Still on the outlook of TCA week, there´s more info to add to the lists of cancelled shows of 2012 and renewed shows of 2012. The same day as MTV announced the renewal for Snooki and JWOWW, the cabler also renewed World of Jenks for a new run.
“World of Jenks” will premiere on Monday, November 12, 2012 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT for a second season with expanded hour-long episodes on MTV.
