    I agree with ManRamForPrez24 though. I think this show should win some awards.
    It has to do with ratings, MTV gets higher ratings when showing these types of shows rather than playing music videos

    This is why History Channel shows stuff that doesnt have to do with history but about future disasters..

    I'm sure you are right. Its about ratings and money. Crazy that those girls on the hills get like 3 mill for that show but I guess MTV or Viacom is raking in the dough. People make fun of people like Spencer and Heidi but they are laughing all the way to the bank.

    I know a lot of people make fun of them but I have to admit I like many of them. Actually I make fun of myself for watching them.

    Usually its a few hot girls, some booze and lots of craziness. I dont like them all. Usually just the ones with hot girls. Even I cant stand "the city" That is boring. I think Paris Hilton started the trend of becoming rich just by being famous. Now others have really stepped in and made real fortunes just for looking good and having their lives filmed.

    Because regular people want to watch celebrities and picture themselves living their lives while sitting around eating cake and wine.

    B/c what can be better than watching 14 hot chix w/ huge cans get drunk, parade around in skimpy outfits, fight w/ each other, and compete in ridiculous contests all trying to capture the heart of some over the hill, plastic looking, 80's hair band rocker dude?

    I live in Monmouth Beach, but also my family has a house down in Belmar. I can tell you this, it all depends were you go. Some places are exactly like this, like the club scene with a bunch of idiots fist pumping and other places are like you'd see right out of a frat party (like Bar A). It all depends, but over the summer you'll def see idiots like these guys. A lot of people go there so you will have your trashy ones and the regular jersey folk.

    Besides that, i absolutely love this show. It is sooooo frickin funny.
    Suck it

    MTV Exec: It Bums Me Out People Are Offended by Jersey Shore
    By Joyce Eng Thu Dec 10, 7:04 AM PST

    Despite protests, lost advertisers and the threat of losing more, MTV's programming president says the network has "no intention" of altering its controversial new series Jersey Shore, and that the heavy backlash was unanticipated.

    "To be 100 percent honest, no, even as an Italian-American. I just wanted to be cautious about toning down the partying," Tony DiSanto told The Hollywood Reporter. "It never crossed my mind this would be offensive. ... Everybody is welcome to their own POV. It bums me out that some people are offended."

    MTV: Jersey Shore is not for everyone

    The Real World-esque series, which follows eight hard-partying twentysomethings in the Garden State, has elicited outrage from Italian-American groups for its "offensive" portrayal of the ethnicity, citing the cast's frequent use of the term "guido." "I understand that it is considered a derogatory term by certain people. I don't see it that way, since I don't think of 'guido' to mean Italian-Americans across the board," DiSanto said. "Not all these kids are fully Italian-American; it's more about a specific character type. We actually did pull the word 'guidos' from voiceover and descriptions of the show [due to the protests]. However, if they refer to themselves that way, we let that exist as is."

    Domino's pulls ads from Jersey Shore

    Several advertisers, including Domino's and American Family Insurance, have pulled their ads from the show, while UNICO, the largest Italian-American service organization in the U.S., has called for an advertising boycott. DiSanto who is unsure if the controversy will hurt or help the show in the long run says MTV is not concerned with the lost sponsors, reiterating the network's stance last week that Jersey Shore is not for everyone.

    Best quotes from the Jersey Shore premiere

    "[T]here's no intention to change anything in the show. I think that as more people check it out, they'll grow to love it more and more," he said. "Also, no show is for everybody and no show can be. If you try to make every show for everybody, you dilute the creative. If a particular person is offended, that's fine, watch something else, because MTV has a huge palate of other things to watch."
