It was inevitable, wasn’t it? Jersey Shore is going to have a fourth season, and there’s nothing you or anyone else can do about it except hunker down and brace for impact. The show you love, hate, or love to hate has been shattering MTV ratings records for the past three seasons, and it doesn’t show any signs of stopping or slowing down. It’s the network’s number one show of all time(!) among viewers ages 12-34, warping the minds of everyone from America’s future juiceheads to discerning adults that should know better. The most recent episode even outperformed American Idol in the 12-34 demo. That’s right, this thing is bigger than cable! It can’t be contained. Here’s what MTV had to say about season 4, which will take the gang of lovable orange people to Italy:
“While the stateside ‘Jersey Shore’ locales have become iconic for our audience it’s really the constantly evolving dynamic amongst the cast that keeps them coming back each season and Europe is a fresh spin on a show that continues to reach new heights for us,” said Chris Linn, Executive Vice President of Programming and Head of Production for MTV. “The cast is headed to the birthplace of the culture they love and live by. We can’t wait to see what erupts as a result.”
I smell an international incident. Although, that’s probably just hair gel.
