Well, then the trailer for the show’s upcoming fourth season has a message for you: Everything and everyone is descending into lawless chaos and emotional cataclysm.

Madness! Madness! Check out the video: READ FULL STORY »

MTV has confirmed that production of Jersey Shore‘s fourth season, set to shoot in Florence, Italy, has been postponed, partly due to a visit from the country’s president, Giorgio Napolitano. The network said in a statement, “Production on Jersey Shore will begin this week, following the Italian presidential visit to Florence.

This is so weird. It’s like falling through a wormhole and watching some bizarro alternate universe version of Jersey Shore. Below are the opening credits for Geordie Shore, which comes to us from MTV’s UK network. A few of the characters look like they’re trying to fist pump and failing. They even have a version of Snooki, only thinner and with a smaller poof. And is it just me, or is this the first time the Brits cast slightly hotter people than us in anything? READ FULL STORY »
