Episode 13: "Back Into the Fold"
Episode 12: "Déjà vu All Over Again"
What we learned going into tonight's episode of "Jersey Shore," titled "Girls Like That":
Is it "Jersey Shore" night already? My, how the time flies...
OK, we know the following:
The ratings for last night's episode are in, and TVbythenumbers.com is reporting 6.723 million people tuned in to watch Angelina's Miami implosion, including a series high in the coveted 18-49 demographic.
Episode 10: "Gone, Baby, Gone"
Girl fight! You'd think that'd be enough to get the juices flowin' ... but then you watch Snooki and Angelina tussling on the floor of their Miami pad - the Dirty Pad, going by last week's episode - and no one would fault you if, instead of feeling titillation, you felt nausea, like Ronnie driving the Escalade when afflicted with OSS (Old Sandwich Syndrome).
The blog is back.
Sorry the blog's gone quiet for a bit. But with no new episode this week, it seemed a good time to rest up for the back half of season two. There won't be an episode recap for next week's show. Not right away, anyway. Look for it Monday, Sept. 27, when we'll dive back into all the "Jersey Shore" goodness, including how Situation's faring -- or not -- on "Dancing With the Stars."
When you're watching "Jersey Shore," you know exactly what you're going to get:
It's a rainy, lazy Sunday. And if opening day for professional football doesn't do it for ya, head on over to MTV, where the network is in the middle of an all-day marathon of "Jersey Shore." It leads into an all-new episode at 7 p.m., preceding the MTV Video Music Awards.
Looks like someone got into the RonRon Juice...
"Jersey Shore" gets romantic? Who'd a thunk it? A remarkably drama-free episode instead played relationship bingo. After the fireworks of the last couple of weeks, we should've expected a bit of a letdown sooner or later.
Yawn... another week, another great rating. TVbythenumbers.com is reporting last night's episode of "Jersey Shore" snagged 6.4 million viewers, on par with the week before. This while up against the season debut of the NFL, which, presumably, attracts many of the same types of viewer that find "Jersey Shore" irresistable.
Episode 207: "Sleeping With the Enemy"
You want to know where Season Two is getting it's juice from? (And no, it's not the RonRon Juice we're talkin' 'bout) Look no further than the X chromosome set.
"Jersey Shore" hits Miami. If we're being honest, when we heard that news earlier this year and started thinking about all the mischief everyone could get into, would any of us pegged Ronnie as the main offender? Or that Mike would spend much of his early time at South Beach serving as a voice of reason?
I have always had a soft spot for the Magic 8 Ball. Why? I don’t know ... it just seems more fun than a Ouija board.
Can you believe we’re at the midpoint of “Jersey Shore’s” second season already? It’s certainly been eventful, especially these last couple of weeks.
OK, this is just sick.
“Jersey Shore” fans, spray on those tans, fix your hair just right and get ready to spend Monday at Tropicana Casino and Resort.
Episode 206: "Not So Shore"
Every character on "Jersey Shore" -- and let's be real here; they are characters -- has filled a specific role.
Look at these pictures. What do you see?
It's official. Mike Sorrentino will be hoofin' it this fall on "Dancing With the Stars." He'll join the likes of Florence Henderson, Michael Bolton and Margaret Cho on the upcoming season of "Dancing," which gets started Sept. 20 That means for a few weeks you'll be able to get double your Situation fix each week, since new eps of "Jersey Shore" should continue into early October.
Even Hollywood can't ignore the "Shore."
What a difference a week makes.
Jenni ‘J-Woww': Friend to the end ...
This week's poll question was easy to come up with. More than 24 hours later, I'm still finding new things to hash out about "The Letter."
Of all the developments in last night's episode, the one I might be most jazzed about is the apparent rebirth of Snooki, after attempting to reconcile with, then dumping, her dearest Emilio (all in what apparently was a 30-second phone call. Whatevs.)
Most of the time, I approach 10 o'clock Thursdays a bit like visiting the dentist. Or folding laundry.
Well, here we go. Another new episode of "Jersey Shore" is mere hours away, and judging from the previews, Situation breaks out a few moves tonight.
Four girls. Two sides of the house. One Situation.
If you're new to "Jersey Shore," it may be hard to believe. But there are more to relationships than just Sammi and Ronnie. In fact, there have been enough hookups amongst the housemates to make your ordinary afternoon sudser blush. So, here's a quick refresher course about "Jersey Shore's" close family relationships...
When considering the sad state of Sammi Sweetheart in Miami this season, it's become quite helpful to think of hers and Ronnie's relationship as analogous to the relationship between a windshield and a bug.
With the exception of two, albeit priceless, quotes last week - "Now, lookit. Like one big dysfunctional family" observed at the group dinner, and "She's wearin' her luggage from last year," about Angelina - DJ Pauly D was M.I.A. in MIA. Guess he needed a break after exploding at Ang a while back.
My brain is still melting from this week's episode. It's a fizzy popping sound, not much different than gargling Pop Rocks with a Mountain Dew chaser. But that doesn't mean we can avoid the weekly poll. This week's question: What character have we not seen enough of?
RATINGS UPDATE: The long, slow death march that is the Ronnie-Sammi coupling did little to impact "Jersey Shore" ratings last night. TVbythenumbers.com reports the MTV megahit held steady with another 5.5 million viewers tuning in to see SamRon come thisclose to ending things. Again.
Episode 204: "Hook-Up"
Hard to believe, but after tonight we'll be one-third of the way through season two. Already, we've gotten ample drama from Angelina, and the gnarled, dysfunctional relationship of Sammi and Ronnie. But there's been some fun to be had, too, thanks largely to Mike, Pauly and the laughable idea that Angelina would be able to fit in after bailing from Seaside Heights early in the first season.
I suppose it was too much to ask for Snooki to put in an appearance in court today. Maybe she couldn't find anyone to cover her shift at the Shirt Shack.
Another week's flown by, and now we're little more than a day away to the fourth episode of season two. Hard to believe we're almost one-third through the "Jersey Shore" season. ... Anyway, here are the two questions I have heading into tomorrow night:
He burst forth from the pack on a novel new MTV reality show, instantly becoming its breakout star. His personality was king, and he got into verbal dustups with his roommates. Known for his body, his abs got almost as much airtime as the rest of him.
Judging by the off-screen headlines, the third season of "Jersey Shore" is shaping up to be a corker?
Mike Sorrentino, you confound me.
