"On the 'Jersey Shore,' fans only saw a part of Michael Sorrentino," he said. "On this new show, there are a whole new set of characters as well as finally introducing the real Michael Sorrentino, not 'The Situation.' I don't know if I am ever going to be able to drop the nickname, did 'The Rock' ever drop 'The Rock' ... it's part of what had made me but at the same time part of what had destroyed me, but the situation is not the whole me. It's really a dream upon another dream to get a second shot, some people don't even get one shot, to get another one is very special."
With Marc continuing his DJing career, Mike and Frank pursuing acting, Melissa in the process of planning her wedding and Peaches single and dating, Marc said "you get to see a family on the East Coast, I know there's a very prominent family on the West Coast."
Mike added, "You get to see a real show," joking about the Kardashians and adding that his show is never scripted.
"The Sorrentinos" premieres tonight at 10 p.m on TVGN.
