To us, it's always been clear that Pauly D is the star of "Jersey Shore." He's been constantly front-and-center, even though he rarely got embarrassingly drunk onscreen and generally stayed out of the fray when it came to mindless squabbling. And despite being one of the more ridiculous-looking cast members, he's clever and charismatic and, oh yeah, he actually had a real job DJing before he became a star.
So we're excited about his new show "The Pauly D Project." It'll follow the "Jersey Shore" golden boy as he tries to become the biggest party DJ in the world (and the tannest) with his friends from home along for the ride (sorry, Vinny). It's like a real-life "Entourage" but way less douchey.
The series premieres tomorrow at 10:30 p. m. on MTV. But for now, here's an exclusive preview clip in which Pauly takes a break from dropping the bass to drop knowledge on how to roll VIP into Vegas nightclubs.
Welcome to Round Three of the "Guy Code" Bracket Of Wisdom! On Monday, you narrowed down your favorite wisdom from Season 1 of the MTV2 hit show and we have your Elite Eight results. Click the topics below to watch video of the categories and make sure to vote for the Final Four after the cut.
In the Relationships division, The Friend Zone beat out Girlfriends with 58.6 percent of the votes. Looks like our readers may be stuck in unwanted territory. That or they all just think Julian McCullough is f***ing hilarious. In the fan-favorite division, Sex, Getting Freaky narrowly won this round with 51.55 percent of the votes over The Morning After. We assume you're all into weird kinks and totally in lust with Melanie Iglesias. We don't blame you.
In The Crew division, Wingman sweeps Pregame Etiquette away with 71.73 percent of the vote. Yet another double win for all-star representative McCullough. Looks like we might have a tournament MVP on our hands. And finally in Upkeep's division, it seems our readers got over their body image issues, choosing Manscaping over Dieting with roughly 66 percent of the votes.
Vote to determine the Championship contenders and remember to check back on Friday, March 30 for the results and the Final Two round of voting. At the end of this tournament, we will unlock an exclusive clip from the upcoming special "Guy Code Spring Break Survival Guide" premiering April 10 at 11 p.m. on MTV2.

Tuesdays are awful. Mondays, you expect to suck hard. But Tuesdays are worse, because you realize, "S***, we still have four days left in this miserable nightmare and I'm dragging ass from my awful Monday."
Thankfully, Tuesdays just got a lot better thanks to MTV2's "Nitro Circus Live." Join 17-time X Games gold medalist Travis Pastrana and some familiar "Nitro Circus" faces as they go Down Under with all the action and behind-the-scenes high jinks of their extreme sports road show. It'll be like you're part of the Nitro crew. The lazy, unskilled, freeloading part (hey, every crew needs one).
Honestly, we have no witticisms or filthy jokes to make here, because the show is simply THAT badass. Tune in tonight at 11 p.m. on MTV2 to see extreme wheelchair athlete Aaron Fotheringham accomplish feats that most people with working legs would never even dream of trying. If that weren't enough, you get another episode at 11:30 p.m. with the balls-out incredible Cam Sinclair. In 2009, he attempted a double backflip in a motocross run, and the crash left him in a coma and partially paralyzed. After months of recovery and rehabilitation, Cam's back and trying it again tonight.
Check out sneak peeks of tonight's episodes below.

Season 5 of "Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory" just started and it's already clear that this season is bigger and more ridiculous than ever. Already pro skater/aspiring daredevil/MTV stalwart Dyrdek has executed a car stunt that's only been done by four people before him, started a burrito business and filmed a rap video.
By the way, that's his job. There's a reason it's called "Fantasy Factory." Rest assured, whether you're in school or at work, whatever you're doing right now, Rob Dyrdek is doing something a lot cooler. And that should give you hope. Hope that one day, you, too, can break free from the rat race. But until that happens, you get to live vicariously through Rob. So check out 10 things Rob's done this season that will make you want to watch "Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory." Be sure to tune in to new episodes Monday nights at 10p/9c on MTV for your stunt and prank fix. Read More...
Last Thursday to coincide with the NCAA Tournament's Sweet 16, we launched the "Guy Code" Bracket Of Wisdom and allowed you to vote on the best pieces of advice from Season 1 of MTV2's hit show "Guy Code." Thousands of you responded and today we are releasing the results! Starting right now, you can also vote on the advice that made it to the Elite Eight.
In the Relationships Division, Girlfriends scored 76.89 percent of the vote over Cheating. Our readers either really liked Donnell's quote over Andrew's or you're all a bunch of relationship whores. Rounding out this division, it was a much tighter race between The Friend Zone, which nabbed 58.04 percent, and Dating Your Best Friend's Ex. This is the first of Friend Zone representative Julian McCullough's two wins. His token Wingman quote led the way over Fighting in the The Crew Division with a whopping 77 percent of the results. Also in that category, 59 percent of voters picked Pregame Etiquette over Drink Like A Man.
Everyone's favorite division, Sex, predictably received the highest amount of respondents. The Morning After beat Sexting in a 71.68 percent landslide and Getting Freaky, represented by the very sexy Melanie Iglesias, took 61.34 percent of the vote over Contraception. Finally in the Upkeep Division, respondents proved to be weight conscious, choosing Dieting over Bachelor Pad with nearly 60 percent of the vote, while Manscaping took nearly 65 percent of vote in the other matchup over Bathroom Products.
Vote for the next round of matchups below and remember to check back on Wednesday, March 28 for the results and the Final Four round of voting. At the end of this tournament, we will unlock an exclusive clip from the upcoming special "Guy Code Spring Break Survival Guide" premiering April 10 at 11 p.m. on MTV2.

"Mad Men" returned last night, and in addition to watching our favorite womanizing band of stylish alcoholic racists, we got to see more of Don's lady Megan. A LOT more. This is a good thing.
Canadian actress Jessica Paré isn't a household name , but will be soon after her portrayal of Don's new wife last night. After giving a smoldering burlesque performance (singing in French = insta-chub), she introduced the world to housecleaning in your underwear, which ended in angry floor sex. Not exactly how things play out when our cleaning lady comes around. Again, this is a good thing.
But perhaps the '60s just don't do it for you. We get that. Well, good news: Pare can also do the '80s! She was in "Hot Tub Time Machine," topless (ah, now we get why Don Draper married her). In fact, she's been doing topless scenes since "Stardom" in 2000 and a full-on lesbian love scene in 20o1's "Lost and Delirious." We love French Canadians! Check out the screencaps of our new favorite Canadian below. (Sorry, Bryan Adams).

"Mad Men" finally returns on Sunday with a 2-hour season premier, so we thought we'd test your knowledge of the show's iconic womanizer/idea man/swimmer Don Draper. We've paired the dapper ad guru with rap legend Tupac Shakur--because, why not--to see if you can identify quotes from the two ballers. Trust us, it's a lot harder than it sounds.
Draper may be the prototypical '60s white man, but he has a surprising amount in common with 2Pac, the not-so-prototypical '90s hip-hop star. For instance, both men came from a hardscrabble background, and they're supremely confident, relentlessly driven enigmas. And they are obsessed with death and resurrection. Sure, one of them isn't real, but humor us.
Below we've compiled 18 quotes from the two. See if you can guess who said each one. Answers are at the bottom.
"Guy Code" gives you advice straight. As the first ever playbook for guys to follow, they don't sugar coat anything. They talk about topics like manscaping so that you never, ever, have to ask a guy at the gym how he trims his pubic hairs. You're welcome. MTV Clutch got together with our friends at MTV2 to bring you the "Guy Code" Bracket of Wisdom. We took 16 topics from the show and split them into four categories: Relationships, The Crew, Sex and Upkeep. You get the chance to vote for your favorite advice from our all-star think tank and at the end of the tournament we'll unlock an exclusive clip from the upcoming special "Guy Code Spring Break Survival Guide" premiering April 10th at 11pm on MTV2.
The Sweet 16 begins Round One of the tournament. Note: the following is best read in a ready-to-rumble announcer voice. Battling it out in Relationships is Girlfriends versus Cheating and The Friend Zone versus Dating Your Best Friend's Ex. Over in Sex, we have Sexting versus The Morning After and Getting Freaky versus Contraception. In The Crew's corner, it's Drinking Like A Man versus Pre-Game Etiquette and Fighting versus Wingman. And finally, fighting it out in Upkeep is Dieting versus Bachelor Pad and Bathroom Products versus Manscaping. Which topics feature your favorite words of wisdom? Let the voting begin!
To find out which pieces advice make it to round two of Guy Code's Bracket Of Wisdom, come back to MTV Clutch this Monday, March 26th to vote between the Elite 8.

So it turns out nerds have some power (thanks to the nerd who invented the internet) and those nerds are staging an insurrection! First, music and history geeks got all hot and bothered after watching screeners of the season premiere of "Mad Men." Apparently the new season takes place in (minor spoiler) 1966, but the song during the closing credits, "The Look of Love", wasn't released until 1967. After critics inundated series mastermind Matthew Weiner with comments pointing out the inaccuracy, Weiner swapped in a different song for the final cut. Score one for nerds.
Then, when discussing his forthcoming reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, nerd frenemy Michael Bay said his version of the heroes in a half shell would be aliens, which caused everyone everywhere to completely lose their s***. What about the Ooze?! It's Teenage MUTANT not Teenage ALIEN!
Bay channeled his inner Michelangelo (to be clear: NOT the artist), telling the angry fans to chillax, because he was working closely with the TMNT creator so as to prevent any legacy-sullying. Score another one for nerds.
It's clear the link between fan and creator has never been more symbiotic - a trend that seems to have started with "Lost," which has been dubbed "one of the most interactive" TV shows ever. But with nerd power comes nerd responsibility, which is basically just the responsibility to not equate a perceived slight with RAPE*, which is exactly what the original voice of Michelangelo did.
*Unless you're "South Park." Those dudes can do anything they want.
