Despite sporting hair poofs and animal print in place of pixie cuts and monogrammed sweaters, Snooki and JWOWW are the modern-day Laverne and Shirley, producer SallyAnn Salsano said.
Salsano, the creator of MTV's “Jersey Shore” and “Snooki & JWOWW,” which premiered on Thursday, told CNN Snooki and JWOWW are a lot like Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams' characters on the '70s sitcom.

A newly sober Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino says he doesn’t worry about any of the party-filled temptations that will come with returning to the “Jersey Shore” when he heads back for a sixth season.
The reality show star sought treatment for a prescription drug problem in the spring, and he's told MTV that he's mentally in a different place now that he’s kicked his prescription pill habit, and that the old vices won’t have a hold over him.
"Mike today? I wake every day these days with a smile," The Situation said. "Happy to be alive. Happy to have the family that I have. Happy to have the fans that I have, the friends. Happy to be involved in the show ... almost like a smell-the-roses moment. ... I know where I am and I know where I'm gonna be and that's all that counts."
