I am going to have to make some room on my DVR once Jersey Shore goes off the air because my favorite GTL-ing guido will be getting his own show. While the fist-pumping phenomenon has spawned spin-offs for Snooki and JWoww, as well as DJ Pauly D, this one is going to be a different format and star the lovable, eyebrow raising Vinny Guadagnino.
The new series, called The Show with Vinny, has been greenlighted by MTV and will be a talk show/reality show hybrid. It will be set in the Guadagnino's Staten Island home and feature some of Vin's more colorful relatives while Vinny interviews celebrities in his den.

According to Deadline, the off-the-cuff celebrity interviews will be peppered with the craziness of Vinny's wild Uncle Nino and the hospitality of Vin's mother Paula. Interviewees will be dining with Guadagninos and partaking in candid (and likely hilarious!) conversations. How jealous am I that these celebrities will get to enjoy a serious Sunday dinner with Vinny and his fam? Very!
The show, which seems similar to the UK's The Kumars at No. 42, will be executive produced by Sally Ann Salsano, the brains behind Jersey Shore. With Vinny hosting the kooky format, fans of JS are sure to tune in to watch. There will be no audience, just delicious Italian fare, crazy family members, and big name celebrities.
Chris Linn, a head honcho from MTV, shares, “Vinny’s unique mix of humor, intelligence, curiosity and heart make him the perfect choice for this genre busting take on the interview format."
I, for one, cannot wait. Vin can do no wrong in my eyes!
