MTV has confirmed that production of Jersey Shore‘s fourth season, set to shoot in Florence, Italy, has been postponed, partly due to a visit from the country’s president, Giorgio Napolitano. The network said in a statement, “Production on Jersey Shore will begin this week, following the Italian presidential visit to Florence.  In the ongoing spirit of cooperation, we’re waiting until his official visit concludes to start filming.” EW has learned that the presidential visit would have hindered production in terms of which locations the cast would be able to visit, hence the brief delay.

    Can we arrange for Napolitano to visit the MTV studios on a daily basis so that nothing airs? I’m willing to kick in weekly. The IQ points gained by our youth from them not being on the air will benefit us all.

      Better yet, let’s find Ezio’s descendants from Assassin’s Creed to take care of these 7.

    I wish they weren’t desecrating the beautiful and timeless city of Florence with this trash.

    • erin

      I know, right? I don’t mind Jersey Shore, but the thought of them in FLORENCE…. it gives me the chills.

    • Justagirl

      Italy is going to close it’s borders to Americans after these bozos visit.

      • shirlita

        lmao!

  • Natasha Champness

    I hope they go to Armenia instead. More American television programmes should be filmed there.

    Nothing like hiding the trash before the President visits.
    My guess is they will make a laughing stock of themselves and us.
    How many girls are going to get diseases?

    “In the ongoing spirit of cooperation”
    Translation: They refused to let us film while the President was visiting. They were afraid he might catch something from one of them. Of course if it were Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi he would want to party with Snooki.

    The nerve of that guy!

    “Italian diplomats are continuing their investigation as to the reason behind the mass exodus of millions of Italians from the country which began the week of May 9th. As soon as we have more information or discover the reason for the volt, we will update our story. Now back to regular programming”

    What do the Jersey Shore dummies have to do with Italy? They’re not all Italian and for the millionth time, they do not represent Italian-Americans.

    • Daw Johnson

      Many of them are Italian, and they all adhere to an image/lifestyle that *IS* espoused by many Italian-Americans.

      Oh, and it’s an interesting gimmick to ship them off overseas for a new season–Miami and Seaside were tired.

      Was your comment serious? And yet the Jersey Shore cast is dumb?

      • emma

        daw johnson, give me a break, they aren’t italian, few of them have just an ancestry from sicily, sicily is an island like hawaii in america that became part of italy 150 years ago (1861) sicilian are way different from north italian by genetics,physical looks,culture,cuisine,language and history, the members of jersey shore are italian like domino pizza,lol all the people in europe and italy will think that americans looks all orange, italian is somebody born,raised and with both parents full 100% italian, not mixed with polish,mexican,chilean,irish,puertorican like them

        Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi (NY) is half Chilean adopted by an sicilian family

        Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino (Staten Island) is half Spanish half sicilian

        Jenni ” J-WoWW” Farley (NY) is half Irish half sicilian

        Paul “Pauly D” Delvecchio (Rhode Island) is half Spanish half sicilian

        Ronnie Ortiz-Magro (Bronx) is half Puerto Rican half sicilian

        Sammi “Sweatheart” Giancola (NJ) said “I am not Italian, but I can understand why some Italians are upset”

        Vinny Guadagnino (Staten Island) is the only full sicilian

        Angelina Pivarnick (Staten Island) is Polish

    • Fog cue

      Yeah they do – all Italian-Americans look like what they eat – bright red, beefy, and full of dense dough.

    • Jeff

      Also, most of them are from New York.

      • Daw Johnson

        It’s about

  • Zeke

    Maybe he can decree an order and have this whole cast sent away to the Aleutian Islands in Alaska…just anything to get these vagabonds off the air!

  • Jim

    Why don’t they film this show at a correctional facility since the entire cast will end up there. I appluad Italy for having far more class than the Americans who watch this crap.

  • Justagirl

    They should do a crossover season with Deadliest Catch. Now that would be pure comic genius.

  • RYAN JAMES NEUFELD

    their original homeland should be more acceptable to have them back for a short stay to help boost moral

  • teresa

  • Disgusted

    @teresa

    You are a moron. 50 years old and you condone this type of behavior? Its morons like you who support this type of garbage. You should be ashamed of yourself you hag.

    • Dinglebery

      I absolutely agree. This is a terrible show and it portrays Americans, Italian-descendent at least, as complete morons … But, I do enjoy watching it, it just re-inforces my belief that most Americans are complete idiots because they would rather watch “reality TV” than a real TV show with talented actors.I will admit, however, that Jersey Shore also has some pretty funny “situations”. Staged 99% of the time, but still funny.
