MTV executives have a plan called Jerseynomics. Basically, it involves throwing tons of money at the cast of their hit reality snoozefest "Jersey Shore," and then... good... happens.

So it's no surprise that MTV gave Mike Sorrentino, aka The Situation, aka the one who pulls his shirt up at you, a development deal. He'll film some kind of pilot later this year. I'm sure The Situation has a lot of bold, Peabody Award winning television show concepts scrawled into his moleskine notebooks. Granted, most of the pages are probably filled with crude drawings of his own abs, but I'm sure whoever's Co-Executive Producing can work with that. Here's what Sorrentino has to say about all this:
"I'm excited to continue my relationship with MTV, which has been home for me for the last couple of years," Sorrentino said. "I'm really grateful for all the support from my fans. Hopefully, there will be plenty more situations in the future."

His nickname is "The Situation," you see. Meanwhile, not only has"Jersey Shore" been renewed, but 2012 will bring us spin-off shows with Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Paul "DJ Pauly D" Delvecchio. Good, hopefully all these shows will last forever. (Variety)
