The greatness/awfulness that is Jersey Shore is back. As advertised, Season 2 features a new shore (pity Miami Beach), but the same crazy. And then some.

We were concerned that the cast's celebrity status would diminish the show's luster, but the genuineness of these characters (for better or worse) was there.

So was the entertainment. While predictable, it was great to have The Situation, Snooki, Pauly D, J-Woww, Ronnie, Sammi, Vinny and that other girl back.

Here's The Hollywood Gossip's scientific plus-minus recap ...

En route to pick up the Sitch, Pauly D sums up Northeast winters: "Can't do nothin' in this weather. Can't tan, can't creep ... Girls stay in the house." Plus 5.

A dark brown Snooki laments that she no longer tans since "Obama put a 10% tax on tanning." Pretty sure that doesn't take effect until like 2014. Minus 4.

Jersey Shore Season 2 Cast

JWoww and Snooki ridicule Angelina's self-proclaimed "Kim Kardashian of Staten Island" moniker. "With what ass?" JWoww muses. A valid point. Plus 3.

No one expected Angelina Pivarnick back this season. She awkwardly greets Pauly D and The Situation, who reluctantly let her bunk with them. Minus 1.

Down south, Snooki discovers "life-changing" fried pickles. They did look good. Plus 2. That dude in the restaurant gets a Plus 1 for his fist-pump, too.

Ronnie and Sammi reunite. The tension is thick, lame and boring. This is totally going to be a drawn-out, painful Audrina-Justin kind of thing. Minus 7.

Pauly D does a quick pro-con on the Angelina situation: She's annoying and causes drama, but there could be a slow night with no chicks, so ... Plus 18.

While the guys are awkward but mostly tolerant of Angelina, the girls are ready to full-on brawl. Holy crap, JWoww needs to lay off the steroids. Minus 5.

As a general rule, it's hard not to smile at what a blast the guys are having with this show. The girls, meanwhile, just come off miserable and catty. Even.

One of the Boys

Cons: Annoying drama queen. Pros: Easily accessible.

Lending a hand scrubbing in the sink after a DISASTER involving Sammi’s FAVORITE white shorts, Snooki says "I feel like a pilgrim from the freakin' '20s." Plus 6.

An intoxicated Ronnie calls Sammi an "ungrateful c**t" and says she will "never f*%king win." Win what, you effing moron? Get over yourself. Minus 13.

Vinny sums up the night: "Ronnie's obliviated at this point." Plus 6.

The Situation: "Ron is at the club hooking up with grenades, which is a bigger ugly chick, and land mines, which is a thinner ugly chick, and ... loving life." Plus 11.

Sure enough, Ronnie mauls one of each. Minus 8 for the nasty close-up.

An additional Plus 12 for the previews of future episodes. Wow.

TOTAL: +26. Follow this link for the night's best Jersey Shore quotes!

A New Jersey judge agreed to hear a lawsuit claiming producers of Jersey Shore engaged in a "criminal enterprise" by profiting from fights featuring the stars.

By airing fights the Jersey Shore cast engaged in and deliberately provoked, attorney Eugene LaVergne of Long Branch argues that the show violated the law.

It seeks unspecified damages on behalf of three clients, who weren't responsible whatsoever for their own actions, involved in drunk fights with Ronnie Magro.

On Friday, Superior Court Judge Joseph L. Foster denied a motion to dismiss the claim that the defendants' conduct violated New Jersey's racketeering statute.

Ronnie probably thinks a statute is what Lady Liberty is.

Ronnie (Jersey Shore)

JUICED UP: Ronnie will crack some skulls when messed with on the boardwalk. Sure, he's easily provoked, but morons looking to be on TV should be on notice too.

The Jersey Shore cast needs to hit the beach or something. They're looking kind of aimless in these photos from a recent day out and about in Miami.

Seriously, they look bored. It must not be the same in South Beach without the sights and sounds of Karma and Ronnie pummeling boardwalk idiots.

This awesome photo of Snooki and J-Woww got us thinking, though: Which one of the Jersey Shore cast members would you rather ... you know?

One is a HGH-riddled behemoth with enormous fake boobs. The other may or may not be auditioning for Little People, Big World later this year.

Both fake tan and wear ridiculous outfits. So who's it gonna be?!

The cast of MTV's Jersey Shore has brought its GTL, bed-hopping, first-pumping antics to Miami's South Beach for Season 2, but that's just the beginning.

Lest you thought Seaside Heights, N.J., was a thing of the past, the gang will be returning to the Garden State - in the very same house - don't you worry.

They just got a jump on Season 2 in Miami because of the weather.

"Once the boardwalk heats back up, the series will return to the Jersey Shore to complete the season," MTV said, noting that the season starts July 29.

The Cast of Jersey Shore

All the lovable guidos and guidettes will beat up the beat again: Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, Paul "DJ Pauly D" DelVecchio, Jenni "JWoww" Farley, Sammi Giancola, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Vinny Guadagnino.

Also returning? Angelina Pivarnick, a.k.a. the random girl who bailed after like one episode, and a.k.a. Kim Kardashian of Staten Island (self-proclaimed).

The network is also exploring adding new cast members to the second season or more likely the third season of the surprise reality hit. Filming dates in Seaside are July 1-September 19, so it looks like a third season is in the works.

"It's like a big family reunion," said Tony DiSanto, MTV's president of programming. "We couldn't be more excited that the whole group is together in Miami and that they'll be going back to Jersey when the sun heats up."

Also heating up? Tempers. MTV worries that more peeps will pick fights with Snooki, Ronnie and company just to get on TV (the stars will likely oblige).

The network has requested additional police presence for the cast. According to the Seaside Heights P.D., MTV wants 8-10 off-duty officers - their tab.

There's no mistaking the male Jersey Shore cast members, sporting matching black tank tops and officially putting the G in GTL in their new Miami digs this week.

Being filmed going to the gym during the day and getting bombed at night, whilst bringing home whatever trash bags they please. Talk about living the dream.

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Vinny Guadagnino, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, and Paul "Pauly D" Delvecchio worked out during filming for the show's second season.

Here's the gang strutting its 'roided-up stuff:

ALL SMILES: What's not to love about this lifestyle?

Their GTL dream may be fulfilled every morning, but one other change this season beyond the fact that Jersey Shore no longer takes place on the Jersey Shore:

No grenades.

That's right, only hot chicks will be allowed at the Jersey Shore house in South Beach. Good luck policing that when it's 4:10 a.m. and The Situation's creepin'.

Who knew Ronnie and J-Woww could even read? Not us, but both Jersey Shore stars apparently signed a book deal! - and talk about a page-turner!

Never Fall In Love At the Jersey Shore, a Guido's guide to how to maintain the oh-so distinctive Jersey Shore look and attitude, brought to you by two of the show’s degenerate houseguests, J-Woww and Ronnie, is due out sometime this year.

And you wonder by the publishing industry is in decline. Then again, Lauren Conrad wrote a New York Times best-seller, so you never know, right?

  • Ronnie (Jersey Shore)
  • JWOWW Picture

Ronnie and J-Woww: Soon-to-be authors.

For reasons very much unclear, St. Martin’s Press enlisted Jenni Farley and Ronnie Magro to break down Shore living. We assume that includes a guide to:

  • GTL (Gym, Tanning, Laundry)
  • FHTB (Feverish Hot Tub Boinking)
  • FGFB (Flaunting Giant Fake Boobs)
  • BUEFN (Breaking Up Every F*$kin' Night)
  • GABTCAMGSAGIFWRJOTB (Getting Arrested By The Cops After Making Gay Slurs and Getting in Fights with Random Jackasses on the Boardwalk)

No doubt the advice will be something to cherish for life.

The Jersey Shore cast is ready to take Miami.

But first it's off to L.A. for a press tour for Snooki, DJ Pauly D, The Situation, Vinny, Sammi and Ronnie. Are they ready for L.A.? Hells yeah these guidos are.

But is L.A. ready for them?

Doesn't look like it has much of a choice, but here's the cast of MTV's breakout hit, mugging for the cameras right after touching down at LAX Airport ...

Jersey Shore Cast in the House

DIRTY HALF-DOZEN: The Jersey Shore cast members arrive in a location where some people besides them are actually tan. Possibly from the sun, even. Novel concept.

The gang appears to be in fine, orange, Ed Hardy-wearing form. We can't wait to see where they turn up next ... actually we can, but will find out for you anyway.

Jersey Shore star Ronnie Magro has issued an apology for the homophobic rampage he went on during one of his many fights on the freshman MTV reality series.

The hothead gets in so many brawls, it's hard to even keep them straight. But after letting loose some gay slurs in one of the, Ronnie says he got carried away.

Ronnie and Sammi on Jersey Shore

Blaming the whole ordeal on "the heat of the moment," Ronnie says he's sorry for the disgusting rant in question, which was made public earlier this week.

Never-before-seen footage of his first Jersey Shore brawl leaked online, and made Ronnie look like an even bigger idiot than The Situation is a womanizer.

Before this, Ronnie Magro was one of the most likable Jersey Shore stars.

In the video, Ronnie can be heard calling a guy on the boardwalk a "f**king f**got" and a "f**king queer" right before he beats the hell out of him. What a class act.

Yesterday, Ronnie posted on Twitter: "I apologize to my fans, In the heat of the moment i said a lot of things i didnt mean and im very sorry... i love my creepy fans."

Maybe they'll still love him, but we've lost respect. Why those words are even in people's vocabulary in this day and age is beyond us. Wouldn't "a$$hole" suffice?

No word how Sammi Giancola reacted to Ronnie's apology, or if they are broken up or getting back together at this very minute. One can never be sure with them.

Ronnie Magro of Jersey Shore seems likable enough, as long as you don't run into him and start talking $h!t on a Jersey Shore boardwalk right after last call.

Dude unleashed a homophobic tirade during one of his many brawls last summer, spewing some absolutely revolting language during the violent altercation.

The footage, which has just now come to light, was shot minutes before Ronnie's first brawl on Jersey Shore. The meathead guido got arrested if you recall.

In the clip, Ronnie Magro and another bar patron can be seen talking trash to each other and then exchanging blows on the shore in front of their girlfriends.

But in the new never-before-seen footage (watch at TMZ), Ronnie can also be seen and heard calling his adversary a "f**king f**got" and a "f**king queer."

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro

Stay classy, intelligent and off the juice, Ronnie.

Nice, Ron. To think we actually liked you too. Sammi must be so proud of you after all these incidents. John Mayer and this moron should grab a beer sometime.

Much like when Snooki got cold-cocked in the grill by that neanderthal Brad Ferro, the footage of Ronnie's gay slur use never aired on MTV for obvious reasons.

Says a source from the production company: "There were several gay staff members working on the show. Ronnie always respected them and everyone else."

Sure he did. Again, how is that word even in your vocabulary?

Get ready for a second season packed with house music, fist-pumping, trash bags, fighting with strangers on the boardwalk, and hilarious Jersey Shore quotes.

MTV's only newest hit show is coming back for Season 2!

The network, which had been engaged in some heated negotiations with the Jersey Shore cast, will run it back this summer with all the original stars on hand.

We can't wait for a new dose of DJ Pauly D, The Situation, Snooki, J-WOWW, Sammi, Ronnie and Vinny, although it looks like they'll be in a different setting.

That's right, Seaside Heights lucked out. The gang will “escape the cold Northeast and find themselves in a new destination,” MTV said in a Friday statement.

Warm weather locales, consider yourself forewarned.

The Cast of Jersey Shore

FIST-PUMP! All seven of these guidos and guidettes will be back on MTV.

MTV continued: “Our audience fell in love with Jersey Shore and its amazing cast who have really grown together as a family. That bond gives the show its heart."

"We’re thrilled to reunite these friends to bring fans what they love - laughs, love, drama and of course, GTL,” the network's president said in the announcement.

That would be gym, tanning and laundry - the daily routine of The Situation.

In case you didn't get your fix throughout December/January, MTV will broadcast the Jersey Bowl, a February 7 marathon of Season 1, on Super Bowl Sunday.
