Just in case you didn't get enough of Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino during his stay at the Jersey Shore, America's least favorite tool is making a comeback. 

No, MTV won't take the 31-year-old gym rat back. But TV Guide Network is willing to give him and the rest of the Sorrentino family a chance.

The Situation will star alongside his mother Linda, brothers Marc and Frank and sister Melissa. 

A press release for the show states "The Sorrentinos" - a docu-comedy, of sorts - will offer insight into "what happens after overnight superstardom based on bad behavior."

Remember when he and the rest of the "Jersey Shore" crew were among the highest-paid reality stars a few years back? Nowadays, Snooki is a workout-aholic, fiancé and mother of one adorable little Lorenzo (Who, apparently, isn't a fan of Santa Claus). JWoww is also engaged, with a little girl of her own on the way. 

As for Mike, you may remember he was on "Dancing With the Stars" for a bit. He also checked into rehab in 2012, claiming an addiction to prescription drugs. The show will include how life has been since staying clean.

"This next chapter of my life is about sobriety and family, and I'm stoked to take people on this journey with us," he said.

Production, which starts next week, will be in New Jersey. No airdate has yet been set. 

In honor of his return to the small screen, let's take a moment to remember The Situation giving it his all at Donald Trump's Comedy Central roast. Ahh, this never gets old…
