Jersey Shore And The Bachelor Announce January Premiere Dates image
Jersey Shore ended Season 4 without a bang a couple of weeks ago. Ratings showed a pretty big drop from the seasonís start, reaching a mere 6.6 million viewers (down from 8.8 at the beginning). Mike might have gotten irritable and Jwoww may have started hanging out with Sammi; but hopefully, things will settle down as the cast returns from Italy and heads to the more familiar Seaside Heights, NJ.

Though MTV only aired the Season 4 finale on October 21, the network already has its sights on Season 5. Today, MTV announced the new season of Jersey Shore will air on January 5 during the 10 p.m. ET slot. No cast changes have really gone down post-Italy. Happy or no, The Situation does plan to return. Nor has Deena been found to be a ďbad eggĒ and plummeted down a garbage chute in the off-season.

In other premiere date news, ABC has also announced a January release date for The Bachelor. THR is reporting the Season 16 opener will be a two hour doozie that will air on January 2 at 8 p.m. ET. Ben Flajnik, who was rejected on The Bachelorette by Ashley Herbert will get a second go at love.

Too bad The Bachelor will premiere on Monday and Jersey Shore will premiere on Thursday of the opening week of January. The 8-10 slot and 10-11 slot would have worked out to a perfect night of television. Then again, perhaps three hours is too much reality TV for one day.
