Well, ferrets are inherently hated.

Think of it like the second place finish for the Olympics against Usain Bolt. Everyone knows one is first, so its like a competition for second.

The show is a great example of the degradation of western society. After watching the show for 10 minutes. my IQ dropped 4 points.

Oh, you lucky dog.

My IQ was consider QI......so, essentially, it reversed itself as a defense mechanism. Think of doing all the drugs the world has, and living....that's how I was.

I never realized the strength of people's perception of this show, lol. It seems I've escaped the deleterious effects of watching it by knowing barely more than a grain of sand about it, lol.

IT FINALLY HAPPENED!!!!! :D

I think that there is no truer litmus of the strength or weakness of a modern society that can exist other than it's idols, and I think that America celebrates Jersey shore with a sort of trans-possessing schadenfreude coupled with an external, malevolently indulgent jealousy. What I mean by that is that by watching the Jersey Shore TV show, the viewer can at the same time revel in the stupidity, nonsense and generalized pointlessness of the show and the lives of its members in a way that does not indict them in any sense, personally culpable for delighting in the degradation of other people -which is categorically what enjoying the TV show Jersey Shore is- while likewise extend themselves and their own life by some sort of pseudo-vicarious measure into the non reality of the TV show, and experience it as if it were, in fact a reality of their (the viewer's) own.

So, in that sense, it's really quite an array of emotions that a Jersey Shore viewer who likes the program must experience. It is a show where the observably and exacerbatedly pathetic lives a given set of twenty-somethings are put on display for an international audience, at the expense of their (the cast's) dignity, for the benefit of both the network (MTV) and the viewer. To the network, obviously, the revenue is enormous, or at least at one point was. To the viewer, the sensation is equally enormous. They can make fun of a life that they wish for themselves that they could live, sure. But why? Why is it so d@mn popular?

Nietzsche might say because the human creature enjoys eliciting pain. The ironic thing, is that the Jersey Shore cast, while their lives are a mockery, seem quite pleased with the status of themselves and their position in society. The cynic in me is tempted to conclude that the cause for such nonsense is no more than an inability to recognize their own folly for what it is, but the pragmatist in me wonders if theirs is a willful ignorance? Could it be also or instead that the money is enough to make making loons of themselves worthwhile? I'm sure one German philosopher would be smiling at the thought, with the grim look of "I told you so" on his face.

Personally, I'm glad that Jersey Shore is no more. It's a disgraceful show, with a disgraceful premise that propagates an even more disgraceful culture (my opinion there, no more or less), but I think with great certainty that the Jersey Shore cultural maxim is one that is not something the show imposed on American airwaves, but rather found its way to the mainstream media because it existed somewhere below. That's what really concerns me.

That sort of self-indulgent, hedonistic barbarism is just offensive. It's developmental sloth that theirs is a life paradigm that others embrace, and even more indicative of a weakened society that we take such great pleasure in an outlet so cheap. I say "cheap" not just in the cost sense of it in a financial sense, but in a cultural sense as well. What does it say of us when we celebrate with such hypocrisy (both of a personal and cultural character at once internal and external)?

Perhaps a few more thoughts.... later to come.

Damn you people are pathetic. This is good news to you? This is what worries you?Why do you give a $hit? Why do intelligent people even waste time worrying about what's happening on Jersey Shore? Or any reality show for that matter? It drives me insane. I don't want to hear about Snookie but thanks to you fvcking people, I damn near know her whole life story. I know the name of her baby! Why? Because of the thousand so called "jokes" and rants. I've never heard the people of Jersey shore talked about in a positive manner but that's why they're famous. You guys turned morons into millionaires because you refused to SHUT THE FU CK UP. You can think they don't know what you think of them? They know and the thrive off it! The go on the show and act like douchbags because they know you people can't wait to mention their names. And you fall for it and think you're more intelligent. Uh huh. Yep you're winning. Guarantee they'll be back unless you people wise up.

YOU are what's wrong with society because YOU let it affect you.

@ MIG, The show gets so much flak, because of what it endorses. I'll be honest, I think it's fun to watch a bunch of idiots fist fight over what someone said about them behind their back, no matter how mundane and idiotic it is.

But that's not why we do no like the show.

We don't like it because they get paid over 3000$ an episode each, just to act like idiots.
The fact that people actually look up to these gweedos, and some respect them, is the harder thing. The fact that they can have a baby, and still drink and party, shows their lack of caring for life, or anything other then themselves.

The angering part, is how they get to be narcissistic, and get paid to do that, and get to live, eat, and do everything for free.

It's messed up.
