Jersey Shore Is Still a Hit

In Jersey Shore's fifth season premiere last night, the cast was up to their same ol' Ron Ron juice, bickering, getting wasted ways, and the ratings reflected that: Jersey Shore is still a very big hit. A total of 7.6 million viewers watched the episode, which was the No. 1 most watched cable show of the 2011-12 season among 12-to-34-year-olds. It was also the second highest rated series on all of television — both cable and network — this season in that same demo, behind only the debut of Two and a Half Men.
