We’re less than two weeks away from the so-called end of the world, and MTV wants you to sit on a couch — for seven days! — to watch a "Jersey Shore" marathon.

In anticipation of the long-running reality spectacle’s series finale Dec. 20, the network will kick off seven consecutive days of “Jersey Shore” on Dec. 13 so fans can take a stroll down memory lane--reliving all the drunken spills, panty-less somersaults and aggressive GTL-ing.

“Jersey Shore” was a seminal moment in MTV’s programming — averaging as many as 8 million viewers in its peak season and fist-pumping its way into to the pop culture zeitgeist. But its cachet has waned over its run.

Its latest season premiere garnered 4.7 million viewers, down nearly 40% from the previous season opener. But the show has remained one of MTV's top-rated programs. Its most recent episode brought in 2.2 million viewers.

The series finale will be capped off with a live reunion, where the eight cast members will look back on the show’s six seasons.
