'Jersey Shore' to premiere season 4 in August

Pump those fists! All-new episodes of "Jersey Shore" will arrive this summer.

MTV has announced that the fourth season of the hit reality series, currently filming in Florence, Italy, will premiere August 4, according to the Hollywood Reporter. As usual, expect plenty of drama from the tanned crew.

As Marquee reported last week, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi had her driver's license revoked following a fender bender with an Italian traffic patrol car. And according to TMZ, Ronnie Magro and Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino got into a major fistfight with each other after an argument with Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola.

The high jinks are expected to continue stateside later this month when the "Jersey Shore" gang returns to Seaside Heights to begin shooting season 5.

'Breaking Dawn' trailer: What's the verdict?

If you thought the hype surrounding the royal wedding was bad, prepare yourselves for Bella and Edward's nuptials in the upcoming “Breaking Dawn – Part I.”

The trailer for the film made its debut at Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards, squeezing in plenty of plot points into nearly two minutes. Fans get to see the wedding invite; a shirtless (of course) Jacob running through rain; the wedding scene; headboard-breaking sex; and Kristen Stewart’s “uh-oh” face when she realizes she’s pregnant with a half-vamp baby.

Nicole Scherzinger officially replaces Cheryl Cole on 'X Factor'

Nicole Scherzinger, who was once thought to be a host for producer Simon Cowell's U.S. version of "The X Factor," has now come on board as a judge, Fox confirms.

Scherzinger is - you guessed it - officially replacing former Girls Aloud singer Cheryl Cole. British celeb Steve Jones will now fly solo as host of the show.

A month ago it was announced that Cole would be taking a seat at the judges' table along with  Cowell, Antonio "L.A." Reid and later Paula Abdul, but by the end of May, word spread that Cole had been dropped from the role.

Another character goes missing on 'The Killing'

Another character goes missing on 'The Killing'

[Editor’s Note: This post contains spoilers for the Sunday, June 5 episode of AMC’s “The Killing.”]

This week’s Linden-centric episode was light on Rosie and the antics of the Richmond campaign and focused primarily on the detective’s past and her relationships with her son Jack and partner Holder. I’d like to think of this episode as the (still compelling!) lull before the final two episodes of the season.

Before we explored the Strange and Troubled Past of Sarah Linden, we joined the detective as she pursued last week’s lead. She took the same ferry Rosie did on the night she died and arrived at a casino with a logo identical to the one on Rosie’s keychain.

The casino’s manager refused to cooperate with Linden’s request for assistance, so she skirted the casino altogether and instead secured a warrant for the property’s ATM machines in hopes those would yield a clue.

Reese Witherspoon slams stars who make sex tapes

Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian might have been blushing as they watched Reese Witherspoon at Sunday night's MTV Movie Awards.

Accepting her MTV Generation award, the Oscar-winning actress slammed stars who have appeared in sex tapes and nude-photo scandals, telling them they should be ashamed of themselves.

“I get it, girls, that it’s cool to be a bad girl,” the mom-of-two told the crowd. “But it is possible to make it in Hollywood without doing a reality show. When I came up in this business, if you made a sex tape, you were embarrassed and you hid it under your bed.”

MTV’s new ‘Teen Wolf’ bites

MTV’s new ‘Teen Wolf’ bites

Waves of zombies and vampires have inundated pop culture in recent years, so it makes sense that werewolves could be the next big thing. (Some have already popped up on a few of those vampire-driven properties.)

MTV looks to be getting ahead of the curve… by turning to a franchise that’s more than 25 years old: “Teen Wolf.”

The new series focuses on a high school student named Scott who transforms into a werewolf and whose best friend is named Stiles. If you’re looking for any similarities beyond that between this show and the 1985 Michael J. Fox movie, you won’t find any.
