Jersey Shore Fistpumps Its Way To Record Ratings

Jersey Shore Fistpumps Its Way To Record Ratings

Jersey Shore drew a record 5.5 million viewers on Thursday night (August 12), making it the #1 telecast of 2010 with P12-34.

For the third straight week, the first-pumping reality series was Thursday’s #1 telecast of the day among P12-34, across all of television. Its 2.7 adults 18-49 rating beat out Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance (2.2 rating) and CBS’ Big Brother (2.6 rating).

This ratings reign just won’t let up. Impressive situation for Snooki and the gang!!!

(BTW: Big Brother is spectacular this season.)

    It’s a sad day when shows like Wonderfalls and Dead Like Me are underseen and CANCELLED after barely two seasons, why crap like this gets greenlit every year. MTV, you are shameful. Justin Timberlake was right when he said play more MUSIC. I hope this channel bombs in the near future.

    America is making me sad. I mean, I know half of american teens don’t know where New York is in a USA map, but making Jersey Shore the most watched program of the year for now is just sad. You learn 0 things from that. And yes, you are always learning when you see something, even Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Exampe: today I saw one episode of Kourtney and Khloé take Miami and learned that the K sisters can be a little crazy, but Kourtney knows how to separate her professional life from pleasure life. That is important.

    Watching Jersey Shore, you learn that you don’t want to live in New Jersey, that those guys are a bunch of jackasses and you feel bad for them. I mean, it’s Jersey Shore. Come on, America!!

    @Carlota: Good grief, you sound as dumb as the people you talk about in your actual post. What a horrible attempt at an example that fell flat into a contradiction. It’s ‘reality tv’, it’s meant for entertainment purposes, not educational purposes. That’s the same thing with “Keeping Up With The Kardashians”. It’s meant as entertainment, nothing but. Stop trying to preach, your sh#t stinks just as much as the rest of ours.

    I am embarrassed for our Country. I remember seeing the previews of the first Jersey Shore and thinking “wow…looks like another Real World, that will never last”. And Not even a year later these kids are the biggests “stars” in Hollywood. The talentless, unattractive, classless Snooki is getting paid $30,000 PER EPISODE?!? To basically act like a nasty hot mess Troll and fist pump. What is this world coming to…..! ! ! ! ! !

    This says a lot of what’s wrong with this country, people tuning in to see a bunch of losers get drunk and act like morons. We’re doomed. Reality TV is the demise of civilization.

    Maybe you can’t learn many things from the Kardashians too, but at least they have a life and jobs and things like that. The guys from Jersey Shore are just stupid people. I mean, they argue for nothing and the show is just about their stupidity. If I had someone paying me 30 grant for each episode, I think I’d get a life after the first one.

    And, yes, maybe it’s not about education, but that kind of entertainment shouldn’t even be entertainment, because it’s because of entertainment like that that people don’t know where people don’t know the name of the oceans or where the UK is. It’s pure loss of time.

    Shame on people that watch Jersey Shore. Shame.

    All these jersey ‘guido’ and housewives shows are a disgrace to Italian Americans. Why is it OK to blatantly stereotype Italians as big, stupid, loud and usually ‘orange’ animals?
