Watch Jersey Shore

Favorite

Originally airing in 2009, Jersey Shore began its rise to fame in the historic New Jersey county of Seaside Heights. With its wild and colorful cast the show quickly saw a spike in viewers, rapidly becoming a cultural sensation. By season five our beloved guidos and guidettes had even spent two seasons away from the Jersey coast, spending season three in the sunny Miami Beach, and even traveling to Italy to get in touch with their roots in season four. Jersey Shore concluded its fifth season in March 2012 with an astounding 7.2 million viewers, making Jersey Shore the most watched series in MTV history. The cast is set to return for a sixth season, the date of which is still to be announced. Whether you love the cast or hate them, this show is definitely a rare must-see.

Jersey Shore somewhat follows the mold set by previously popular reality TV shows: 8 people are brought together to live in a house and have their lives taped for the world to see. The goings on in the group home are wild and crazy, proving again that real life is more dramatic than soap operas. The first season took place during a summer in New Jersey, where the cast is from, but subsequent seasons have seen the cast moved to new locales. This is all familiar to people who have seen other reality TV shows, but what makes Jersey Shore so unique is the cast.

The most famous, perhaps infamous, cast member is Nicole Polizzi (AKA "Snooki"). Snooki's antics have gained her widespread notoriety; she has been filmed getting arrested, sleeping around, being very drunk, being a ditz, and much more. The rest of the cast, while not as prominent as the aforementioned 'breakout star' of the show, also bring a great deal of appeal to the show. The cast has not remained the same throughout every season, but the other current cast members are: Deena Cortese, Jennifer Farley ("JWoww"), Michael Sorrentino ("The Situation"), Paul Delvecchio ("Pauly D"), Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Samantha Giancola ("Sweetheart"), and Vinny Guadagnino. All of them are frequently hilarious, and are presented as being stereotypical "guidos."

The show is mostly funny, but the show isn't all laughs. The audience comes to sympathize, and even at times identify, with the cast. We experience their laughs, but also their moments of sadness, of joy, and even anger. There is a reason why some colleges and universities are now teaching classes based on the show: Jersey Shore is not just another reality show, but has genuinely touched the hearts of America, and despite Snooki's recently announced pregnancy, it seems that the show is not running out of steam any time soon.

The season starts right off with the report on Mike's rehab: he was addicted to prescription pills apparently, and had an awful time with rehab. He's also kinda dating Paula? We also start right up with Snooki's pregnancy. "I think I did a whole 180, I think it's called?" she says of her new, non-partying ways. She already looks very pregnant. But maybe that's just because she's like four feet tall. Meanwhile, JWoww recaps the action of her spinoff with Snooki, in case you missed it.

Perez Hilton has the newest trailer for the sixth and final season with the Guidos and Guidettes and unlike so many shows going out this season after becoming shadows of their former selves through years, it's nothing but another shot of fans' favorite flavors. The show became infamous the moment in the first season that it aired Snooki taking a spontaneously thrown straight punch to the mouth and dropping like Minnesota's mercury in January.

Get Your First Look at Snooki's Baby

So the hotly anticipated Snooki Jr. has arrived, and so far, the world hasn’t exploded in an apocalyptic disaster of fire and brimstone as expected. Maybe not until the little tyke turns 18 and the full force of her parenting has kicked in? Well, regardless, I’d keep an eye on any mysterious changing weather patterns before you plan a major vacation, just in case. I’m not sure how long it takes for an apocalypse to take effect. If you’ve been dying to see what the earth’s next supposed Bringer of Doom will look like, pictures are out of the kid in People.

'Jersey Shore' Will Officially End After 6 Seasons

Say your goodbyes to the GTL lifestyle: "Jersey Shore" will end after six seasons. MTV made the official announcement today, stating that the successful reality show will end after the show's upcoming sixth season. To commemorate the show's past five seasons, MTV will air a retrospective titled "Gym, Tan, Look Back" before the MTV Video Music Awards on September 6. We can speculate plenty as to the reason why the show is being canceled: after all, ratings have still been very high for the show considering it's a cable program, and predictably it does well in the right demographics.

Snooki Loves Her Baby...Diapers? Not so much

As far as Snooki is concerned, having little baby Lorenzo at last on her hip instead of in her poof is just the best thing ever.

But my son is FABULOUS," the fun-sized "Jersey Shore" star wrote recently. All the pain and anxiety is so worth it! I love nursing my little man!" I'll take the high road and suppose she's talking about Lorenzo, not fiancé Jionni LaValle.

'Teen Mom' Jenelle Evans Picks A Twitter War With Snooki

Before the rain of toads overcomes me or one more soaring swine barn-storms my desk, I'm forced to actually defend Snooki. MTV's with-child "Jersey Shore" star has come under fire from, of all people, "Teen Mom" star Jenelle Evans over a questionably worded quote making it appear the once-bronzed half-pint has a head start on shirking motherly duties. "There is no way I'm changing any diapers when my baby is born. That is disgusting," begins the dubious bite originally appearing without attribution on Reddit.

'Jersey Shore' Cast Members Use Big Words about Voting in New 'Funny or Die' Video

Funny or Die is out to prove that just because the guidos and guidettes of "Jersey Shore" drink every night and GTL every day doesn't mean they aren't smart. Okay, maybe that's not exactly the point of this video, but hey, you gotta give Snooki, JWOWW, The Situation and the rest of the gang credit for actually nailing their lines in this pretty complicated script. This new video from Funny or Die's political series features the entire cast of "Jersey Shore," including the pregnant Snooki, engaged in an increasingly didactic conversation about political theory and the importance of voting.
