Noooo! MTV’s Cancels Jersey Shore!!!

Get your tissues at the ready people, MTV has cancelled Jersey Shore. They have decided to cancel the show after coming to the conclusion that the show has no more future. All of the cast members have moved on from the show and don’t really care for the Jersey franchise anymore. ‘The Situation’ is currently taking part in the UK Celebrity Big Brother, Snooki is engaged to her boyfriend Jionni whom she met on the show and she just gave birth to a beautiful baby boy named Lorenzo, DJ Pauly D currently has his own TV show called The Pauly D Project, J-Woww is also currently starring in her on show alongside Snooki called Snooki & J-Woww, Sam and Ron have moved in together and are working on there relationship, Vinny is working on his own projects and Deena has a new boyfriend and is working on there relationship.

Over the last 4 years Jersey Shore has introduced the world to multiple things that they trademarked like GTL, grenades, Les-be honest, Oh Yeah Wake Up Yeah, Cabs are here and Ron Ron Juice. We have witnessed J-Woww and Sam fight for the past 3 seasons, Snooki fall on the street several times and Mike ‘The Situation’ lie and cheat his way through women. Its time to say R.I.P to Jersey Shore and all that came with it. Goodbye Jersey Shore!

The Inbetweeners USA – First Look Trailer and Review!!!

MTV official released the official trailer for The Inbetweeners USA. The show which is an remake of E4’s hit comedy show The Inbetweeners is set to premier in America towards the end of August. Along with a whole new show comes a whole new bunch of actors portraying the legendary characters from the original British comedy. As a huge fan of the British version, I have to admit that I am sadly disappointed by the remake. I felt as if MTV has somewhat mocked a great national show that everybody loves.  The characters in this series feels and seems nothing like the British series. They don’t seem like ‘inbetweeners’, they don’t see funny and most importantly they don’t seem to have the same sense of humour like the original characters.

The whole idea of the show generally seems like a failure. I feel that sometimes when other network companies abroad decided to clone a popular show , they should at least try and make it there own. It seems that all they have done is taken the story and the characters and just had American actors act it out. I am quite disappointed and highly doubt that I will be watching this show when it finally does grace our screens. Check out the trailer below.
