MTV has officially announced the renewal of their newest reality hit.

That’s right, guidos and guidettes: Jersey Shore has been renewed for a 12-episode second season to air this summer.

The show first premiered with decent ratings, but gossip hyped up the show, turning it into MTV‘s highest-rated show currently on their channel.

MTV would have announced this renewal right after the finale of the first season, but the cast were asking for quite the big pay bump.  Sure enough, MTV agreed to pay the each cast member $10,000 per episode – which is a bargain for MTV with the ratings that show gets.

The Late Night Wars are now over.  NBC kicked Conan O’Brien to the curb, Jay Leno will go back to hosting The Tonight Show on March 1st, and The Jay Leno Shows’ Monday-Friday 10pm (ET) will be filled with other programs. 

Jay Leno feels he has been unjustly blamed in the firing of Conan.  Leno is famous for wanting to be loved by all – so he is now doing what he feels he has to do for damage control on his public image.

Click here for a transcript of what was said by leno in the Oprah interview.

Did he do a good job explaining his side?  Did this help clean up his image?  Or did this make him look worse?

ABC got another shake-up today, as one of its long-running reality shows will lose a host.

Well, technically a co-host.

Samantha Harris is leaving Dancing with the Stars to focus more on her roles at The Insider & Entertainment Tonight Weekend.

Harris has co-hosted the competition show with Tom Bergeron for eight seasons. 

No replacement has been named yet.
