    Pauly is still Pauly--but he's a more grown-up version who cares about his friends, ailing dad and career.

    Nothing in the first two episodes of The Pauly D Project is more than mildly diverting, but that's still more than can be said for the reboot of the candid-camera prank show "Punk'd."

    You can take the spiked head out of Jersey but you can't stop his "Shore" ways.

    Pauly comes across as a genuinely nice guy--open, loyal and genial. The question is why would you want to take time out of your life to watch his?

    This spinoff of Jersey Shore has possibly even less substance, as the high-haired DJ from Rhode Island gets a residency gig at a Las Vegas casino, and brings his motley crew of homeboys with him to marvel at their swank new digs.

    Pauly's home-state hangers-on simply aren't a very interesting bunch.

    The group's personalities and their exploits pale in comparison to the Ron Ron juice-chugging, Jersey Turnpike-dancing cast of the "Shore." And as those sunscreen-shunning, sloppy drunks will attest, pale is never good.

    Alas, this Joey-ish spin-off is pure hagiography.

    Man MTV will do any show now a days. Honestly who cares about a Decent DJ goin around the country playin music. NO ONE. People want to see a show about DJ Blend going around the Country making music. Im not hating on Pauly D but some of us need a break from every Jersey Shore character before one comes out again Full Review »

    Possibly the WORST SHOW OF ALL TIME!

    This is actually a good show. A good kid, with some talent, trying to navigate the entertainment business. 50 Cent is no idiot. The kid is good looking, hard working and will be polished into a gem! Give him a break. Why does everyone have to be pregnant, or a train wreck to make it? It is time some shows actually show it like it is. Hard work, good guys and being an All American kid still works in the USA. So to all you haters out there, remember. The kid is worth 5 million and still lives with his father. 50 Cent will make him huge! Watch and see. Full Review »
