Jersey Shore

Trust me, I love my reality television show as much as the next guy. I have to say, though, that I really don't get "Jersey Shore". Every time I try to watch it, I end up shaking my head. As my colleague Laura Claps reports here, maybe that's the point.

What's your experience, Laura? Jim.

"Jersey Shore" scored 5.3 million viewers for its season two premiere last Thursday, almost a 300% increase from last season. Even if you pretend you don’t watch the show, we now have proof that you do! I can admit I am a loyal fan. I love the fighting, the fist-pumping and most of all, the ridiculous things these people say -- which then supplies you with quotable material for the next day at work.

Some classic examples in the event you actually had something better to do during the Season 2 premiere:

Snooki: I don't go tanning tanning anymore because Obama put a 10 percent tax on tanning. McCain would never put a 10 percent tax on tanning. Because he's pale and would probably want to be tan. Obama doesn't have that problem. Obviously.

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… (note from Jim: holy cow!)

The exciting news is that our witty Jersey Shore friends have now been immortalized as action figures and thanks to Funko you can have your very own Situation, Snooki or DJ Pauly D for the mere price of $12.99!

That’s right kids – the Situation Talking Wacky Wobbler says things like "I check out the mirror and I’m like...Wooh, today's gonna be a good day."

Then there’s the ever so popular Snooki which reminds you that "Pickles is my thing."

Or, if you’re a fan of DJ Pauly D (he’s the one with the Gotti hair) you’ll never forget "Nooo way I'm goin' to Jersey without my hair gel; can't leave without my gel."

After you GTL, you can pick up your very own piece of Jersey (Staten Island, Long Island) here

Classic and fun for the whole family … LOL

  1. I find "Jersey Shore" to be completely unwatchable. Some times I stumble on to it by mistake since Comedy Central (it is a mental shock to go from The Daily Show/Colbert Report to Jersey Shore) is one channel below MTV. These folks are complete BENNYs.

    The best summer TV programming is on USA Network on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Fun shows show with bright filters in cool locations (NY, DC, Hamptons and Miami).
