New Years Eve 2011: Snooki's Ball Drop Banned from Times Square

Snooki's Ball Drop: Not in Times Square

MTV can no longer put Jersey Shore’s Snooki inside a ball at their Times Square headquarters and drop it/her during the New Year’s celebration.

The group that oversees the celebration had an objection to the stunt.  Not just the objection that I have, which is that it’s a really weird stunt. Putting her inside a ball and dropping it? Why? Oh, listen to me, trying to make sense of a stunt by someone from the Jersey Shore cast.

The official objection by the Times Square Alliance is that the request to have her in a separate ball, aside from the traditional one that is dropped on New Year’s Eve, came too late and was impractical with the rest of the outdoor events already planned.

But, don’t worry, if you are really dying to see this happen, it still will. But, it will happen in New Jersey, while the rest of “The MTV New Year’s Bash” will take place at their Times Square location. The show begins airing at 10:30 ET tonight.
