MTV prepared for life without Jersey Shore

In a post Jersey Shore age, MTV keeps the adrenaline pumpin’ with the premieres of hot new series following the adventures of young amazing lives.

Much to West Virginia’s Sen. Joe Manchin’s chagrin, taking over Jersey Shore’s Thursday night slot is the much-talked about and controversial series, Buckwild (Jan. 3), which follows nine, wild youths through the hills of West Virginia.

Immediately following Buckwild, viewers can keep riding the crazy train from West Virginia to Northern Ontario to witness three Canadian teens living on the edge, literally, in MTV Canada’s all-new Original Series, Careless Teens (Jan. 3).

Then, from reckless youth to ruthless go-getters, MTV shines a spotlight on a group of ambitious friends from the gritty N.Y.C. neighbourhood of Washington Heights (Jan. 9).
Back by popular demand, MTV Canada turns fan fave MTV Impact: Losing It – a no-holds barred first-person account of “first-time” stories – into the eight-episode Original Series, Losing It (Jan. 7). Speaking of TMI (too much information), MTV continues to deliver a weekly dose of the ins and outs of everyone’s favourite guidettes, and a baby, with all new-episodes of Snooki & JWoww (Jan. 8).

Beyond dating, friendship, and their love of “mudding”, the bond they share with family and friends is always at the core for this fun-loving group.
