MTV is going to air repeats of "Jersey Shore" all day next Thursday, before the "MTV Video Music Awards". The marathon will run up to 6:00pm, when they're going to air a one-hour special called "Gym, Tanning, Look Back", where the cast will "reminisce" about the show.

Of course, the stars of "Jersey Shore" aren't totally going away unfortunately. MTV just ordered a second season of "Snooki & JWoww" – shweew!
