Jersey Shore's Pauly D has agreed to make a spinoff




For some reason, likely because TV execs live in some alternate dimension in which good taste is the inverse of reality, Paul DelVecchio of Jersey Shore is getting his own spinoff for sure. It was just a rumor back in September, but there's no escape now. Next thing you know, Snooki will be writing a book. What? Oh, great.

Variety says Pauly D has signed a contract for a show focusing on his music career, with a pilot already having been shot. "At the heart of Jersey Shore is the unique and genuine cast, and Pauly D truly embodies both qualities," MTV programming chief Chris Linn says. "We know viewers are curious about his life away from the shore, and we look forward to exploring new possibilities around that."

Here's a new possibility: You set an example by not making any more shows that glamorize young people acting like idiots, getting knocked up or wanting to irrevocably alter their appearance and the world's IQ will nudge back up a few points. Nah, that'll never sell.
