Snooki's Spinoff Show Will Make Her Pregnancy a Joke (VIDEO)

So here's what's coming up in the world of GTL: a sixth season of Jersey Shore, a spinoff series called Snooki and JWoww vs. The World (described by the title stars as "a modern day Laverne & Shirley"), and, of course, a baby that will eventually emerge from Snooki's body.

I can only image the scrambling that must have gone down at the MTV offices when she announced her pregnancy, being as how they were surely counting on the typical booze-soaked antics that made Jersey Shore so popular. After a quick about-face in the show's creative direction, MTV seems to have embraced this special stage in Snooki's life, and even has a brand new party line designed to convince us all that Snooki and JWoww is going to be even more awesome with a pregnant star.

The reason? Apparently Snooki and JWoww are going to offer a unique perspective on impending motherhood—one that's never been explored before in the history of EVER.

MTV President Stephen Friedman said the show's familiar stars will be shown in an unexpected way:

It’s a very different show -- it isn’t two single pals living in Jersey City anymore. You’re going to see a very different side to both women -- not just Snooki but Jenni [JWoww], who has a real maternal side.

He added,

It’s a whole new way to look at pregnancy.

O RLY? As in, most pregnant moms don't plan to put their newborn in a "smush room"According to her castmate Vinny Guadagnino,

We're going to turn the Smush Room into a nursery. We're great role models for a kid. We'll make it work.

If you, like me, had never heard of the term smush room before, here's a helpful definition from the Urban Dictionary:


And here's a look at Snooki and JWoww cleaning the smush room in 2010 while sporting homemade hazmat suits:


Awww, you guys—a bodily-fluid-themed nursery! That really IS a whole new way to look at pregnancy!

Anyway, I just think it's kind of funny how MTV is trying so hard to spin this in their favor. I mean, I don't envy their challenge—they basically have to sell the watchability of a show that won't have nearly as many booze-and-sex-related debaucheries as it was going to.

My prediction is that their new strategy will be to get people fired up over the ridiculous things Snooki says and does as a pregnant woman (I.E., the show's teaser clip, in which she burbles, "Honestly, I really didn't know that I could make a baby. So the fact that I can reproduce is very scary"), which is surely going to be depressing ... but also potentially a ratings goldmine in its own way. It'll probably be the perfect reality mashup: the existing Cro-Magnon appeal of Jersey Shore combined with the yeeeeesh factor of Teen Mom.

In other words, it won't really be a "whole new way" to look at ANYTHING. But it just might bring in a whole new set of profits for the network.

What do you think about Snooki's upcoming reality show(s)? Are you eager to see what she does on camera as a pregnant woman, or do you wish she'd just go away?
