The Jersey Shore Miami premieres tonight, the follow-up to the first season that introduced America to the disaster that is Snooki and the brilliance that is “The Situation.” As someone who went to college within an hour of the Jersey shore, I had the unfortunate privilege of dealing with these sorts on a regular basis — I definitely get particular amusement out of this gem of a show. MTV may have gotten lucky to some extent with this one, but they are merely employing a strategy they have now used many times before — capitalizing on America’s love for trashy TV.
You’ve got to think Miami will be great for Pauly D’s DJing career as well as the ladies — can they avoid grenades this year? I doubt it, but I’ll be watching. The show premieres tonight at 10:00pm EST on MTV.
