Anyone disappointed that Snooki and JWoww - best friends from their Jersey Shore days - are drawing near the end of their hit TV series, can now rejoice; the ladies' spin-off series, "Snooki & JWoww," returns to MTV on Tuesday, January 8 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

Transversely: anyone glad at the prospect of the end of their TV presence: gutted. "Two days ago, I just wrapped up 'Snook Woww' [season] two, so I can't wait for that to premiere," JWoww told MTV News last month, calling the spin-off by her affectionate pet name. "Unreal. It was awesome. It was so much better than the first [season]." Snooki recently welcomed a human being into the world, who, be warned, holds the same genes as his mother and has the capacity to be just as annoying. Only joking! JWoww told MTV season two will have it all: "Lorenzo, the engagement, drama, good times. I don't know how it's going to unfold; I just lived it. And I just know it was the best two months of my life." Well we can't wait!

The current, and last season of Jersey Shore is well underway, and you can catch it every Thursday on MTV, if you want to. If you don't, then don't. That's totally up to you.
