Snooki and JWOWW: MTV Readies For Second Season of Jersey Shore Spinoff

Though the last season of Jersey Shore has come and gone, its leopard-print legacy continues, to much celebration and chagrin. On January 8, MTV will premiere the second season of Snooki & JWoww, which, on the surface, might seem like just another excuse to eye-roll or lament the current state of American culture. But this spin-off has a surprising layer of depth that should warm the hearts of even the harshest Snooki critic, if they can manage to look past the spray tans to find the classic themes of love, friendship, and family underpinning the whole show.
