Bad news for the 30-40 percent of THG readers who see Jersey Shore articles and leave comments to the effect of "GET THIS CRAP OFF THE AIR!!!"
Not happening anytime soon.
Based on preliminary Nielsen data, the Jersey Shore Season 4 premiere earned monster ratings last night - a 4.6 rating among adults ages 18-49 and a projected 9.7 million viewers overall - shattering last January's then-record debut.
Jersey Shore's ratings are bigger than Vinny's ... fuhgedaboutit.
Unfortunately for the naysayers, the absurd quotes, blowouts, genuineness and "yes, this happened factor" continue to power the show to huge success.
Short story? These record ratings may not be the cast's last.
With a season being described as "the most insane yet" by producers, and a couple of surprising developments in the works already, we can't wait.
