The Superficial: MTV's "Jersey Shore" is "an unstoppable fuckbox of dumb"
Jersey Shore isn't Friends

http://thesuperficial.com/2010/01/the_jersey_shore_cast...

Because combined they're an unstoppable fuckbox of dumb, the cast of Jersey Shore is attempting a Friends-style negotiation to return for another season. TMZ reports:

As we first reported, MTV offered each cast member a $10,000 signing bonus and $5,000 per episode. We're told the cast rejected the offer and made it clear they would all stand together and hold out for their price, though they didn't say what it was. MTV made a new offer of $10,000 an episode -- there are 12 episodes in the new season -- but so far the cast hasn't responded.

We're told MTV already has replacements if Snooki, Pauly D, The Situation and the others don't accept the offer on Monday. But, we're told, MTV is happy to mix and match if some of the cast accepts the offer and other don't.

As for who's being the most hard-headed in the negotiations -- The Situation and Pauly D.


I had no idea there was a shortage of over-tanned Italian douchebags in the tri-state area who like free trips to the beach. If that's the case, I'm sure Duluth, Iowa will be another ratings juggernaut between Teen Mom and Got VD? Here's Your Own Show.

I love that description. Incidentally, I think "The Superficial" is a most excellent domain name.

3. I agree. That does, in fact, seem to be the Situation.
See what I did there?

4. Who cares?
People doing real jobs producing worthwhile things are generally making far less than $120,000. Nobody will notice if these morans are replaced by scabs.

7. I made the mistake of watching it because the New Yorker reviewed it.
Yuck. Total brainless greaseballs.

the New Yorker said that viewers can feel superior to these people. Amen.

8. As somebody who just drove past* the "Guido litter box" yesterday
I hope that their fuckbox of dumbness gets the better of them and they shrink back into the obscurity from which they came.

* it's not hard to drive past their litter box when you don't live far away and love the solitude of the ocean during the off-season.
