jersey shore finale marathon season 6 mtv MTV will devote 7 days to farewells before the 'Jersey Shore' finale

MTV obviously loves long goodbyes. After six seasons of orange-hued debauchery, “Jersey Shore” will air its final episode on Thursday, Dec. 20. Before that, however, the network will devote a full 7 days of programming to celebrate the end of one of its unfortunately iconic series.

The “Jersey Shore” orgy of programming officially begins with the show’s penultimate episode, airing on Thursday, Dec. 13 at 10pm. After that, MTV will air a whole bunch of fighting, drinking, sex stuff, tanning, drinking, silliness, fist-pumping and drinking from the show’s six seasons on the air.

All of this, of course, leads up to the series finale itself, airing at 10pm on Dec. 20. What will happen then is anyone’s guess. But there will probably be some drinking.

Following the finale, MTV will air a “Jersey Shore” Reunion, featuring the show’s 8 cast members live with moderator Amy Paffrath. The Reunion, which may actually be worth watching while free of pre-censoring, will air at 11pm ET.

If this is not enough “Jersey Shore” for you, there is finale-related programming online at Also, “Snooki & JWOWW” Season 2 premieres soon, on Jan. 8.
