Mark your calenders, guidos and guidettes, because Jersey Shore is coming this Sunday!

Our favorite band of orange-hued misfits will be airing a special, brand-smushing-new episode on Sunday, August 28 at 7 pm ET/PT before the 2011 MTV VMAs. So, don’t miss out on this new episode of your favorite Italy explorers!

This move isn’t exactly new — MTV has switched Jersey Shore to temporary time slots to help promote different shows in the past. Will the VMAs benefit from a Jersey (fist) bump? Find out on Sunday.

Don’t forget to tune into a new episode of Jersey Shore on Thursday, August 25 at 10 ET/PT.
