Jersey Shore became the highest rated telecast ever on MTV last week, when the Season 3 opener pulled in an astounding 8 million viewers. Excluding any sports broadcast, the premiere pulled in more young viewers in the coveted 12 -34 demographics than any other broadcast or cable show.

“We’re talking about creative ideas for next season,” MTV has said. “We want to be very careful that we don’t retread old territory.”
Spin-offs featuring Shore member Pauly D have already been confirmed and others are surly on the way. “Any spin-off idea would feel very different,” MTV VP Chris Linn said. “Jersey Shore is a very specific construct. The spin-offs would definitely feel different. So I don’t think there’s any danger of diluting the franchise.”

Everyone who watched Laguna & The Hills…this is all our fault.
