Jersey Governor: Jersey Shore Is "Negative" for Our State

Don't count New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie among the fans of MTV's Jersey Shore.

When asked whether the reality show was positive or negative on ABC's This Week (a serious Sunday news show, mind you) he told Jake Tapper the show is negative and "takes a bunch of New Yorkers, drops them at the Jersey Shore and tries to make America feel like this is New Jersey."

Christie isn't the only one not setting his DVR to tape the reality show. Last December, the New Jersey Italian American Legislative Caucus says the show is "wildly offensive" and promotes derogatory ethnic stereotypes.

The Miami-centric second season premieres Thursday at 10/9c.
