MTV announced Thursday it will debut “Jersey Shore” spinoff “Snooki & JWoww” on Thursday, June 21, at 10 p.m., and confirmed the earlier Show Tracker report that the show will be followed this season with teen-girl dramedy “Awkward,” which will premiere after the “Snooki” episode on June 28.

The network will also premiere the second season of its teen-genre series “Teen Wolf” on Sunday, June 3, following the MTV Movie awards at 11 p.m., and then follow it with a second hourlong part in the show’s usual slot Monday at 10 p.m.


MTV made the announcement at its annual advertiser upfront, where it teased a number of new programs, including a reality series on wakeboarding champions, an adaptation of a British hit and an adaptation of a hit Sundance documentary.

The youth network touted the docu-series “Catfish,” which is based on the Sundance movie about the increasingly disturbing online relationship between a man and his long-distance girlfriend. It promoted “Wake Brothers,” a reality series with the wakeboard champions Phil and Bob Soven, and “In-Betweeners,” the Brad Copeland series about a group of high school boys struggling through adolescence. The show is a counterpoint of sorts to “Awkward.”

Presentations were also made on behalf of Craig Wright comedy “Underemployed” and the scripted comedy “Zach Stone is Gonna Be Famous,” which stars viral-video comedian Bo Burnham. No air dates were given for the new series.
