The millions of three people who will miss MTV’s fist-pumping anthem “Jersey Shore” are in luck: MTV has announced that Vinny, the “most sensitive” of the “Shore” boys, will star in “The Show With Vinny.” Chris Linn, MTV executive vice president of programming and head of production said, “As the lives of the ‘Jersey Shore’ cast evolve, we are excited to explore new ground while still delivering the laughs and surprises that fans have come to expect from the franchise.” E Online has the exclusive report:

The project will tweak the usual talk format by taking celebrities out of the studio and having Vinny interview them in his Staten Island home with his colorful Italian family. Celebrity guests will come over for a meal and candid conversation, with lots of commentary from his hostess mother Paula, his partying Uncle Nino and others.

“Vinny’s unique mix of humor, intelligence, curiosity and heart make him the perfect choice for this genre-busting take on the interview format,” Linn said.
