This month, Jersey Shore has received its worst ratings in over a year. If you've been watching the show, maybe you understand why. Things aren't new and exciting anymore. In the first season, we were all captivated at the mere mention of "gorillas" or "juiceheads," drawn in by the unabashed overuse of hairspray and bronzer, giddy at the concept of GTL. Now it's all commonplace. Their once ridiculous behavior has become so ingrained in pop culture that it's now a shared culture. So what now? Well, we have Deena trying to be Lucille Ball with physical comedy. It's clear she's acting, whether at the behest of the producers or because she's "praying" for another season is unclear, but either way, she's more convincing in shitty 5-Hour Energy commercials.
