Currently the #1 unscripted series on cable in P18-49, “Jersey Shore Family Vacation” features original housemates Deena Nicole Cortese, Paul “Pauly D” Delvecchio,” Jenni “JWOWW” Farley, Vinny Guadagnino, Angelina Pivarnick, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino. “Jersey Shore,” which first premiered in 2009 and returned earlier this year to record ratings, is an MTV worldwide phenomenon that features such franchise hits as “MTV Floribama Shore,” “Geordie Shore” (UK), “Gandia Shore” (Spain), “Warsaw Shore” (Poland), “Acapulco Shore” (Mexico) and “Super Shore.”
In tonight’s finale episode titled, “Ronnie Magro’s Series of Unfortunate Events,” the roommates take a stand against cancer by hosting a charity event in honor of Deena’s father as only the Jersey Shore cast can.
