Jersey Shore is a big, stupid success. More so than the other incarnations and seasons that have been big, stupid successes. So they’re getting a fourth season. A fourth season in Italy. They’re getting a vacation from drinking and partying…to do more drinking and partying.
The third season of Jersey Shore was pushed out quickly, and has been getting consistently better ratings than a majority of the shows on network television. The guidos and guidettes have captivated us, and if you love Jersey Shore ironically, you love Jersey Shore. Which is why they’ve gotten over 8 million viewers ON AVERAGE this season – a record high for the network. You can’t beat the guidos, only hold onto the vague hope that they’ll self destruct by fist pumping near an electric fence or a landmine. Or a Mafioso – a chance that’ll be much more likely to happen now that the cast is being sent off to Italy for the fourth season. That’s right, we’re going to spend another year following the Jersey Shore cast, learning that they’re not nearly as interesting as merits 3 or more years of television coverage. Seriously, what are they going to do
Jersey Shore is fast exhibiting the problems that are yielded by going out to clubs with too much regularity. There’s only so many times you can see the same people drunk before you’re bored and want to throw ice at them.
