.
- 5.25 million checked out the season 2 premiere
Expect ratings to plummet as season 6 is guaranteed to suck.
