As EW reports, the new program — either brilliantly or bafflingly titled The Show With Vinny — will take place in Vinny's Staten Island home, and his family will be part of the fun, too. Vinny's celeb guests will eat a meal with the fam, and theoretically engage in some "candid conversation" in front of the camera.
Chris Linn, VP of programming at MTV, explains that they chose Vinny for this project because of his "unique mix of humor, intelligence, curiosity and heart." The fact that his huge Italian family provided some of Jersey Shore's most memorable side characters, such as the unforgettable Uncle Nino, probably helped, too.
Will you watch Vinny's new show?
Catch the next new episode of Jersey Shore on Thursday, November 15 at10 p.m. ET/PT onMTV.
