It’s T-Shirt tiiiiiiime! Yesterday I invited my brother to see a movie with me, and he texted back (and I quote) “Uh, it’s T-shirt time!”. I asked him what he was talking about, and he informed me that he couldn’t come to the movie because of the ‘Jersey Shore’ premiere. I asked why he couldn’t just DVR it, and he didn’t even respond! ‘Jersey Shore’ is soooooo good – you have to watch it live!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Josh wasn’t alone…

The third season premiere of Jersey Shore on Thursday night delivered MTV’s highest rated series telecast ever notching 8.4 million viewers, according to Nielsen.

The premiere delivered more young viewers (12-34) than any broadcast or cable show this season (excluding sports).

It also bested its season two premiere, which attracted 5.1 million viewers, by 63%.

Jersey Shore has been a game-changer for MTV, which was struggling to rebrand itself after earlier success with unscripted series including Laguna Beach and The Hills.

The network has already announced one spin-off with Pauly D. But more are surely in the offing. Production on the fourth season, which is expected to return to Miami (season three is back in Seaside Heights) has yet to commence as MTV continues to negotiate with the cast.

I haven’t watched the premiere yet – I went and saw ‘The Fighter’ instead. And HELLO – if you are looking for a movie to see tonight – let it be ‘The Figher’. I can’t think of a movie I saw this year that was better. ‘Black Swan’, ‘127 Hours’ and ‘True Grit’ which were all amazing movies. But ‘The Fighter’ – hands down – my favorite movie of the year. Incredible! Christian Bale for the Oscar – I’m saying it now!

Thanks for the heads up re: “The Fighter”. You’re one of many that gave it a stellar review.

I hope “Country Wrong” b.o. stats are dismal & we can finally put Gwyneth Paltrow out to pasture. I do get a sense of glee watching her degrade herself & the lies, oh the lies! I hope this studio ends up in the red just for the 9/11 victims she dissed years ago.
